The First Wood Firing: Mar 31

Tube (Anagama Part) got cone 12 down (over 2300F) in the evening, and we pulled out several pots from Tube. Wood ash on pots looked shiny green.

Then we started stoking wood for Glaze Chamber and Salt Chamber. At 11:20PM stop stoking for Tube.

Around 12AM stop stoking for Glaze Chamber.

When Salt Chamber got Cone 7 for the coolest spot, we stoked salt (about 12 lb) into the chamber. At 1:20AM, we completed firing.

It was 43 hours firing (except 12 hours preheating).

Unloading will be the next week and we will announce more detail very soon.

Thanks for your cooperation and help.
