Some of the first pots out of the kiln.

This is a view looking out of the kiln. So many pictures are looking into the kiln. Good to look the other way every now and then!
Here are a few of the columns out amounst the flowers.
This is a picture looking between the columns. It looks a bit like a forest.
Here is a picture of the next layer in. It looks like there are some goodies here. The columns on the bottom of the tier got well reduced with some browns, blacks and reds showing. I've added progressive amounts of red clay to the body as the pots go further back. The pots in the fourth and fifth stoke hole had a bizen like clay that is very red and matures at about cone 4-7.

Looks like you've got some goodies there.

Eric & Mike: Merci and Thanks! The thrill of a good firing is quickly tempered by weight of the kiln shelves that have to be moved out of the kiln. Yoga, every morning, carries the day.
