The Burners Are On...

Okay, the kiln is full.  On Monday evening, the door was bricked up and the burners (pilots) were started.  The pilots will warmed the kiln until this morning and I got up early to start the firing.  The kiln warmed-up to about 400 degrees.

I spent the whole day working on the firing.  Now, I need to allow it to cool for three days.  We will take pictures when we go to unload.

This is a picture of one of the pilots being lit.      Have a great day!  David
