Ever since our first baby was born, my husband takes the first shift during my firings. He gets up early, lights the kiln, and gently stokes the front at about 200 degrees an hour. I try to sleep a little and take care of the child. And I will take over stoking after the kiddos are up. I like to set up the kiln so it's ready and as easy as possible for John. Firing XXXII tomorrow. First one with the new baby. Wish us luck! @jgeciglass

Sometimes (often) the reality of what pottery contains

Sometimes (often) the reality of what pottery contains is not so glamorous. Parenthood isn't exactly glamorous either. I noticed this composition this morning while I ate breakfast- yes, that is the Nose Frieda: The Snotsucker in a Josh Copus pot. Perfect, right? Chris Winterstein made the iron piece, which we love. @joshcopuspottery @birdlycircus
