Jeff and I spent the last couple of days glazing and loading the kiln. The big pots are sprayed with ash glaze and lined with tenmoku. The big pots and three vessel sinks take up a lot of the space in this kiln, but there is still a good variety of pots in there.
It was a pleasant couple of days for working outside, and we are really enjoying the view that surrounds our kiln shed.
The door was bricked by 5:30 pm. We had an offering of sake to the kiln gods, before calling it a day. The cup on the right was made with clay, dug in our yard. A fitting vessel to toast the first firing.
Jeff lit the burners this morning.
