I'm a real newbie to ceramics, I just finished my first project, a black porcelain sake set: http://www.dontstare.../work/yozakura/
and I'm going to start working on new projects, so I'm thinking of investing in a kiln.
but! I do not have a basement nor an extra room I could use. I was thinking of getting a small test kiln to put in my kitchen (which has no door and is open to the living room where I work most of the time) but I've been told it would not safe.
now, I do have a backyard, would it be possible to have a kiln outside ? I searched this forum and googled in order to find some answers, it seems some people do it but I still don't know if it's ok to do that.
I mean, would it be ok when it snows and rains ? what about when it's super hot during the summer ? would the changes of temperature outside the kiln be an issue ?
I don't even know if my landlord would be okay for me to have a kiln outside but before I ask him I want to make sure it would actually be an option.
thanks for reading!
