Public thanks to Neil Estrick for the encouragement and help diagnosing the problem. Thanks to Arnold Howard's You tube videos that served as a big help. And Of course my husband for helping me too. I thought my life was over when my kiln didn't work thursday- thank goodness an element is a simple thing to change. In the morning i will find out if i successfully fired.

I am however pretty sad that my bricks are very old and brittle... super brittle!! I don't think it will tolerate another element change.

"To me the greatest thing is to live beauty in our daily life and to crowd every moment with things of beauty.  It is then, and then only that  the art of the people as a whole is endowed with it's richest significance.  For it's products are those made by great a many craftsmen for the mass of the people, and the moment this art declines the life of the nation  is removed far away from beauty.  So long as beauty abides in only in a few articles created by a few geniuses, the kingdom of beauty is nowhere near realization."                                                                                 - Bernard Leach
