Loading

Autumn has arrived with this loading. Warm sunny days followed by crisp evenings. Combines in the fields and geese in the air. Our forest consists of walnuts, which unceremoniously drop their leaves, lindens, and lots of soon-to-be vibrantly lovely maples. One of the early birds in the background of this pic is turning yellow already.

Krista is joining us for this firing.


Chuckles and Magpie are, as always, on the entertainment team.

We will finish loading tomorrow evening, and, after a night of candling, we are planning a three-day firing. Stay tuned for all of the excitement!
