I have fired the trusty Alpine twice this week , I made some face jugs and they just crack me up. I guess Im now a whisky face jug maker. I also had other pots in the kiln . I had made some Basket vases and also some of my slab platters where in both firings. I just really enjoy firing the Alpine. Its sort of easy to fire, get to reduction and sit back and let the kiln fire . When the kiln gets to cone 10 on the top I back off for a 1/2 hour and the firing is done.

I have been making pots and firing kilns. I glazed Friday and fired the Alpine Kiln Saturday and I have a bisque kiln going now. Im going to unload and load and fire to have new work for Praters Mill show October 8 & 9 next weekend.
I have started making some whisky jugs and I have eight that are in the kiln now. I actually started to make face jugs. I think my face jugs are different than the face jugs I have seen. I am going to use my ash glaze on them.
