turned on the kiln. it's been raining the past few days. my studio is slightly flooded. everything is damp. if I weren't such an idiot, I would wait to fire. instead, I will just take it slow.
nothing has exploded or otherwise set on fire yet.
I had to turn up the heat a lot earlier than I expected. (4:45)
things are good. I'm listening to Mike's fake indie band. I adore this kid. you should, too.
telecom's out. oh no how can we live without tv? anyway.
increased power to 2 at 7:30.
increased power to 3. I think I waited too long to increase it to 2.
I've decided I want someone to feel like the luckiest person in the world for having me, lounging around in my worn out jeans and shelf bra tank top.
starting to glow!
increased power to 4. telecom's back up. w00t. also, check out the progress on the sock yarn blanket:
everything is dandy. I'm taking an effing nap.
increased power to 5.
increased power to6.
it's been kind of moving back a little since 1.... it's actually 4:40. anyway! things are good. glowing from the inside. I still can make out details. all cones still upright.
I made a group for my army of chickens project. it's not so much a group so that people can join, but so that all of the pictures can be in one place with an easy url.
increased power to 7
increased power to 8
increased power to 9
um. all three of my cones are still standing. (6, 8, 10). I would have expected the 6 to bend by now.
looks like the telecom is down again.... not entirely sure, though.
the sun is up but the rain has not slowed down.
it looks like cone 8 tipped. I'm wondering if the cone 6 just didn't look like it tipped because it is too small for the holder. it would not be so great if all of a sudden the kiln increased so quickly to pass both cone 6 and cone 8 in one hour.
cone 10 is starting to tip.
