It's been another very long day today, glazing and packing the kiln.
It was fantastic having Alex's help.
By the time Marky Mark arrived this evening, we'd finished stacking the back which is the hardest bit as it demands lots of climbing in and out of the kiln.
Then we worked hard to finish the front. It's full, - there were a few pots left over, so they'll make the next firing in March.
The gas burner's in overnight to drive away any moisture and we'll start first thing in the morning.
Matt's coming down to help. Check out this great page all about him on the Ceramike site.
Marky Mark is joining us later in the day and Jess is going to come up in the evening for a shift. During her time with me she'll have dug and processed clay, made pots, mixed slip, mixed glaze and fired the kiln.
Off to bed, cross your fingers for me!
