Got most of my list done, and now I am just waiting for the cones to fall. This is that rare firing that I am excited about every single piece in it; Tuesday can hardly come fast enough for me.
I have the oval platters I made with the texture roller in there; the soup tureens; the mugs with my new glazing scheme; some fun striped salt & pepper shakers, an order of cat urns, and one of plates, as well as various mugs, bowls, and butter dishes.
The last hour of the firing - the one between nine-going and eleven-soft - is difficult for me, because I am tired and I want to be done. I know that if I turn it off now, things will be fine. All my glazes will flux at nine, and be fine. But if I want to get anything amazing out of this load, I have to hold on until I see eleven start to go.
