After stopping fire the kiln remains high temperature for a while. Even for my small kiln, it takes 24 hours or more before open the kiln chamber.
Fire mouths at about 2000F.
The last firing on Sep. 12 became night time work.
About Nature
"Nature" could mean many things for us. From hurricanes to bugs to morning glories. We experience nature only of its fraction at a time. Because nature can means so many things, it almost means nothing for our daily life. No wonder even highest spiritual leaders don't explain much about what the relationship between human and nature should be. We see one thing very beautiful, and other thing on the side of it ugly. But, as we cumulate our own experience, we cannot dismiss the balance of the nature that rewards us, and has the most profound imprication for our life. In this balance we see nature of the nature, which is beautiful.
