Firing in Seagrove

What do I think of when I fire a kiln? I think of the video above, the giant plant from Little Shop of Horrors saying "FEED ME SEYMOUR!"
 I did a firing with Anne Pärtna of Blue Hen Pottery yesterday down in Seagrove.Anne has a Bourry Box kiln, so it was a nice change of pace to fire something different from my own, and different from many of the other wood kilns in the Seagrove area.
We salted later in the evening and shut the little beast down a little after 10:00 pm. From the view through the bourry box, things looked really good! We'll see this week!

And you can come see for yourself next week at the Old Salem Pottery Fair on the Square!

That looks like a nice big firebox. Anxious to see the results.
