This Could Be The Last Time
Possibly the last firing of my gas kiln- 24 years of loyal service,around 800 firings to cone 9,the basis of my professional life as a potter. Not that the new kiln is here [still stuck in customs],so I'm not taking the old one out just yet. A good firing,with good reduction and even temperature,partly because of the contents- 4 large sinks and refires of Meir's pots from the last anagama,so the stack was quite loose.
The pictures show 2 of Meir's beautiful teapots before and after refiring.
We have been lurching from Holiday to Shabbat seemingly for as long as I can remember,but this comes to an end this evening/tomorrow with Simchat Torah, usually a riotous affair in Tsfat- so Happy Simchat Torah- I'm off for a last sit in my Succah...
