There are a lot of pots in this chamber that could be pretty juicy if all goes well.
This is the back two shelves of the wood chamber. If you recall from my previous firing, this chamber was pretty awful. So I’m going into new territory with it this time. I’ve loaded two extra large handbuilt pieces and it is way more open than anything I’ve ever been around. I don’t know how it will respond. My theory is it can’t be worse than the last one! I still have the front stack to load tomorrow.
I’m changing the firing schedule, too. Up until now I’ve begun at midnight with the idea that two chambers might take 20 hours or more. But after 5 firings, the average length is more like 17 hours. So I plan to preheat Tuesday night and then begin for real around 5 AM Wednesday.
I don’t think I’ve mentioned it yet, but I’m teaching a workshop at LibertyTown this weekend and there is still a space or two available for the hands-on part and anyone can come to the demos (for a small fee). Call LibertyTown for details.
