I did 4 horse hair firings this past Saturday. I started the kiln up at 7:00 and was through by 10:30 and managed to beat this 90+ degrees heat we have had here lately. I fired 8 pots and 6 of them came out real good. The other 2 had cracks so they were discarded. I have placed pictures of two of them with this post.
Also I will be at the Dublin\Laurens Farmers Market this Saturday July 1st from 8 AM until 2 PM.

Wow, it has been awhile since the last post. Since I got my wheel fixed back in April I have been concentrating on making pots for raku and horse hair firing. I finally got enough pots made to do a firing and last Saturday I fired 22 pots. I started at 7:30 and quit around 2:30 doing 7 firings. I've included pictures of 4 of the pots tha I fired.
The Carved Horse Hair Vase is Not For Sale.
The other Horse Hair Vase is $40.
The 2 raku vases are $30 each.
I will have a booth this Saturday at the Grand Opening of the Dublin/Laurens Famers Market. The hours are 8:00 until 2:00. There will be live entertainment and food vendors, other artist and oh yes, some local produce.
