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

Yesterday was my soda kiln firing day. A long day of playing with FIRE!!! So much “fun” firing with my fingers crossed as I was missing the top cone pack… guessing & hoping for the beast. The firing seemed fairly smooth all day, so I’m pretty pleased so far. Always exciting when the kiln gets to the top temperatures and you introduce the soda mixture into the fire boxes. Flames come shooting out every crack & crevice. So beautiful. So dangerous. Definitely not for the pyrophobics out there!!!
