Time lapse of @kristeneasters and @t.glosby working the kiln on the second overnight.
We finished the firing last night at the very reasonable time of 9:30pm.
It was one of the smoothest burns to date and after 12 years and almost 50 firings… we are really starting the get things figured out?
Thanks to the rest of the crew. @gillandotypottery @nicklistoceramics @juliecantwellceramics and of course my awesome wife @carolinaflowers_ for helping to make it happen.

The wood game is strong right now.
I built a bunch of new pallet ricks for the tractor that are all uniform, standardized and totally solid.
It’s the realization of a long term dream to have a system in place like this for my wood kiln complex.
We still store all the side stoke wood and 2nd and 3rd chamber box length wood under the kiln shed, but all the split cord wood for the main fire boxes can be stored away from the kilns… which is amazing because it makes the kilns feel waaayyy less crowded and messy.

White slip over dark clay.
We are building a gallery in preparation for our grand opening event at the land July 20-21.
Check out flowersandclay.com for details.
It’s been 12 years in the making.
We just got this load of black bricks from our friends at Taylor Clay for the gallery project.
They should really make the white slip pots pop!!!
