Today has been really windy, and on top of not the best night of sleep that makes me tired.
It has been an unsettling sort of wind, whirling about as it blows across the valley at the mountain top, causing turbulence at village level.
So a slow start and a long lunch, but today I've repacked the kiln already. Much was already glazed, but the new iron glazed pots had to have their waxed feet (and rims) re-wiped.
I hope that will work, but just in case I battwashed the affected shelf as it wasn't too bad, and used it for pots with that glaze again.
On a good note I had a rummage and found another full size kin shelf, so I have three platters in this kiln load.
I had a walk up the mountain yesterday afternoon to collect the crabapples Col had told me about and found some below another crabapple tree that he'd wanted to plant pips from.
So a good and productive walk. Amongst other things I saw that a gate that he'd fretted about it not closing properly had thankfully been mended.
The gate alongside it, that I'd never seen open before, stood open.
Read what you like into that.
