This is the first of the army of persimmon women which came from the last firing which took 5 days to fire instead of the usual 10 hours. The burners were so clogged that the pilot light refused to stay lit more than a few minutes. Finally it was hot enough to hold the heat in and continue to climb in temperature. So after the firing, we took the burners off and sent them to the refurbisher. About 3 in the morning, I thought a good electric firing might just be the new thing. Push a button and walk away. You know I love it all....except when I don't!
Getting ready to load the kiln. Several girls are waiting. Getting her in the kiln was a bit of a challenge. The posts are looking pretty salted about now. You can see the beginnings of my army of Persimmon Women! Remember how I was addicted to persimmons? Well, I became so allergic to them that I ended up in the hospital, but that is a story for another day. Now I am obsessing over persimmons in a different way.... This is before the door goes up brick by brick for 2 rows. I was so excited to have a beautiful day in the sun for being outside.

I'll be joining in with the eccentrics of Boulder, talking about our passions .
Class working on making and pouring molds of our personal symbols. After cleaning the molds we started our series of head cups that represent 3 childhood memories. All these pieces will be salt fired. All this fun takes place at the Boulder Potters Guild. A shipment of boats await their turn in the oven.
