Pyromaniac Corner

From the salt firing- burner and salt-port,flames from a frisky chimney.The firing went well- 2-3 hours to load the kiln,9 to fire and salt.This time,inspired by Ayelet [who worked with Mikki Schloessingk in England a few years ago] we got down to 5 1/2 kilos of salt [last firing-7 1/2,previous firings 10-12 kilos]. Also,on a whim,fed the kiln a small quantity of wood [small branches,thin splits],which led to dramatic flames from the stack-whether it left a mark on the pots we shall see in an hour or so when we all meet again to open and unload.
