Packing the kiln ready to fire some new lines in the pottery.
Lemon squeezers with their integral jugs, and soap dishes to try out.
Pyrometric cones balanced on the kiln stilts. Although the temperature is read through a pyrometer, we still use the cones to see which parts of the kiln are the hottest and coolest.
We use 2 cones - one designed to bend at 1,000C and the other at the high temperature of 1280C when the kiln is switched off.
