Firing #20


We fired this kiln load in 14 hours, using hardwood at the beginning, pine in the middle and scrap pine and hardwood at the end. We reached cone 11 in the front and cone 8 in the back, maintaining as much of a neutral atmosphere as we could as I had a lot of high-iron local clay in the kiln.









The bottles and bowl above are made from the
clay I got from a friend in Columbia, SC.
Several pieces cracked during the firing, so
I'll be adding something to the clay next time
to strengthen it.
