Making of a mug: Day twelve

Part one
This was the view through the peephole this morning. The firing cycle had completed before I woke up and the kiln was already cooling. I then had to wait (not very patiently) until it got below 200˚c so that I could open it up. If you open the lid too early the rush of cold air can cause pieces to crack. So another couple of hours should do it…

Part two
I opened the kiln about an hour ago… and this is what greeted me.

Part three
So here it is… the finished mug.
Thank you for following me through its journey.
