As a child when the grass started peeking through the left over snow I knew that spring was on the way. This was most likely in May but here, well its the first day of February and the snow is going away. Yesturday was sunny and nice. I could hardly get the kids back outside! I spent the day glazing while the kids had a snow day. I am happy to report that the element splice did in deed work. I can't believe I've been doing pots for about 14 years and never new that trick!
I'm firing everything without my kiln sitter. The small arm that holds up has not been moved yet because I'm in need of a new set of Alan wrenches to get that sucker off! Its kind of nice watching the cones bend for a change but I have to admit you do get lazy just waiting for the kiln sitter to go off. Today I am glaze firing.
