another firing. Cone ten flat in eight hours, forty five minutes.
One hour of soaking but we had to shut it down becaust the temp kept
climbing and the kiln was full of cone 6 glazes. great glazes
and although it was light the ash was beautiful. The entire surface
looked like a very light salting.

The students are "totally stoked" and will restack on sunday for
another firing.

Still wood firing in Alabama in the summer.
