Perhaps you read my post from the other day about my recent setbacks, if not, I think the title says it all. Today was the boost that I needed. Despite the fact that two kiln shelves collapsed during the firing, I only lost one piece and amazingly none of the pieces under the collapsed shelves were ruined even the tiniest bit! Some stunning crystals grew in this batch and I am so happy with the way the pieces came out! As soon as the kiln was unloaded, I loaded it back up with items to bisque. The next glaze firing is scheduled for Tuesday morning: platters, trays and clocks! For now, here is a little sample of what came out of the kiln.
