On Thursday, with the help of one of the techs, Bernie, we fired a glaze test in the new raku kiln he built – firing to cone 6 in just a few hours. Both the kiln and the tests worked well.
Then it was Pizza Day on Friday! I made the sauce, Greg Daley made his famous crust, Janet the cakes and the students provided the rest. The woodstove pizza oven is in the kiln courtyard, designed by Allan Watt, former head of program. It was sunny and warm (this is winter?) and we enjoyed the meal outdoors.
