Unpacked my kiln today from the first glaze firing with some of my NFUS plates in. Had to run backwards and forwards from my workshop across to the barn where my kiln is in a snow storm! It’s been the wildest of wild weather these last few days. So far the snow hasn’t stuck but fingers crossed for tonight. I was complaining a couple of days ago about being fed up cycling to work in full waterproofs and with spare shoes in my bag through torrential rain evryday. Today there was no rain but there was snow and strong gusts of wind. Still, it does me good. Anyway I’m really pleased to have some of my cow plates fired and finished, it’s a relief. Another two bisque firings required and three more glaze. Hope we don’t get any power cuts. I really should try some raw glazing again. Doug do you raw glaze your pots?
So here’s a picture of a finished one. Twelve done, thirtythree to go.
