The kiln was tended all night by Andrew, Paul and Stephen and was ready to start climbing in temperature this morning after the slow pre-heat they had controlled while warming themselves round a oil-drum brazier.

|We are firing with ash and pine wood|
The kiln is the "Skælskør Express" built by Robert Sanderson in 1999.
|Lunch in Marc Lancet's oribe bowls|
|Noodles by the kiln|
|All the ash wood has to be cut to size (Richard Saaby operating the saw)|
The kiln is now at 1280, cones are falling and we will be finished by dinner time
