Unloading #13

My usual group of good friends joined me yesterday in the cold and rain to unload some hot pots. In spite of changing bagwalls & exit flues and using untested wood ash in a glaze, all my worries were for nought. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect black and blue slip, but most of my tests bore some fruit and I will continue to chase that idea. I may forever fight to get more heat to the bottom of the first chamber (changing the bagwall didn't seem to help).
I need to go back out today and go through everything one by one and start to sort out the work for "Pottery on the Hill" which is less than 3 weeks away. 
Will you be coming to the show?!

No doubt you'll be tweaking it right to the end, Dan, but it does look like your success percentages are pretty high. Nice pots.

Yes, I will be coming to the show. I can't wait to see all your new pots. They look gorgeous in the photos, and I'm sure even more wonderful in up close.

Pots look super nice Dan. Way to go. Hope the show goes well. It's an exciting one for sure and I wish I could make it up there.

Have been lax about keeping up with your site. Looks like some good stuff out of the kiln.
