How has it been TWO MONTHS since I last wrote on here??? Well, I’ve been busy and, thanks to my wonderful father, now have a kiln that works! We set it off to fire for the first time on Monday evening (13th) not an unlucky number for me apparently, as everything fired beautifully! We waited with bated breath as the numbers on the controller gradually rose and fell. With stern encouragement from my gorgeous friend, Cait, of Kiss Me Kate Ceramics, I waited until the kiln was at 60 degrees to open it – an agonising wait!! All was well and I am VERY happy with the results (see pictures below). Next step, glazing!
