we have ignition...

got up early to light the lil hotbox this morning so tank number 1 is expired now, it had enough gas to warm up the kiln so it did its job...yey!! well 7.30 am is early for me, i'm more of a night owl..
delivery should be mid morning, so yip here we go for a reasonably long day, it really depends on the weather and if the tanks freeze up early,, i think my last firing went well into the night and i have been known to nurse it at 2am waiting for the cones to drop, so hopefully the sun will shine and we'll get some heat into the day...and a good start ..


  1. that is pretty cool! How high are you going?

  2. hey jess, cone 9...and getting closer now...
