Hey Folks,

Man this faster connection has made it a lot easier to keep up with presen=
t time and how this new kiln load is doing. For about the last month I've m=
anaged to glaze and load the new pots in the tail setting and the rest of t=
he Mid-tail... (4:09)

and (3:58)

... with some Morel mushroom hunting results at the end.

The Mid-front and Front settings of the load used up all my 12"x24" kiln s=
helves ... (15:06)

... for this I took a bunch of shorter clips and put them all together for =
one 15 minute movie.

Stay tuned for the firing which started about 3 AM Wednesday, June 8, 2011=
with a couple cans of charcoal. I'm probably gonna keep her under 150F for=
at least 24 hours, maybe longer, to dry any fresh clay and give me a chanc=
e to rest up after bricking up the door so stay in there eh and thanks for =
taking time to study what I'm making.
