It took 18 hours to fire one of my kilns the other day as it would not rise to the wanted temperature.
But after hearing the Dawn chorus of birds I finally could let it rest . Notice a new Kiln shed made by James Benzing.
Glazed pots before the firing ...
Some of the fired pots. Will show more and a film later on.
These are the new shelving. And this is my proud son Theo in front of the outside display..
