It never ceases to amaze me how after all these years of loading and unloading kilns, that every time I open a glaze kiln it's always exciting! Most of us in the biz refer to it being like Christmas, and it is. Your precious little gems that you spent all that time making and then glazing are finely coming to fruition. It's especially awesome when things turn out right when you open the kiln lid. Oh the joy!
