I was delighted to take part of the Ottawa Guild of Potters' Great Bowls of Fire. This is an annual event raising funds for the Ottawa Food Bank. I was one of the bowl markers and helped a bit of the set up. My bowls are the dark blue ones at the bottom of the picture.

I've been told pots can explode in the kiln if they are not bone dry....guess I didn't believe it and had to try it myself.....this is what'd happened when I opened up the kiln yesterday....exploded pots. Good that there were only 3 of them. I even preheated the kiln for an hour but then it still wasn't good enough. I guess I really should rush the whole process like my husband always tells me. Well, I'd learnt my lesson the hard way! :(
