In Topic: Just How Old Is Too Old For A Kiln?

Yesterday, 10:40 AM

My skut kiln is almost 40 yrs. old & I just had new elements replace top to bottom for the 1st time. Have had sections replaced before. I glaze fire in a day & wonder if it will be just as before or fire higher. Reset the sitter by eye, just touching. It works better that way for me usually. Maybe I'd better wash the bottoms of the runnier glazes back further.

I like your pieces.
Just remember to take the sticks out of the beads as the clay will shrink as it dries but the sticks won't thus causing cracked beads.

I've had them for a few years also. A store in western Canada called Princess Auto sells them individually or a kit.

My glaze area is long & narrow lined with mats that really help as I walk back &a forth from glaze buckets to sink. They are a foot & back saver.

Your plates are lovely. I have a screen but it's been gathering dust. You have inspired me to try it.
