A successful day was held on Saturday 27th July at Halswell Pottery Club where we fired the wood kiln. Shona and Chris light the fire at 7.30am; the weather forecast meant that is would be cold and not conducive to a good hot fire. This turned out to be true; no wind helping the flue draw didn't help, either.
Great camaraderie at the firing vents added to the excitement and spirit of the day. If you have any pyromaniac tendencies, come to the next wood firing.
We shut-up the kiln about 6.00pm and assembled on Monday morning to open up. The photo's are below.
