I do get a buzz from opening the kiln in the morning, after it’s cooled down from the previous afternoon/evening’s firing. Especially when trying something new.
Pleased to say that the pocket vases have formed beautifully. It was a bit of a faff getting the fibre paper out, but once that was done, the results are pretty impressive.
And apparently they’re not just for displaying flowers. My logical (as opposed to biological) sister in Germany said they’d be ideal for using as radiator humidifiers. Much more stylish then balancing a bowl of water on the radiator.
