Evelyne Schoenmann posted a topic in Int'l Ceramic Artists Network (ICAN) Operations and BenefitsHi my friends! Is winter still on your doorstep? Where I live, the sun is shining as if spring is just waiting round the corner... My today's guest is Pugaboo: She sent me a question that I misunderstood, and we had a good laugh about "being blond" Here goes: How many people vent the INSIDE of their kiln using either a downdraft vent or a hood vent? If so, has doing so changed how your kiln fires or pottery looks? I myself have a hood on top of my kiln and a tube, transporting the fumes outside. Well, let's all post a pic of our kilns! Don't forget to answer also the 2nd question! Happy week to all of you. Thanks to Pugaboo for the interesting question!! Evelyne

Recently Iâ€™ve read the book â€œThe Worship of Kiln Godsâ€ 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 andâ€¦. 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 canâ€™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 wonderâ€¦. Evelyne
