Update on kiln unloading

Well, from what I can see right now I wasn't able to get complete reduction in the bottom of the kiln on my copper purple. The body reduction seems to be right on and the glazes all appear to have behaved well, with the exception of a few green pieces that I tried. Next time around I'll have to make some better doors to close off the firebox and make the damper a little tougher.

Still, for the first wood firing in four years and on a new kiln I'm pretty pleased. The kiln ran even from top to bottom and I've remembered a little more from my old wood training. I'm sure I'll get the reduction on the bottom decks next time.
