Fully Loaded Kiln Before Firing

Fully Loaded Kiln Before Firing

I loaded the kiln yesterday and actually started my firing yesterday as well. This is what a full kiln of freshly glazed pots looks like before they are fired to 2250 degress F. The firing took about 15 hours and needs to cool for the next couple days before I can unload the work to look at the results. In the next week I will glaze my next batch of about 100 porcelain pieces. This next firing will be different from the last in that I will introduce more oxygen to the kiln during the firing and then slowly cool the kiln in hopes of producing crystal formation in my glazes – I’ll keep you updated with pictures from both firings as soon as I have them.
