Long day

This morning I went and visited Tim Barnwell to get some pots shot. He's got quite the set up. Anyway. I got seventeen pots shot in 45 minutes, all digital. I'll share some tomorrow after I pick them up. I finished up some decorating and then started loading the kiln around 6pm. It took me about 3 1/2 hours to load all of the pots and brick up the door. I'm really glad to be done. I'll be up early to light the second burner. I hope it's a good one.

Good luck with the firing. I always look forward to checking out your work.

Hey Kyle,
Nice pots... I was wondering what Mr. Barnwell uses to prop up your plate for photographing?

Cloth covered brick, duct taped to the plate for regular plates. This larger platter had a sand filled small bucket taped to the back of it. I can't stand plate stands in photographs. This works great. Thanks for checking out the blog!
