It has been another good day today. Many thanks to Jim and Carl for doing a great job over last night and to Ed. one of our students for helping out side stoking for a good part of the day. The kiln has responded well and we now have cone 13 (1350 C) over at the front and cone 10 (1280 C) at the back. The chimney damper has now been closed a little to soak the kiln and increase the reduction for the first half of the night and will start to open it up again to push for the final temperature in the early hours with a view to finishing in the early afternoon tomorrow.
