Waiting on the kiln opening.

Even though I only have one pot and 9 test tiles in the kiln, I can't wait to un-brick the door and see what the Kiln God gave us. I posted some pictures of the firing on Firing@CreekBendPottery.

I had some sad news this weekend. The small catenary arch, test kiln named "Kitten" that I built at the Appalachian Center for Craft is no more. Owing to a problem with the soda kiln, the bureaucrats in TTU's administration decided that the kilns had to be moved from where they have been for the last 20 years. Kitten just wasn't made to be portable. Oh well, she served well for a while.

I am anxious to get back to building my kiln.
