I have been doing this for 25 years and on Sunday I was out in the garage unloading a bisque load that was too hot to touch ... ouch, ouch ouch ... but I kept on going. It never gets old.

With every mastered skill comes something else that is strange and intriguing.
My family thinks this whole process is strange and intriguing. They stand around watching me throw, trim, load and unload the kiln as though it was a spectator sport.

Be sure to double check your wire size from the panel/fuse box to the kiln to insure the correct wire size if you are going to fire at a higher cone later on.
Don't need a power failure during glaze fire.

I just got a kiln, and will be taking on my first firing in a few months. Glad to know there are others around trying to figure stuff out, it makes it a little less intimidating!

On the downside, I have been working a LOT, and have not had any time at all in my studio lately. I gotta fix that.
