I had an order for 13 of these 6 lb jars so I fired 16 and was lucky that they all came out well.

Four pitchers with detail. I am beginning to get these sweet drips fairly often with this kiln. I have fired it 73 times since building it in 1999 and the glaze has built up enough that they are happening a lot.
