    Yeah it's true so many people are put off because there's so much to learn, when sometimes yo've just got to go ahead and get your hands in some clay and make something or you lose the inspiration! xxx

    Kilns - new or second hand?

    Thanks guys for all your feedback. It will probably take at least another year of saving before I can buy a new one, unless I sell a kidney (LOL), but as the saying goes, good things come to those who wait... I also live in the north PotBeautiful - can I as where you got yours from? Was it Northern Kilns by any chance? And may I ask what type you chose in the end? Thanks again for everyone's time - it's made my decision a little more clearer - I will probably go with new! Benjinca

    Kilns - new or second hand?

    Thanks very much for your message. At the moment new kilns in the UK are at least £1500 and good used ones seem to be about £800! They're not cheap but I will be keeping it for a long time so it's probably best to get a new one. Thanks for your time. Benjinca
  6. HI there. I've literally joined this group today as it seems like everyone is really knowledgeable and I was hoping you may be able to help me figure out whether you think it's worth it to buy a new kiln or take a chance on a second-hand one? I've been looking on eBay as it's cheaper to buy second hand but being completely new to pottery I don't really know what I'm looking for. I would like to have the option to fire porcelain eventually so it would have to be able to reach those temps, but apart from that there are so many options....it seems to be a bit of a minefield. I don't reallywant to buy a white elephant and just wondered about other people's experiences? Cheers Benjinca
