Pete's pipes were all intact, no obvious disasters, time to get in and start handing out the pots.
Carefully lifting off their wads.
Even after a week the kiln and pots are surprisingly warm. It's not too comfortable in there.
But someone has to do it!!!!
I think everyone agreed it was a good firing, plenty of oohhs and arrrhhhs, bit like bonfire night watching fireworks burst in the sky.
The pots passed out along a human chain, occasionally the chain stopped as someone realised that they had their pot in their hands and a closer look was needed. There were some very tasty pots, only a few had welded themselves to the shelves and floor.
Here is a selection of some of my pots, cleaned up, the shell soaked off and the bits of wad removed.
