Getting ready again
The shelves are cleaned and washed, ready again for the next firing. Using the energy from the last firing helps to lead into the next. It's a very good time to think about what pots to make, and what direction to go, how you will fire differently.
Wood is always important, and there never seems to be enough, cut, split and stacked. This stack is from a blue spruce that came from my front yard.
This is the oak and birch that come from the saw mill by St. Cloud. I've got about half cut of what will be needed for the next firing. Well it's been rainy so the wood is on hold... time to make some mugs. ~ Make Good Pots
