New pots from the June firing
This is pretty much what today looked like in the woods around the green swamp. Gardening and yard work has kept us busy this summer, and I am so happy with my front yard flower and herb garden. Paul filled the two chamber kiln by himself and firing was a family deal in June. The kiln is at our neighbors, and we are fortunate to have the opportunity to fire in it while we continue to build our own. One chamber is for salt glaze and the other , the first chamber is just stoneware. In order to fill it faster , Paul made some large planters to fill the stoneware chamber. I acquired a couple with small cracks and have been cruising the green house end of season sales to fill them.
I have mixed more colors into the front garden this year, because I fell in love with these petunias.
