We just fired a large bisque containing the three new pieces I recently made as well as a large amount of Fran’s work. One of my pieces didn’t fit into the kiln so it was fired in a smaller kiln. Everything came out fine - sometimes, even though the pieces are dry and one fires correctly and slowly, the unexpected crack or explosion takes place. But everything came out fine (hooray). Here is a picture of how odd the pieces looked in the kiln, bunched up against each other. Considering that these pieces are meant to be seen frontally, these pieces look very strange when seen from this side angle.
