Here’s a quick glimpse into the kiln as I loaded layer by layer last night. It’s a smaller electric kiln, so there’s not a lot of room. And yet I tried my best to squeeze a good amount of pieces in. And while I still LOVE soda-firing and the large percentage of my work is soda-fired… I must admit that it’s kind of fun to glaze & load a kiln in a couple hours – then close the lid, press the button and go home for the night. A quick kiln firing and we have some fun pop-of-color mugs to add to Saturday’s Holiday Home Show!!!

Kiln Layer #1 – mugs & cups

Kiln Layer #2 – a small bowl and a lot of holiday stars… replenishing the inventory!

Kiln Layer #3 – mugs & cups & bowls… oh my

Kiln Layer #4 – three larger mugs & some more bowls

Kiln Layer #4.5 – a partial layer with some more bowls
