As you may recall, I wrassled the demon Crudebake in the form of high winds in my first effort to fire off this load. The demon won the battle - I aborted the firing - but lost the war. With the kiln half out, everything looks great (with a few expected warps & cracks.)
Particularly pleasing to me, the large things seem to have suffered no losses so far.
I can't jinx it once it's already fired, right?
