Anagama: loading Day 2

Flue slurry
The flue to the chimney has been somewhat drafty causing pots in the past two firings to accumulate ash during the cool-down after the door has been bricked up. The post end up crustier than we'd like necessitating an additional firing in a reduction gas kiln to melt the ash. Hopefully, this slip/newspaper mix will alleviate this problem. If not, more problem solving will be required!
