First time firing the kiln

After I started the kiln on friday evening at 6pm, it cooled down till 120°C on saturday evening at 23pm. I was too tired to wait for it to cool down completely to load it again so today will be the big day but the results will be revealed tommorrow or the day after.
I have all my feelings ready to be fired. With only transporting them from upstairs to downstairs, some of them got damaged a tiny little bit. Jip, they are superfragile when dry and not fired.So I give them a little cure with clay slib & vinegar and for a few I'll just use some glaze as glue. I just have to be really careful when I adjust it as I don't want any signs of glaze on my little feelings. Here you see the most fragile feelings...
