Solid but had some firing problems on a few with over glaze melt and the kiln shelf. 2 of the rectangles lost some chunks of feet , but I learned a few lessons along the way. Initially i didn’t have a great grasp on how to slow the drying pre bisque , I figured it out about 4 pots in, so the first 4 I built had some cracks , only one of them was the kinda crack that ruined the outdoor viability. Loading another 20 into the kiln on Tuesday and hopefully I can get a lock on how to prevent losing pots during firing. As for glaze I just said %^*# it and layered based on fun, since I’ve drilled digital fire and I think after a few test batches I can get some more predictable results. Dunno long story is I’m still learning and having a lot of fun with it :)

As of wensday next week; I’ll be running my own skutt kiln, right now I’m using the studio and I’ll probally keep using it for bisque firing. I’ll live in a huge artistic community and they have been beyond amazing with guidance. Not to mention they run a massive wood fire and gas kiln during summer :) I’ve been talking w the owners about doing a few massive cone 10 wood fire pots in exchange for my wood hauling services this summer . The kiln purchase was a mix of opportunity and the need to test glaze
Recipes because brushing premixed doesn’t seem sustainable for someone who isn’t planning on selling anyhring too soon .
