I'll take that as a sign that you are having a good day. I presume it's a holiday weekend in the States as well?

redhot peephole plug? i thought for a moment it was a side effect of your treatment, i am so glad it isn't it does sound rather nasty. The reality is so much nicer

results wont' be any of my stuff, of course, since I'm not allowed to play in clay till treatment is done. If there is any good student stuff (rare) I'll get a pic.

no, the firing was HORRIBLE. About noon, the safety started shutting the kiln off because it was too hot in the studio. It was over 60 outside, and blazing hot inside, even with a big fan on. This was the first warm day trying to fire with the new safety system. It shut off 27 times. *27* I finally gave up when the cone 9 was 3/4 bent, because it was not going to get to cone 10. There were only a couple 10 pieces in there so, hopefully they were near the top. I left many messages for the teacher to get in touch with maintenance about this.

I am sooooooooo unhappy.

I think the colour problem is really with my camera phone. It's crap. And started to die this weekend. ARGH!!

But *hugs* to everyone for their support.

it was great - when they came to a firing last semester to see what we were complaining about, they FREAKED when they saw flame coming out the top of the kiln. They had everything set up like it was a furnace.

I would shut off the safety, but it's tied directly to the univ. PD. If I shut it off, I'm likely to get arrested.

if it isn't all closed off for the supposed remodel and whatever, I'll show you the studio, such as it is, when you come up.
