Posted answers to Potters Quiz of the week 3, Sorry I was late, but yesterday was tiring with lots of driving and a 3am turn off of the glaze firing. At least it got me out of the house until today-no peeking.
Glaze firing started yesterday, kiln open on low at 5pm, 8pm closed with no plugs at high, 12am backed to 3/4, checked at 3am,up at 7 to check , ^6 nearly down-turned all to high, 7:20 am ^6 is down, kiln cut back to 30% turn off soon by noon.

Another day of the Adult Ceramics class. Regular teacher could not be there, so I had another art teacher as the teacher while I assisted. Demonstrated a 3lb bowl first then a 15lb with elbow open up. Lots of fun. Will keep the for door prizes.
Going to help out with the Adult Ceramics classes on Saturdays for the next 8 weeks at the HS I worked at.
Away from the house and shop to go hunting with my Dad for the next week or so. I try to spend as much time as I can with him.
I had a small article posted in Ceramics Monthly, Tips and Tools page, December 2016. NO big deal but then Whooo Hoo!
Dealing with bursitis right now. . should have known better than to cut in ceilings without breaks for painting rental. Oh well, no clay for a while.
New pig tail in, jumper, and holders replaced. Elements were within specs for firing. One set of fuses replaced, and everything put away. Now firing in 99F. heat.
Replacing elements this week, along with some element holders and bricks, One of the pigtails is also being replaced after a failed bisque. Hmmm one blow up also. First one in many years, humidity!
