fired my test kiln yesterday. Loaded at 23 degrees, went down to -6 overnight. Not in a heated shed. That little kiln is 20+ years old. Only replaced a switch on it over this time. I have a spare element in case I need it. It just has a cone sitter and timer. Its a Crucible from Seattle pottery.

just started firing tonight. Thought tomorrow was going to be nice. Wrong. Wind and snow. So while it is nice today, I got it loaded and firing. Should be done turning it up by 9...my bedtime. Timer and cone setter should take care of the rest. I'll check it about 5 am.
Firing espresso cups for Matt to take back to DC, mugs for a friend and tea bowls for another friend. The back to show pieces.
there was a really strong wind last night as well as my motion detector light on the kiln shed going on and off. Checked the kiln at midnight. It was off. Shut off security light and went back to sleep.
Will unload after I walk the dog.
