Raku Gloves: Pbi Vs Kevlar Vs Kevlar/pbi Blend

11 September 2016 - 05:31 PM

I'm finally ready to buy gloves that protect against flames and hot pots better than leather welders gloves.  After researching PBI, Kevlar, and a PBI/Kevlar blend, I'm confused by all the options. The gloves will be used once or twice a month to remove very hot pots from a flaming "pit" fire.  Any advice regarding material, manufacturer or retailer would be welcome.


Sumi Von Dassow Youtube Video Of Smoke Firing?

20 February 2016 - 10:40 AM

Hi, all.  It's been awhile since I posted on the forum, but I'm back and as always I need help.  I am certain that I remember a member sharing a short (5 minutes?) video of Summi either pit firing or using a trash can to fire.  I'm going to try one or the other today and although I have her book, I surely could use some visuals.  Anybody able to steer me toward the video?
