Yesterday, I baked bread in the kiln as it passed through 500 degrees F on its down from 2300 the night before. I love doing this.

I have a few BreadPots for the next batch that are just right for inscribing. This week only, customize a BreadPot, regular recipe-in-lid price, in time for spring and summer wedding presents, for example.

Just finished a kiln load of new BreadPots. The colors are sand, brick, and salmon.
Some of them are thrown by my apprentice, Dave. He is getting really good as I nudge him with my perfectionism. Next Saturday I will go to the Bread Fair following the Kneading Conference in Skowhegan, Maine. Some of his will be mixed in with mine. I will offer a special price for the plain ones he made, without a recipe under the lid, of $150. If you want one, come to the fair or go to BreadPots.com. I have many with recipes and as always there is Pick of the Kiln with the best features of the lot, signed and stamped.
