If you want to pick THE BEST people to do a wood fire with, these are two that should be on the list! My buddies Susan and Kristen were so great to be with this weekend! We had the very smoothest firing I have ever participated in. Everyone worked so well together, what a team. Marsha and David are missing from this pic, but I'll have more later. The kiln fired evenly and steadily without any stalls like we have had in the past, the weather was glorious, and all of us, although all very different, worked well together and had a lot of laughs all day. We loaded Saturday and started firing Sunday morning around 7am. Finished up last night around 10pm. Good days work!
Susan has a huge sculpture in this firing, lots of bowls, mugs and vases from the rest of us.
and the food.......... I love the people I hang with. They love good food and there is always lots of it. Kristen made a vegetarian chili, that was amazing with guacamole and cheddar cheese, yum! David brought the most unbelievable spring rolls I have ever had. Susan baked pumpkin pies. Marsha and I took the easy way out and stopped off at Weaver St. I brought chocolate croissants for breakfast and Weaver Streets most yummy homemade chipoltle pimento cheese and Marsha got us a chocolate raspberry cake and some snacks for late night munching. Let me tell you, that cake got me through the night!!!! We had lots of tea and fruits and I pretty much ate all day. This was a great team and I am so happy to have had the chance to fire with everyone. Fingers crossed, we unload on Wednesday! More pics later, I gotta get my wrecked house back in order and load my own kiln today. I have to get in three more firings before Dec 1.
