I have never experienced the luxury of an entire kiln firing where every piece WORKS! YAY! It is a big deal. Other artists may not have that much trouble firing; but I've had a glaze firing learning curve to put it kindly. In fact, I've found that it sometimes happens in waves - two or three firings in a row - where things are problematic for me. Each firing a new issue or problem. Frustrating.
This morning, before work, I emptied the thing and as I pulled out piece after piece; I was just super stoked - every one worked exactly how I wanted them to work - I don't know what I did right this time; but it's real good. Real Good.
I kiss the feet of the god SKUTT and PG&E.
