The ‘Cooking with Gas’ team loaded the kiln on Saturday 1st April. All the work left over from the last firing was loaded, some of this being there since last year, along with new work delivered since the March firing. This made for a full kilnload so we are moving to fire it straight away. Only one tray of newly glazed mugs was left over, so there was only just enough work available. (Sorry Lyuba, we will get those in next firing).
It is really good to get the work on the shelves for gas fired work cleared, and some had sat there as additional work has been slow to come forward since the November firing. Also, this has made room for the old shelf and table to be removed to make room for larger new shelving which is being fitted along the end wall.
The kiln will be fired over Easter with unloading on Easter Monday at 2pm. If you have work that was waiting to be fired, please try to make it to the unloading so you can identify your work and take it away. With new shelf-building proceeding, the storage available for fired work is limited.
I am planning for the next firing to be within 6 weeks, but just as soon as sufficient volume of work is available.
