"The chief source of art is man's pleasure in his daily work, which expresses itself and is embodied in that art itself."
William Morris (1834-1896)

Opening the kiln

We fired again last night, the 28th, and opened the kiln tonight, the 29th. Here you can see the glazed pots loaded ready to fire and then the finished results. If you count the number of rows of electric kiln elements (the horizontal stripes) in the photo above and compare with the photo below, you'll see the evidence of the 10% shrinkage the pots typically make.

One of our cats, Powder, helped pick the best of the kiln.
