Whew!!

SO very relieved and pleased that this firing was successful. I think I only lost 3 pieces to the inevitable firing mishaps: mostly soda blobs. That is some kind of record. What I did differently: not much, actually. Kept the damper pulled out during the soda application. Used less salt. Mixed up a different bucket of a glaze that performed poorly last time. So, w00t! Sometime-whiner I may be, but I know how to accept a blessing. I've got some grinding, pricing and packing to do in the warm sunshine.
