Testing Testing

19 April, 2013

Its taken some time to get my new gas kiln going but I’m finally getting close to doing my first firing in it. The bespoke swivelling flue is installed, the gas burners are attached, the pyrometer is working, and it gets hot inside! So it’s all systems go.

I’m aiming to do my first firing in it this weekend. Much of the kiln’s contents for its first run will be pieces that aren’t too critical, just in case things don’t go to plan. But it’ll be great to get it going for real. I’ll have lots to tinker with as the kiln and I get to know each other and we work to get the reduction just right. But I have a new order from a gallery to fulfil as well as Earth and Fire looming. So I’d better get off the computer and get on with it…

    I have kiln envy – would love to be able to do reduction firings – tho it does sound much more variable/complicated. Good luck!
