Well, the firing I did in my gas kiln proved quite an ordeal - having to repeatedly swap gas bottles that were frozen to the ground as the temperature plummeted to minus 10C.....but, the next morning....aaaah isn't it beautiful.
This is a view along the canal, or 'lode', that gave the village its name. The white building is the mill. It was used to grind various things including coprolite that was exported as a fertilizer. it's one of the things I have been hunting for to use in a glaze, but so far without success.
Lovely as it is I hope it's all gone by my next firing on Friday!
