Explosion

You can’t have any successes unless you can accept failure. ~George Cukor

Just when I thought things were going well, sales were picking up for the holidays, had many custom orders, I was actually ahead of schedule…..
Having a bad day. It happens to use all. Sometimes things just go wrong, it just sees to happen a lot recently. I think that the computer on my kiln reverted to the last program I used, which was a quick , fast gold firing, instead of the very slow bisque firing I usually do. I expected the kiln to fire around 100 degrees in an hour, I returned to check on it in and hour and a half and it was over 700 degrees, with this result.I am trying desperately to stay upbeat. I stayed up late last night night working on the orders that broke. Many of them did, some, miraculously survived. I lost around 3-4 days of work in this small disaster. Life goes on. I just have less time than I thought. After all tomorrow is another day….

I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. ~Thomas Edison

    We’ve all been there a time or two, paying the kiln god.
    This is why I use a manual setting kiln! Computers are evil.
