Candling the kiln. ▫▫▫
The monsoon is slowly but surely making its presence felt - the rainshowers are not exactly deluges yet, but the air is most certainly full of precipitatory promise!
As is evident by the need to light a couple of candles in the kiln prior to a firing, to get rid of any stubborn remnants of moisture in the work. ▫▫▫
It's a rather matter-of-fact thing to do, but candling the kiln on a rainy evening always makes me feel all warm & happy about my job!
Go figure! ▪▪▪

New troop on the way - each round has come with its own side project or 50 & apparently this is no exception. 💞 #eclipse #peelaway #hushandflutter #motherofmoths #kilnprep

I sawed planks. This is fuel for a salt firing that's happening next weekend. The potter doing the firing is Lexa Lawrence and I'm one of the volunteers. The wood comes from a couple of old sheds and some pallets and they needed breaking down and cutting to size, the size being the length of the firebox. I stacked them into normal planks and thin planks. We should get through most of what's in the second picture. Wood prep day was fun and physically challenging. My neck is slightly sunburnt -- I knew it was happening but I couldn't do anything about it short of packing in and going home, but obviously there was work to be done. Having said that we had regular, long tea breaks, biscuits for dunking, and good conversation. #potter #ceramics #woodfired #saltglaze #kilnprep

Where was this thing when I was an apprentice? It’s my new favorite toy. #grindingshelves #kilncleanup #kilnprep

It takes wood to fire a wood kiln. We mind as well start our own tree service. Thankfully we have some hard workers @dd_woods1010 @birdleaf_stoneware @benroticeramics
Replenishing the wood for our next firing. Kiln opening will be during the Sedona Open studio tour April 28th at 11 a.m. Join us! .

Watching the kiln wash dry... 🌬I love Washington. #smokey #kilnprep #washingtoncoldness #glassartist #myofficetoday

Throw back to this past Thursday! It took a group effort to prep and load the kiln!! It took about 7+ hours to load all the work! With everyone working together it was deemed a success! .

Cutting some kiln posts thanks to some well equipped neighbors#kilnprep

And the glazing begins!

I've mentioned before that this is my least favorite part, so in the days ahead I'll just be head down and trudging forward. The finish line is totally worth all the plodding, and soon I'll be loading that kiln👍🏽
