top cage assembled

Day 1. Start collecting parts for my new raku kiln. So far, instruction book, lots of wire & a burner w hose. 

Day.2. Constructed basic cage frame, injured hand, took cage to a metal shop to make it sturdy & prettier! My hand doesn't look too pretty under this bandage but its just a scratch. 

Day 3. Picked up cage frame & they did a nice job- look at those handles!

I was really happy with their work. They had to tack weld down one side and around the top and the handles are big enough for my bulky gloves. I did realize though that I will have to hunt down a long flame proof apron or something to wear for the lift-off procedure.

if you remove the burner after turning it off, what flame are you worried about?  never having been in charge of raku firing, only a helper, i cannot remember anything flaming except once it was put into a metal post firing container with the lid not yet put on top. (that is what i was doing)
