As I type I am firing the first load in the new studio. Thought I would share a pic of the creative loading! This is a bisque firing, so it is the lower temperature that I fire to. It is used to burn out any moisture in the clay and harden it so that it can be glazed and refired (the final firing).
I managed to work in the studio for most of the day with some creative placement of fans to vent out the chemically smell. It wasn't until late this afternoon that I finally had to abandon ship and leave the studio when it became too warm to continue working in the same room.
