We should only have to fire one more time in the raku kiln. Yesterday we unloaded and had some really good results. What a relief, because everything but a few items were orders.
I have been letting Jeff handle most everything about firing in this little kiln. I have done the occasional burner turn up and that is it. He has done the loading and putting it into reduction. I am afraid of what would happen if I made any adjustments. We are so very anxious to be firing our new kiln.
After the unloading, yesterday was spent sanding and packing pots for shipping. Today is a day of meetings and other obligations. We will get back to kiln construction on Saturday.
