This weekend I was in upper NY State in the 100 degree heat with friends firing a wood kiln. The farm is called Garry's Fat Camp and the kiln The Amish Rocket. Guaranteed to loose 10 lbs in a weekend of stoking a wood kiln in this weather. So you can see some of the friends potteries I visited this weekend between shifts. Started Friday night with the rat family Ronnie and Hester Meyers. 50 years married!!! Visited Kathy Gullo the Queen of Overstatement http://katherinegullo.com. CRASHED after the firing at Marineland with Marv Bjurlin and his bride Tina in Fredonia, NY. http://bjurlinceramics.com/. Had a red neck weenie cooked by friend Jim Reno who has a pottery near by with his bride Pat. Normie Wheeler was down from the north country to lend a helping hand. Lots of good people, good times, good food and good pots fired. We had a good hot Cone 13 so a over the top macho firing it was.
