Race to the Finish

Wow. It was quite a finish to the twenty seventh firing, tonight. Courtney Martin Rocks!!! The Snow Creek Fire Team finished at a little before six p.m. with a race of comps (small thin pieces of wood) to heat a lagging bottom. With the small wood we were stoking almost continuously. What a hot one! Here's CM with her posse. It's not easy to stoke around a dog, not to mention two!
I can't thank Courtney enough. I'll be first in line to stoke her kiln next month. Well, I have to chink the kiln with mud, have a gin and tonic and hit the sack. Its been a long day. Tomorrow we head to the beach for a weekend wedding of friends. I'll be back on Monday to give a peek inside. Have a great weekend.
