The weather changed the day before the firing from 24 plus to 15-16 so quite a drop,but it was dry.
We had two new glazes, Heavenly white and Turqmanistan along with all the other glazes they had to be remixed and sieved quite a task, but worth the effort.
We had a few explosions, my pots obviously didn’t have enough grog in them to stand the shock horror of being rapidly warmed up.Only mine exploded sadly it was the ones made for guests to glaze and fire.
There wern’t so many combatants this year so it was a little less manic. I had invited Lis Watkins along to sketch the scene quite a hard task with people darting everywhere in and out.I think she did a remarkable job.
The day went oh so quickly, the pizza oven was in full swing and the food was generally gorgeous, thanks to everyone who contributed .
Farewell Raku until next year.
