I was finally able to go to the studio this afternoon. It was only two and a half hour, but solid session without break. I did some finishing and loaded two kilns. One for bisque-firing and another for glaze-firing.
This is glaze-firing. I usually fire my work about three times, but sometimes five times until the colours become the way I like. I am still working on the large test chicken, but I like to see how the little chicken in this kiln comes out first.

Then, after dinner at home I loaded the third kiln of the day. This is our own kiln. We are going to do bisque-firing.

If you have noticed something on top of saucers in previous picture, and wonder what they are....

While we were loading the kiln in the garage, Pumpkin was curiously peeking inside the garage to see what we were doing. But when we finished and came out, she became happy and went back to the garden. Here she is! What a beautiful chicken!
