Great topic as I am looking to have my very own kiln by the end of the year. I am new to this group and have enjoyed reading these posts.
Maybe you have already done this. I had been thinking that I needed a much larger kiln until I visited a potter I know and saw not only the kiln, but the size and number of items that came out of his most recent glaze load. It was a very small kiln, but the results were similar to what I imagine I would want as a load of my own items. It was eye opening!!!!
I like the L&L kilns but I am looking at the Olympic Medallion Artist line of kilns.
