We here in the desert southwest have had 26 days of 100+ degree weather. The only thing that makes it somewhat bearable is that it`s dry! Single digit humidity keeps the temps livable and wrinkles a person up like a raisin. Of course, the outside heat is nothin compared to the raku kiln. I fired these fetish horses early this morning using some top secret magic. Even the queen said I dun good. They`ll be back after a bit of sprucing up, but this is the first day in finishing school. Amazing what a bath in 1850 degree fire and smoke can do for a hunk of dirt. Nice thing about these hay burners is they never need a bath and won`t kick, bite or eat much!
