So this is what the kiln site looked like after we completed the loading, and before we bricked up the doorway. Only partially visible is the nearly 3 cords of wood that John split in the last months. Thanks John!
Here’s another view:
Here are some of the works of mine that are in this firing: The “Four Wise Sentinels”.
The “Dance of the Flattened Bottles”:
And the “Six Singing Sisters”:
And an assortment of trays, wall vases, teabowls, and much more: cups, vases, bottles, facetted bowls….
After the tiring work of loading, we have taken a week to get back to work and to rest up a bit for the exertion of the coming firing. Not only the works have been loaded, but our hopes and wishes and anticipations — along with our pursuit of mystery and surprise. I’ll let you know how it goes.
