As many of you may have read here earlier, we built a wood kiln last summer that until just recently had not yet been fired. Last week, we finally got that first firing in and this past weekend it was unloaded. All told, there were five different clay bodies and 11 glazes. This is a more photos, less words post, so… without further word clutter. Here are the pics.

We reached just over 2300 degrees with cone 11 down on the top of kiln, cone 10 bent on the bottom
