The last Loading and firing

Brad standing proudly in front of his loading job.  We loaded yesterday.  Finished loading at five and fired until eight the next night.  So it was a 27 hour firing. 
There was also a gas firing happening which brought many more people to the glazing and loading area.
My first shift was at 5am.  Beautiful time of day.
John giving it one of the final stokes.  Seth in the background.

Mike shutting the door after the final stoke of a long firing.  He looks pretty satisfied to me.

I'll take the jar on the top shelf with the lid. Looks like you did a fine job. Mom:)

Thanks mom. I will have to make one for you to put sugar in when I get back home.
