Test Kiln

David has a small test kiln. We fired the kiln. It should be fired within 5 hours, but it took 8 hours. It has several reason. We did not open the damper enough and we put too big piece close to the chimney, and we used small wood pieces. Anyway, we have got cone10 and we pulled out some Seto black glaze pieces. Some of them were really nice.

Moved to North Carolina, Seagrove

We moved to North Carolina from Shigaraki Japan. We took our cat whose name is Zubee. We gave a tranquilizer to him, but it did not work, even worth. He was trying to get out from the cage and crying all the time. We were very sorry about him, but he made it! Congratulations Zubee! You are the first cat came to Seagrove from Shigaraki.
