Five Hundred Pots - Will they fit?

Back of the kiln is nearly filled

Will I be able get all 500 pieces for the Uwharrie Mountain Run into the kiln? I think it'll be close. Levi and Mary spent the afternoon making "little bitty" wads of fireclay/sand/sawdust to place between the smaller jars while I cleaned shelves and posts. Then we all worked together to start loading the kiln. Levi wadded and put together two pots. Mary carried them out to me, and I placed them in the kiln.

One last bisque load is finishing up right now in the electric kiln, so we're cutting it close as usual. Firing day is Sunday. I wanted to have a day of rest before firing, but that doesn't always work out.

More pots waiting to be wadded
