I unpacked the kiln this afternoon and for a while I thought I was going to need a bigger hammer or in this case, mallet!
Why you ask? Well I fired two of my three teapots with the lids on and one with the lid separately and my pottery friends will now know why I needed a mallet..
yes that is right, a tiny little bit of glaze was on the underside of the lid and that is all it takes for a lid to stick!
You might also notice that there are a lot of shelf props in this firing.. a little trick to get the firing even when you don't have enough pots to make a tight pack...
