  1. In pictures of Anagama, Noborigama and other open air kilns I regularly see so called kiln gods sitting on top of the kilns. Recently I’ve read the book “The Worship of Kiln Gods†by Dr. PhD Martie Geiger-Ho and I was really impressed that you can find kiln gods all over the world. Well, I admit I fabricated a kiln god myself and set it upon my electric kiln when I last fired it and…. the firing was just perfect. Now John will (maybe) tell me that kiln gods have no place on a programmable electric kiln because the god can’t have influence over the set program. Or can he/she? So tell me: do you all believe in kiln gods? Do you have one yourself? Do you think its all superstition? Or is it faith?.... or just tradition? I wonder…. Evelyne
