This little note was left for me by Danni the Studio Technician at Northern Beaches TAFE. She is our: all seeing, all knowing and ever vigilant studio angel who in the course of a day averts many tear inducing disasters. Thanks Danni for my little reminder and also thanks to Sam my Supervisor who noticed that even after reading the note I forgot to place the setters under my pieces and doing it for me. Thanks to Chris who thought the gas kiln I was firing smelt a bit funky. He was right. I had forgotten to remove the setters that should have been under my pieces but instead were covering the gas burners which meant the flames were not going into the cavity. Cripes, this is starting to sound like an award speech I’d better stop. Now I will go and give myself a stern talk regarding focus when loading and firing a kiln. Till next time.
