It has been a mostly grey damp day here, some rain showers and a few sprinkles of snow pellets.
Firing has proceeded steadily, as if you push it too hard when it is cold it seems to use a lot more gas. You also get freezing condensation on the outside of the bottles, which is useful to show the gas level in the bottle, but does slow the firing.
Ginger cake has been made this afternoon..."Canadian Ginger Cake"...I've had the recipe for many years, I still don't know why it is Canadian!! Also Carrot , Squash and Shallot soup....with fresh ginger!! It must be the weather!!
Back to the workshop now as the kiln is almost at temperature.
