Just to keep you going....I've had a day at the Court Cupboard Gallery, then a kiln opening and a marvelous supper for the seven of us that stayed on to eat.
A veritable feast...baked potatoes, plus an array of what was "reduced" in the supermarket and what was left in the fridge...a wonderful mix of various salads and things!! There was not much left at the end of a full kitchen tableful!
and now? I'm tired!!
I need to start another making session and all of us have been mentally held back, waiting for the results of this firing.
Our mentor, Rosemary Cochrane, said that myself and the other kiln firer in our group tend to fire "by the seat of our pants"...and don't stick rigidly to a schedule...and this is what she wanted us to do. By so doing, we've had the best firing yet in this kiln....and still we learn with it and know what we'll do differently next time!
