Unload, Glaze, Reload,Fire!

I unloaded my earthenware from the kiln at the Arts Council today. I didn't blow anything up this time! Yea. It was a bisque firing and you can see I had some bigger bowls and some slab dishes. I also had some luncheon plates (which are off camera), a few tankards and pitchers.

I managed to get all this glazed and back into the kiln. I had to employ some creative stacking, but thanks to my years of packing my salt kiln I have lots of good knowledge. I recently bought some plate setters too and they came in really handy. Everything made it in except one small soup bowl.

The firing will be complete tomorrow afternoon and I hope to unload on Sunday.
