This was not a great firing but there were still pieces which I very much enjoyed out of it. I made some adjustments to the bag wall in a attempt to break up the flame and push it up higher in the ware chamber with this firing. The subsequent changes, and likely the fact that I’ve only fired this kiln once before, caused the top to get much hotter much more quickly than the bottom…which is the opposite problem I had in my previous firing. In trying to get the kiln evened out I had to reduce much more that I normally do so much of the work is considerably darker than I would optimally like. Also this is the first firing in which I have planned for decals after the firing so there are a few new decaled pieces in this as well…..Here is some of the work from this firing.
