Unloading Shanes Anangama

We loaded and fired Shane Mickey's kiln last weekend and unloaded on Thursday, a lot of pots.
Will Baker and Joy Tanner helped to finish off the kiln on Sunday night, I was exhausted by 10 oclock Sunday night, they stayed till about 1 30 am to turn cone 12 down. This kiln fired so much more differently than the single chambered wood burner I had.
Shane put about 50 pound of salt into the fire box starting at about cone 8. I was very pleased with the work I pulled out, it had a lot of the orange peel that I have always loved. I got some wonderful colors that I had on several pieces and they came out nicely. I'll have them in the next blog.
