It never ceases to amaze and excite me when it is time to open up the kiln after a glaze firing. You just never know for sure what you will discover when you crack open that slightly warm and heavy lid and take your first peek inside.

Regardless of the number of times I have done it, the thrill is always there, and especially now as it has been so long since I have worked with clay. Even when you have finished forming the piece and bisque fired it, you still do not really know what it will look like until that glaze firing, that final passing through the flame.
