From the maiden voyage

Here are some of the pots from the first firing. Although we held at Cone 11 for 5 hours I think we need to get the temperature higher. Time melted the cones but we need to crank up the temp a little bit more as our glazes were a tad on the soft matt side which means they need more temp to get them really wet looking. Thankfully with this kiln getting more temp is the easy part. Holding it back was the hard part. It will only get better with each firing.

I can't believe that it took you so long to get back to wood....but I enjoyed the journey. It was a definite learning curve.
