Welcome to my blog. I will attempt to make it much more than just a pitiful list of the relentlessly mundane minutiae of my daily existence but if you feel that I have failed try to imagine all the stuff that I haven't posted.

Good firing!

Yes yes yes. It was a beautiful sunny day, which bode well for the opening and....
it was good.

The reduction wasn't as heavy as usual, I got some of the dreaded 'melon skin' but temperature was perfect. This is the front of the stack. Left hand side all a bit weird as it seemed to miss out on the path of the flame.

...and here's a little beauty from the middle of the top shelf. Overall it was pretty good with a selection of real stunners. The modified kiln was rather problematic to fire + caused a few cool/weird areas in the chamber, so I won't be doing that again. Full kin next time.
