This was the day Molly and I fired the salt kiln. It was the best firing I’ve had so far.

We spent the day, cleaned up the kiln yard, finished up before 9pm, got to ^7 with the tip of ^8 just bending.  Molly befriended Casey the sculpture student and got to see how soem great power tools worked.

Patrick stopped by to advise and suggest when I was stalled, and later, my Jeff drove up from Toledo (the boys were invited to a sleepover) and helped me salt it.  16-18 pounds of rock pickling salt.

I’ll photograph the best pots for the blog ASAP.
