The Lady Kiln

Thirty ladies, their blankets and babies going in the kiln at 1280 degrees!!!!

You can see there is some kind of excitement going on

not that they are frightened……let’s say just a little bit in “disorder”

and in fact they ought to be ……

the fork lift is approaching……

the fork lift with Marianne contolling every move, so in reality nothing to fear but still quite scary

all up in the air and in this brittle state they are in, every sharp movement could mean the end

but Marianne puts them down soft and smooth and calm is reigning again

now for 24 hourse they will stay here, in the purgatory at 1280 degrees, no guilt could ever withstand

IMG_8424

they fit all in and we close and fire, until….

until the next morning…….to open the kiln and see

all seems ok, but….

but no….something terrible happened during the night

a lady in pieces….

scattered in midst of the babies

Well, two ladies litterally exploded (who knows what their guilt was) but all the others are fine!!

where they can breathe fresh air again

and enjoy life.
