Unloading kiln 11/10

Best shot of Shibata boys

Just quick update.

We unloaded kiln on Wednesday morning and it seemed OK firing. I need to experiment ash glazes test. But there are some good pots at least.
Taking down door bricks
2nd chamber door side
2nd chamber wall side
3rd chamber is good for refiring
We had a Japanese beginner potter, Yamazawa-san from Durham, NC this time and he brought a lot of nice Japanese food (of course sushi) because he owns a Japanese restaurant in Durham. There are many Japanese restaurants in US but not many which Japanese people really own. His restaurant, Yamazushi use good ingredients and fresh seafood and make real Japanese dishes.

There are more things to do before Celebration of Seagrove Potters. 
Gambatte. We are almost there.
