I loaded the kiln yesterday and I broke three pieces. First there was the apple pear which I dropped and it fell on one of my slipped leaves.
Next I broke a flower off of my vined pedestal. I didn't take a photo of that and it was too tall to fit in this load anyway.
Then I broke a section off of a medium sized flower. Welcome to the clutzville chronicles. That's kind of a catchy name, maybe I can be paid to write a whole series on that theme. Ha.
I did finish loading the kiln.
It's almost finished firing now. I fell asleep and didn't close the lid till 1200 degrees F instead of 1000. Hope there aren't any more mishaps inside. I better start setting the alarm if I lie down for a 'short' cat nap.
I have three fans going in the garage. It's very hot in there, even though the garage door is open and the back door too. Do you know where your kiln operator is? If they're sleeping, please wake them up. Thanks for reading and for your comments.
