Into the kiln.

Today I loaded the kiln. This piece is only about 20mm smaller than the width of the kiln so I had to walk it in using tiny gradual movements so as not to scrape its surface on the kiln walls. It was also very heavy so tiny movements suited me fine!p1010905At this point I need to still lift from the side which is a bit awkward.p1010912I need it as far back as possible if I am going to be able to close the door.p1010913
