Recent firing of more flameware vessels. They came out nice but really matt. I'm not sure if that will make a difference in cooking. So far this one and a casserole work nicely. The odd thing is that the city seems to give us less power in the summer, so getting these to fire completely was really difficult. I also had to adjust the kiln setter to prevent them from underfiring. DOES anyone still use those, or is it all computerized now? Realize my knowledge of firing goes back to 1993!
In any case, Romano beans slowly simmered in tomato and olive oil. I also roasted lamb chops in the casserole. Lovely, and baked a mac and cheese in it the other night too.
