Packing work began. Starting at the far end chamber (No. 4), extreme care was necessary to position potteries as the chamber has more than 26 degrees slope. The inclination rises in four steps, the last chamber having the steepest climb. In order for art works not roll forward it is necessary to fix them. The filling then continued to No. 3 chamber. The size of the art works vary from very small to some very large, requiring careful examination of possible fire passage. All are working to the limit as everyone needs to finish his or her art works in time. This is a fight against time.

I myself really want to meet the ignition on the 28th, sped up the filling of the kiln. I called it a day at the kiln after placing pots on the back shelves in No. 2 chamber, but other tasks kept us and Chris up till way past midnight .
