I am very impatiently waiting for my kiln to cool. I'm not very good at this and mostly end up juggling steaming hot pots in my gloved hands, so impatient am I to see them. I never get over the excitement and anticipation (and anxiety) of opening up a kiln, no matter how many times I do it. But this firing I am forcing myself to wait until its stone cold - and its killing me!! I've been having a curious problem with one of my trusty glazes and this is an experiment to try and narrow down the cause. I've been prowling around the house and studio like a restless tiger all day, sitting on my hands, gardening like a woman possessed as I try to distract myself from the unbearable temptation of taking a peek! Just one quick peek!! But as torturous as it is, I'm kind of enjoying the challenge!
