Firing at the stoke holes started around 9am Saturday, and all the helpers proceeded to the top of the kiln.
Thanks to all the enthusiastic young people from GUI and potters from Steven’s class, the firing process went rather smoothly. The fourth and final stoke hole was opened around 4pm. The firing at ended earlier than scheduled at 6:00pm. There was even time for some to have photo breaks and Tia could even do a quick sketch. You can see Tia’s beautiful sketch here.
What is a firing without a barbeque? So the evening ended with a delicious BBQ spread prepared by Mrs Tan, Ati and Amy, as well as finger food from our guests and potters.
A big thank you to all who sacrificed their National Day weekend to help out and take part in, or drop by at our dragon kiln wood-firing! We would like to specially thank Song Hui, Jolyn, Jimmy, Kim, Kim Han, Harish, Chia Chia, Andy, Diane, Yen Pyng, and Debra from GUI; Steven, Hong Seng and Xiao Ling!
The results of the firing will be seen only when the kiln is opened and the pots and clay pieces unpacked on 22nd August.
