Friendly Fire

I arrived at Tel Hai on Tuesday to find the salt kiln still awaiting firing - too long to my mind [over 3 weeks] so decided to fire it with some students [Ofri stoking salt in bottom picture]. The firing went well-9hrs,4 1/2 kg salt,cone 10 would have fallen if the students had put it in. Ofri sent me some pictures from the opening - some shot cups I had in the kiln came out better than the last few firings at Sydney's [as I suspected] -now I have to work out what's happening. The silicon carbide kiln shelves look a bit frothy,and seem to have dripped on pots,but students seem happy with results.
