First bisque firing: succesful! Woohoo!
Griselda has no dials. Just five on/off switches. Makes for very uneven temperature distribution in the first hours of firing, and very sudden temperature jumps next to whichever element gets turned on. I was concerned about explosions because of that, but suspect that as long as all the greenware I put in is super-duper dry, it’ll be fine.
I’ll be glazing and firing again Sunday or Monday. Looking forward to it so very much.
