Svend is packing the new kiln ; the firing is scheduled for this coming week end. The kiln floor which is covered with sand got very damp so Svend will start a very slow fire on Thursday, keeping the temperature to around 100C for 24 hours to prevent the pots from exploding.
The plan is to fire for 72 hours this time, but things may well change.
Sadly, I (Brigitte) will miss the first firing but I will be around for the opening so there may be photos of the pots coming out of the kiln. Watch this space …!
Bjorn, Svend’s son, took the beautiful photos below.
