The kiln is firing a glaze load as I write this! It is the first glaze firing since installing new elements and a new thermocouple, so I am really hoping all is going well in there and that beautiful crystals are forming. I also have a few new glazes in there so I am anxious to see how they will turn out. So, what pieces are in the kiln? I am glad you asked: earring trees, and pieces for mirrors and rings! It feels good to be checking off the firings. I have a lot to do and not a whole lot of time to get it all done. I am a full-time mom now as well, so that adds to my lack of time. One day at a time, right? Friday evening I will be able to open up the kiln and hopefully unload as well to get ready for the next firing!
