Kiln gods are supposed to be made of wet clay and placed on the =
kiln as it is fired...Then they do their part by exploding as the kiln =
heats up...They are symbolic of the sacrifice involved in my continuing =
to produce fine art that glorifies god in a godless world...If they =
don't explode, then they haven't worked and sacrificed enough....When I =
have one that survives I sometimes fire it in the next load...Then it =
becomes a small sculpture...and has no more kiln influencing =
power...Pretty arrogant of some people to think that my kiln gods have =
no power anyway!...My god doesn't care much for silly human =
rules....Organized religions are all about consolidation of money and =
power and have not whit to do with worship...My god has enabled me to =
make glorious art so I don't think empowering a little kiln god would be =
much of a stretch....Hell, I know my god likes me....I am constantly =
surprised at the arrangements made for me...I have a great connection, =
and I might just ask that those who fire without kiln gods should have =
their fire blow out and the gas accumulateHEHEHE....BOOM....HEHEHE...
Hey Tommy, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!...You took a LONG time to pick her =
out so she must be a real peach!
