Ist Firing

25th July2015

6 weeks passed and still I have not got the gas connected. My gas installer became very ill and I am now on the waiting list for another gas man. Kiln is packed and I wait!


August 6th

Today is the day. Scary but very exciting. Can I get the temperature rise just right? Will I manage a good reduction atmosphere in the kiln. So much to learn.

10 hours later – firing is complete. Well there were a few steep learning curves…the flames going up the chimney were not planned…opened the damper and eased up on the  reduction …and now I wait 2 days before it will be cool enough to open.

August 8th

Pretty pleased!
