Why does it take so long to post a thread, like I am back in 1997 on dialup xD No wonder people spam the post button staring at the blinky dots.

I had a small test tile melt glaze onto the shelf. I was able to chisel most of it off but there is still a small amount of glaze adhered to the shelf. Can I kiln wash over that 1-inch spot or does every bit of glaze have to be removed?

    When you post about slowing down; that means you are going to fire the 42Cf once a week instead of twice?

After a month of conquering 4qt bowls, I'm finding myself much happier with 8 pounds of clay and just a 3qt bowl. Yes. That makes be about a 'quart low'...but we've known that for a while, right?

My first ever single firing is in the kiln. Hunting round the house for displacement activities to keep me from wondering just exactly what is going to happen.

    Joseph: I recommend anger management courses; throwing things is a sign of anger from stress. :)

    = ). Oh my son loves to come in when I am throwing pots away. He puts on his safety goggles and tosses them in the trashcan as hard as he can. BAM.

What a mess. Just had my thermocouple replaced and I've looked into the kiln and it's a mess!!! Shelves have broken and needless to say all the pieces have crashed into each other. A total write off. Some nice stuff in there as well
