Lots of shino glaze in this kiln load. Levi made a series of pots from large to small, and we decided to glaze them in a shino glaze that we've had success with in the past. With the larger ones, we dunked them on their side into half of a blue plastic barrel filled with the glaze.
We stacked this kiln pretty tightly, and in the very front we decided to stack shelves to the left and right of a couple of big pots in the middle, something we've never done. I'm thinking a lot of the flame will be traveling down the middle of the kiln to start with and around the big pots in the middle.
We'll see how it works.
