    I only have two as well Crusty, and one is a simple Raku kiln. Nothing wrong with just having two, or even one.

    No need for more than 1 mode of firing. I just love kilns and how they work. Really interests me and I love fire.

Love it when a glaze comes out completely different than it is supposed to. Not sure if it was the different clay or I didn't apply it on the same way.

    Worse, I seem to have lost the nice texture/colour difference that came from adding rutile. I think it was too thin.

I seem to be stuck in my work. Nothing feels like it is working, nothing feels good. I need a plan.

    Thanks, maybe I should go out and walk and take some pictures.
    The making of the pots is good but I feel stuck with glazing. My studio is littered with test tiles xD

    Walking is great for this. Gets you back inside away from the worrying.
    You jsut have to keep watching...
    Sounds like you are biting into a big area in your glazing posts, lots to absorb, just walk.

    Taking a mental break from the chemisty then going back to the books before making more tests seems to work for me when I've hit a wall. Maybe start with 1 simple glaze that you know works and just try modifying that one.

Loading up the top loader. Just finished and then I knocked a test tile right down to the bottom... Recovered said tile after a careful balancing act removing shelves full of pots.

    Isn't that the way it happens. Reminder of being careful putting things in the kiln. especially o top.

    Grrrr, I hate it when that happens. If it is a small bisque piece, I usually get it after unloading. If it has glaze on it, time to go fishing for it....

I need to stop trying the combo of glossy glaze over a semi-matt. They always come out rubbish no mater how many times I think it is going to work...

Crossing my fingers for a good glaze tile somewhere in the kiln. Been trying out some new ideas. 100 degrees and the lid is open :D Time for a snack while they cool down.
