A Good Fit

I went over to Courtney Martin's kiln and helped her load the kiln yesterday. It's almost the same size as my kiln, just not as tall and the footprint of the shelves is 48" x 36" whereas my kiln is 48" x 48". And like most kilns it ate a lot of pots! I found it interesting how pots fit together in the kiln and how I am aware of the various shapes that I make. So when Courtney was loading her kiln and trying to find the right pot for the right spot, it took us a while to get a sense of how these pots would fit together. But it didn't take her long to get to stacking. It's a 3 dimensional jigsaw puzzle!
Today we fire!

(I guess CM is over there stoking already. I'd better get over there and get to work! ;-) Have a good Friday!
