Hot Hot Heat

Well, due to some unexpected circumstances (like a sunny and breezy gorgeous day that demanded I be outside) this week’s Writing Critique will get served up on Sunday instead of Saturday.

Until then, I’ll let y’all enjoy a shot of me spraying soda into a kiln at Peter’s Valley this summer. The soda is dissolved in water and vaporizes when it hits the fire – melting onto the sides of pots and creating an amazing textured surface. Inside the hole I’m spraying into, the temperature is around 2300 degrees F!! Hence the huge gloves and the special UV sunglasses…the kiln is burning so hot, looking inside can actually damage your eyes.

Don’t I look badass?
