I baked a Tom Gray pizza this afternoon while my kiln was in reduction. I was preheating the oven, checking it's temperature and running downstairs to check the temp on my kiln's pyrometer. Just a bit confusing! Speaking of confusing, I forgot to divide the dough, rolled it out and realized it was a bit thick on the ends. I think the crust ended up being about 3" tall :) Remember a few blogs ago when I mentioned I needed a wife?! or maybe I just need to get Gerry and Wesley cooking classes for Christmas. Sadly, neither of them are very interested in cooking so if we get fed, it's up to me.
I started firing at 7:30 am and finished up at 7:30 this evening. I had a little stall late in the day and then I soaked for thirty minutes at the end. ^10 in the middle went down fine and just on time, but the top shelf only had a bent ^10, not too bad, there were just a couple of trays on the very top, so no great loss if they didn't get to temp. Hopefully the full moon tonight will be a good omen and there will be some nice pots to clean tomorrow. Hope so, I need them for Saturday's sale.
My moral support, Callie and Tyler. They lay upstairs where the heat rises from the kiln, I put a quilt down for them and they stayed there all day. So cute!
