Day 11, Clean Up, Unload Kilns, Auction, Alleghany Meadows, Make, Use, Look, Think

Every piece of equipment must be washed clean, the wheels, stools, tables are moved outside and the floor is hosed down.

We unloaded the reduction kiln which was a great firing.  The salt – not so great.  The kiln went into reduction too early and thus the clay was reduced which affected the glazes.  Clay bodies were gray with pitted and crawled glazes.  The worst were the celadon glazes.

That is the way it is with ceramics.  Just move on and make some more pieces.

Auction was a lot of fun.  Alleghany donated this wonderful Flora set.
