I had a good firing. A little uneven top to bottom but not bad for the first time in this kiln. Here is a time lapse of the unload.Its nice to pull work from a soda kiln once again. I have been firing gas and electric since November of 2012 while I tore down and rebuilt the Carbondale Clay Centers soda kiln. Which I might add is a daunting task alone in the Colorado winter. Anyway, I am glad to have the soda surfaces back in my work. I am also excited to have added ta few new glazes to my palette for this firing.
A special thanks to my friends the The Spitfire Tumbleweeds for letting me use their music. If you like them you can purchase their music online at

So here is a short clip of me wadding pots and putting in the bottom shelf. This is the first soda firing I’ve done at Arrowmont. So far the kiln has been pretty easy to fire and adjust. I will be unloading on Wednesday and will do another video of the unloading. I am going to try to shoot a good number of the pots, if they turn out, before the A.I.R. open studios and post them before…but we will see how time is looking then.
