We did a wood firing on Nov 9 to 10 which is very typical habit as Seagrove potters.
Started preheating on Nov 8th, 10pm, then switched to wood from 5am on Nov 9.
Had some happenings and finished firing at 3am.
22 hours by wood, highest 11 down, lowest 10 down.
Unloading will be on Tuesday evening.
