Firing Wood Kiln for Hickory Show

Duster seemed unimpressed with
all the pots placed on their sides

This past week has stressed me out, finishing up the making of 45 foot-soaking bowls, throwing some small pots to fire with the foot-soaking bowls, re-making six more foot-soaking bowls to replace the ones that cracked during drying and then glazing and loading the wood kiln in preparation for the Catawba Valley Pottery & Antiques Show.

Levi is away this weekend, so Mary and I loaded the kiln today It's chock-full of soul pots that Levi made while Mary and I were away in Ireland last month.

The jar on the top shelf wouldn't quite fit
at first, so I set it on wads, on its side,
then I thought better of it, lowered the
shelf below it a tiny bit and made it fit.
