satd'y big pot, big kiln, big pop...
So saturday was quite eventful, the kiln fired up nicely and a good way to use up some of the lower gas bottles as the earthenware firing didn't take up much gas pressure at all.. I did however have a wee tiny accident with a gas line in the studio which involved flamage from the wand and me getting a tad excited and dropping the wand on the floor which proceeded to ignite a 1meter pool of gas around my feet with a lovely pop!! It was all over in a couple of seconds, I shut off the tank and just stood there in shock... all over and nobody hurt but the line needs a safety shut off not a release valve in it..
Anyhoo here's a sample off the pot I switched over to the heat gun after the gas drama... :))
