"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)

Unloading kiln

We unloaded the last firing. The kiln has to be slowly cooled for 12 hrs. before we prop open the lid to facilitate the process. Once it is around 250 degrees, we open the lid all the way.

Then using hot pads, we carefully unload the top shelves, remove those shelves and allow the next section to cool off. Eventually all the pots and shelves are removed from the kiln. This kiln was filled with our 'Classics' for orders and anticipated sales at our final two retail shows in October.
