Kiln #9

Just about dialled in now: everything was right 2 firings ago,but I foolishly stood some catchers on ceramic fibre bases in kiln #7,forgetting that spilled glaze eats fibre,resulting in 4 pots stuck together,then [being smart] stood one pot/catcher on another larger catcher [kiln #8],forgetting that the 2nd one was high-fired,so when the first one shrank,it toppled over [3 pots attached]. Peering into #10 [currently under way] I noticed that the kiln prop bearing the cones has fallen over,so we are back to the inscrutable pyrometer and inspired guesswork method. Never a dull moment.
