Wondering what to do when small glazed pieces roll off the second shelf onto the floor of the kiln? Get your long cooking chopsticks out and pick up the escaped pieces without unloading the shelf. I always knew all that hashi practice in Japan would come in handy.

I had to devise an angled sweeping tool out of pipe cleaners to get the one that rolled under the bottom shelf. Luckily we had a lot of leftover pipe cleaners after Larson Gallery's Santa's Workshop event.
