If it ain't crack I've lovin' it's some other kind of powder- the powder blues. It still is no reason to send me to Hell although I am quite certain that is where all my good friends will be residing. Halos, wings and open toed sandals aren't suitable attire for a wood fire crew. For that matter Harp music would only put the entire gang to sleep. Now, if we're talking Harp lager post firing now we're on to something. Our wood kiln crew hasn't been listening to music of late. Seems people are more engaged with fellow stokers than listening to tunes. There will be tunes when I fire it solo. I like blues, rock n roll, hotchie koo and what I call driving music. Crank up Steppinwolf's Born to Wild and watch the cones go down.
Here is a detail of some brush work on a shino crack vase.
|I added a hand built addition to these vases since they were falling like bowling pins in the wood kiln.|
|Sometimes the powder blues go green( rutile).|
