My Wood Firing Was FANTASTIC!!!

Last week I was able to wood fire the pieces I had been working on with the 25 lb bag of Lambert Wood Fire Clay.
I had thrown and bisque fired a platter, 4 desert plates, a coffee pot with four mugs and a tumbler, a teapot and two tea cups plus a small bowl with the left over clay scraps:>) Waste not, want not!
The first trip to Justin Lambert's pottery studio (Live Oak Pottery) in Jupiter, was to glaze the insides of the pots. The next trip was to spend seven hours feeding wood into the Anagama Kiln. A week later we all met to unload the kiln. What a happy dance I did when I saw my pottery!!
Now I am hooked on the rosy flashing and wonderful effects of the ash on my pots. Do you think my homeowners association would let me build a wood firing kiln on my patio? ♥♥♥
