the first pots of 2012


It was a good firing overall, even though we went to ^11. Some of the ash glaze mugs dripped onto shelves, but that can happen at ^10. One of the sinks was perfect... the other needs to be refired :-(.
Jeff made a third that we will fire at the same time... always good to have back ups! I listed a couple of the flower mugs on Etsy and we have a bunch going to the Co-op of Seagrove Potters.
I ordered propane yesterday and we should have enough pots to fire the gas kiln again next week... and a raku firing very soon!

  3. Good news to have one of the sinks come out perfect! The mugs are beautiful. How many firings do you get done in a year? So. Much. Work.!!

  4. this kiln is small so we fire frequently... sometimes once a month and when it's the busy season it could be as often as once a week.
