    "You can get anything thing you want as long as its turkey today." OK faux turkey for you.

    Thanksgiving is also my favorite holiday not only because of the food, family and friends but also because its the least stressful holiday.

I am off until Monday for Thanksgiving. Loaded my 16CF with all the thrown items to be bisq'ed. Threw the breaker- no power! Neighbors pole barn runs off my transformer, they shut it off this morning so he could unprade his power. It is raining, so I guess I will post in the forums all day!

    Any glaze books on what each material is and used for? IE: copper is for oranges, yellows, blues and reacts like x,y,z in these conditions....

Fired a class load last week. Had a larger student sculpture that had been drying for weeks. Had a slow bisque fire program. Everything was going well, until the kiln got around 1000 F. Felt steam coming out of the peep... It was like the engine room scene from Titanic. FULL STOP!!!

    Yep, it survived. After shutting off the kiln, I kept checking the peep for moisture. When none was detectable, I started it back up. No issues. There were no spots over 1/2" thick.

    Good job on the steam check. I always use the hand at the peep hole to check for moisture during bisque, and glaze firings.

    When Mark and Old Lady retire from potting, they should do a double act.
