terraforma posted a topic in Equipment Use and RepairI live in Los Angeles, I've just started renting my very own studio in a commercial space, and I need to find an electrician to do some upgrades to include installation of a new electric kiln (either Skutt or L&L, my first kiln, and I've never even fired a kiln yet!!) I've already heard and read more about the myriad nightmares that can come from a bad electrical job than is good for my mental health. Even done by a licensed electrician, when they don't understand the extreme requirements of a kiln! (has anyone seen the instagram pics of @lyonclay's kiln meltdown?) I plan to avoid that from the start if I possibly can Whoever does this work will be getting a strict lecture from me about taking no shortcuts and following the manufacturer's specs and installation instructions TO. THE. LETTER. but it will be more of a comfort to know that the one I hire will have done this at least once beforeâ€”successfully! Thank you for any and all recommendations and advice!
Hi all Pietro Maddalena has built a new Soda Kiln at La Meridiana/Tuscany and there's a workshop, including the baptism of the kiln (scheduled for Oct 4th), with Jayson Lawfer.
