the awesome bread device died catastrophically yesterday while baking a 25% rye sourdough. i brought the carcass to judy motzkin and she thinks it may be a result of the firing process evolving a crystalline form of silica that makes the resultant clay more susceptible to thermal shock at the range of temperatures involved in baking tasty bread. she investigates even now. the universe of subjective knowledge expands outward at a speed far exceeding the individual's capacity to understand it.
