Firing 24

My daughter Chelsea and I loaded the wood-fired kiln today, and Mary and I will start the firing at around 6:30 a.m. tomorrow. I stacked the shelves in the rear of the kiln about five inches further from the back of the kiln than usual, hoping for a higher temperature this firing at the back set of shelves. Here's how we stacked the shelves this time:
The front stack: darker pots are slipped with Ohio clay.
This is the rear stack. I forgot to take the picture before starting next stack.
Here's the next stack. Chelsea has her little birds for her jewelry at base of jars.
Here's the stack right behind the front stack. Bowls are special order for an meditation altar.
