Bisque firing: the movie!

video

You saw our plucky little bowl thrown, then trimmed, what happens to our hero next?

The potter here looks somewhat scruffy, I noticed.

Get a shave!

I am self-employed and find shaving a boring activity.
Admit it: you are jealous!
Betcha wish you could wear tiki shirts to work too.

My dear wife bought me a new Hawaiian shirt yesterday. How cool is that?

Your wife is worth gold, Gord.

Hey, Gary -- could you post the make and model of the kiln programmer box, please? I know someone who'd love to get one of those for Christmas.

You're going to get tired of questions and special requests at this rate ;-) At least console yourself with the thought that I, for one, amn't bothered by an unshaven potter.

Gordo The Geek said...

That she isn't Gary.

Hey, any idea what it costs each time you run the kiln?

gr said...

It costs a couple of bucks each time you fire the kiln. And with 200 dollars worth of stuff inside, that is peanuts!
John, I love my kiln, but a person should stay away from this by Paragon kilns, the largest maker in the US. I have had 2 by Skutt in Oregon and their products and customer service are superb.

Thanks, Gary -- I'll continue the research here in the UK. I like your arithmetic on the (electric) cost of a firing. This is all good stuff. :-)

that little 'bye' at the end was so cute Gary.

gr said...

It was for you, and the adoring public, dahling.
