Wood Firing Nov 2014

We just had a wood firing in Oct, but made more pots and had one more firing for Celebration of Seagrove Potters this Fall. Also I made some experimental pots with new claybodies. It's good to try new materials for firing, always.

NC pure wild clay

Other claybody

And more!

Started firing prep in the beginning of Nov.

Autumn leaves

Loading kiln

Door was closed at 3am

Unfortunately fire woods were so wet and it took much longer to get heat than usual. The only this we could do was just be patient.

At 5am, before sunset

Almost there

We were able to shut dowm firing at 10am. All night firing was so tiring...

Opeped the door after three days from firing

Pots will be exhibitied at Celebration of Seagrove Potters.
