Another Kiln

Our good neighbour Batya over the road is glaze-firing her electric kiln for the first time as we speak. Applying the same logic as the recent Noah/dove story,I'm assuming that if I don't hear from her,everything is going well. Not only is it the first firing of what used to be Ruth Shiffrin's kiln for [I think] 30-odd years,it's also Batya's first solo glaze firing ever. She's aiming for 1200 degrees- the low end of the stoneware range,cone 5/6- and was displaying appropriate signs of anticipation and excitement when we got the kiln started around one o'clock this afternoon.
