Almost Ready

Here are a few pictures for those of you out there who like to keep up with what's happening around here. Today, Saturday, I'll be slipping all of these bisque pots with a white slip. It's what we affectionately call RJB. It stands for Randy Johnston Bisque. After I dab all of the slip that doesn't resist, I'll "line" all of the jars and cups with my alkaline ash glaze. Then's it will be stacking time. Mica Cain, a new resident at the Energy xChange, is on the payroll and is the only reason the kiln and I will be ready in time for the Labor Day Monday Firing! It will be my sixth anniversary and the 28th firing of the wood kiln !
