Egle Paksyte (Guldagergaard's woodfire technician) and Nina Hole have work in the kiln too. They are firing now (13.30) as I started the firing at 6am. When I left it half an hour ago it was at 1100 degrees C. We will be going to just over 1300C.
There is a bitterly cold wind which makes it feel colder than it is: plus 1 or 2 degrees centigrade.
