Tomorrow this lot goes up in flames.  What fun to be a potter – creative use of the most destructive force.  We managed to prove just how destructive flame can be by actually breaking a kiln burner with a flame from a blow-torch while trying to burn out the soot from inside the copper pipe.   So we’re one burner short – but I’m just going to shove a gas torch through one of the bottom view ports.  Very dense pack now that it was completed today – going to be a long firing…

Almost completed right bank of kiln yesterday

 

Here are my two little rice bowls for the competition in Durbanville – a very pale blue celadon -

Photos of the firing tomorrow, and of the kiln opening – maybe by late afternoon Wednesday, otherwise Thursday morning….
