I'm just waiting for the first bisque to cool after yesterday's firing. I know there will be casualties...I turned the gas up a little as it reached 300 C , as the flame seemed to be going down- the gas bottle was nearly empty I had thought...and it went up too fast. Hopefully it will only be one large bowl....
The next batch is drying nicely with the heat of the cooling kiln, hopefully that will be another kilnfull, if not there are small things that need making that can fill it.
I need it all glazed to have things to send a examples with the application for the Aberystwyth Christmas Craft Market. I could just use work I already have, but it would be a pity not to get these in as the shapes are developing nicely.
The opening of the Craft in the Bay Summer Show is tonight!
