This morning I woke up to snow, we had a good three or four inches of snow which in itself is lovely, but I had packed the kiln yesterday and started a bisque firing.
I manually fire my kiln and so for a bisque firing I leave it on 5% power overnight in order to have a lovely slow temperature rise, which removes any traces of moisture left in the work. Some of the work I put into the kiln yesterday wasn’t completely dry so I turned the kiln on at 4 pm and hoped that the forecast snow didn’t arrive.
Harry the dog is always with me and he tore a round and around in circles like a puppy trying to get me to play with him. I threw a couple of snowballs at him and he wasn’t impressed that the balls disintegrated in his mouth.
The parrots came down for an easy meal of seeds. I don’t feed the birds regularly as I don’t want them to become dependent on me for food but they know that a meal is generally in the offing when the duck comes up to the house.
