I Finally Did It!

After much delay due to fear and anxiety, I have finally fired the first bisque load in my kiln that I've had sitting in my garage ready and able for the last seven months. With some fumbling and ten eaten cuticles later, Ta Da...I present to you my first Cone 06 firing. Everything survived with no cracks, and it makes such a lovely "ding" sound when you flick it with your fingers. Of course the true test will be when I glaze them and then we'll see if we'll live happily ever after.
