With great apprehension, I opened her up, and here's what I saw.
Success! My pots were bisqued, and none of them exploded. I was so excited I forgot to take pictures of all the shelves before I unloaded them all. I did get a shot of the last level.
I set them all on metal shelves to await glazing.
I have a lot of wall pots, mugs, and my kiln goddess.
I also have some test tiles (in the bowl on the left), and a bunch of pumpkins and pieces of pie (in the other bowl - I'll explain about the pie later).
I also have some stamps and molds I made.
Here's the set up after I unloaded, and before I organized and cleaned up.
I spent the rest of the day making glazes. Seriously. The rest of the day. It took me more than an hour (and more than 2 hours for two of them) for each glaze to add the water and get it through the sieve. So now that I am through the first bisque, I can move on to worrying about whether I mixed the glaze properly, whether it will stay on the pots, whether the kiln will fire the glaze well...
