Who knows why the shelf on the top fractured. Could have been a crack when I got the shelf. Could have been cracked during handling and cleaning. You can see the corner down on the floor. I'm thinking it's resting on that bottle, but maybe not.
Let's hope the kiln god (at right) I placed in the foundation of the kiln during construction did his job.
The pitcher and jug on the top shelf didn't fall, and I'm planning on a careful extraction of pots on that shelf when the kiln cools. No reaching in and grabbing a pot off the top shelf until I can get inside and support things while I grab those pots on top.
There's some nice ash drips on the two bottles on the floor. I hope they're all right.
