Pot Shots

Well well, said an old man. Now I'm no old man but these bourbon bottles make me feel a little less vivacious.

The kiln rocketed off and some pots were compromised due to dunting and poor Kentucky clay from the Old Hickory Clay Company.

Overall I am pleased the kiln worked. I plan to upload more pics as I get them touched up. Cheers!

Babysmamagama Salt/Soda Kiln

Yesterday my "baby's-mama-gama" kiln rocketed to cone 10 in twelve hours. Ian Thomas and myself have been making work for the kiln the past week. Last time I fired the kiln my blower quit and so did I soon afterwards. This firing went amazing smooth and we added burritos of salt mixed with soda once cone 9 fell. We will unload on Monday evening and I will post new pics of the wares. But for now, this sneak peek will have to do.
