Well the firing wasn't that great really. I stupidly used an old batch of glaze inside some of the pots which bubbled and blistered. It was made even worse by the fact that a shelf near the top of the pack, broke during the firing, bringing pots downwards onto pots below and backwards knocking the stack behind against the back wall of the chamber - lots of pots stuck together.
Oh well, I could either get stressed and depressed, or take it on the chin and make some more. So it's a working weekend. The new pots are better than the ones they're replacing so that's a positive. Some huge jugs made today, more tomorrow. Also got the handle on my Dad's jug.
Can't believe I used that old glaze, why hadn't I thrown it away? What a plonker.
