The Results Are In!

Sunday morning the door came down on the kiln. Overall, we are happy with the results. The few issues that we had, had nothing to do with kiln design itself, but with a burner that was not firing clean, and a glaze that has been acting up.

Front stack, there was a stack of plate setters on the top that we removed before I snapped the photo.
We fired a lot of student pots in this round and they all came out great. 

The back stack was pigs and the big pots. We are really happy with the two ginkgo vases. The large vase on the front right, will get re-fired. Jeff thinks it would look best put in a salt firing.
I love the patterns of brick in the catenary arch... it almost intrigues me as much as the pottery inside.

A better shot of the two ginkgo leaf vases. They will both be available for sale during the Celebration of Spring Studio Tour, here in Seagrove, NC. April 16 -17, 2016.
