Copper Red Salt

Here is a small bowl that came out of the back chamber. It's made with Continental Clay's
B- Clay and salted at cone 10.  The copper red is better than I could get in gas firing.  Who knew?

Two Tsubo and a Chawan made from a mid fire red clay.

Here are a couple of Tsubo's and a Chawan that were made out of a mid-fire red clay. They were fired to about cone 6-8.
They were lined with a cone 6 shino. The chawan has the shino on the inside

A couple three small bottles.

Here are a few small bottles out of the back of the fall firing. I got a new camera and still am getting comfortable with it.  Mike delivered nine more bundles of wood so it is another day of cutting and stacking.

Some Yunomi

Here are a couple of Yunomi from the firing. These got some drama from the flyash.

I put some salt cups in and I think that this yunomi was sitting next to one. 

Well it's warmed up some so splitting wood is the order of the day.

Pictures from the exhibition

Here are a couple of pics from the latest exhibition. We had the first snow storm of the winter for the reception, but lots of folks showed up and a good time was had by all.

It was a great fall firing, and the exhibition is up and it looks pretty good.  So if you are in the area stop on by and check it out.

Little bowl fresh from firing

Here is a little bowl from the back of the kiln. The kiln is still about 300F, but I was able to reach in stoke hole 5 and pull it out.  It's been cooling for three days and we might be able to unload tomorrow.

Here is the mandatory flaming chimney picture.  They are always fun.

Soaking at Cone 10

A couple of burning wood pics. The firing is going well, I think that it has to do with an excellent stoking crew. After so many years of working together, it go's like clockwork.
Right now we are soaking for awhile to get some good flyash builtup.
