Love is hard!
I had decided I was going to fall in love with my gas kiln and lay low on the wood kiln. Wood firing is hard. Love is hard. I wanted to live life easier and learn to enjoy my gas kiln and stop this hard luvin'! Put a few pots in Stoner's train kiln last weekend and hot damn they melt my heart and get the ole goat all excited about tossing sticks again. I wanted to leave this demanding woman. I wanted someone easy and more laid back. Truth is she is the best. I've coached a bunch of younger pyromaniacs that I am sure will fire the kiln when I am too old to stoke. I will sit in a LazyBoy with a bourbon in hand, point and grunt. Here are some pots from Stoner's train kiln. Trains rule!!! You get the surface without the environmental impact of 4 or 5 days firing. Thanks Stoner for picking me up at the side of the road and thanks Mr.K for these photos. I will get to see the pots in the flesh at Ash and Barrel this weekend. I'm stoked to see my buds, the pots, drink a Fairweather Brewski and be with y'all. Best, T Fallen Lover.
