Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play

Tonight I loaded another bisque before teaching class. I did a pretty good job of packing it tight… but unfortunately, a few pieces didn’t fit in! Looks like I’ll be doing another bisque kiln in another week or so… which means I need to make some more pieces before then!!!

Kiln Layer #1 – flower pots, tumblers & spoons.

Kiln Layer #2 – ovals, mugs, bowls & spoons.

Kiln Layer #3 – vases, spoons, bowls, mugs & spoons.

Kiln Layer #4 – mugs, spoons, flower pot water trays, bowls & vases.

And you know me… pack it as tight and as full as possible. All the way to the top!!!

Hi Gary! That’s a lot! How many pieces do you typically get in to bisque? I just started loading my own kiln this past fall. By the looks of your layers, I’m not getting enough pieces in. Looks great!
