I'm happy to say I was able to spend the whole day (meaning 10 to 3) in the studio. The kiln was cooling from a bisque fire so it was nice and toasty warm. The weather was beautiful so every time I looked up from my wheel I could see the sun shining in. I was able to throw a few things and by the time I tucked the girls in to bed at night I was able to go back and trim them. I had a few minutes after the girls got home from school to unload the cooled kiln. My two casserole dishes exploded. I have no idea why. The rest of the things were ok. Today's couple hours in the studio will be spent glazing.
