Here's a lopsided photo of yesterdays Cone 04 under glaze tests. All the under glazes are Amoco velvets or Lug. I have no idea why a right side up photo, suddenly gets turned sideways when I post it to blog spot. Anyone know how to correct this? There doesn't seem to be any option once it's uploaded to turn it. :-(
This morning I realized that the solution to my not finding any metal to build a wind shield the other day, might be to use some of my advancer shelves instead - at least until I can find a metal fabricating place to cut me some pieces. So this afternoon, I'm going to turn that little Olympic kiln on and see how it's working. I drilled out the orifices to get the burners working with natural gas, so I'm hoping all be OK. now that it's on natural gas. If it is, I'm going to load it and try to fire tomorrow if the weather permits.
I think I'm also going to leave these under glaze test tiles in situ and re-fire them to Cone 03 tomorrow. Replacement parts for the Olympic cone 10 test kiln have yet to arrive, so I'm going to forget about being green for another day and fire the kiln again with only one shelf of test tiles. It's time to get on with making some pots.
Since I want to get to the studio now, and make the most of the day, dinner is going to be easy, comforting and mundane - hot dogs and beans.
