Fired my new kiln for the first time. One glaze still looks about the same o.0 Think I also messed up the cobalt carbonate.

Sitting patiently waiting for my kiln to be delivered. And by that I mean 3 cups of coffee and me running round the studio not wanting to make any work till it gets here xD

The master has failed more times than the beginner has even tried.

I can't stop looking on ebay for cheap kilns. I think I have a problem... maybe. I just found a 75 litre kiln for £100! Do I travel the 200 miles to go and buy it :g

    There's a rule that says you need x+1 of whatever it is you're hankering after.

Had so many test tiles out the little kiln recently. Lots of options but nothing I am looking for. I am not even sure what I am looking for until I see it.

    I have the same problem, I'm always sure I know what I want. I can never find that perfect glaze. Denice

Feel like doing some zen practice after this night shift is over. Might have to put some clay on to recycle then go for a nap first!

    I pick a shape and throw it 5 times, then another 5 with little changed to the form. After this I put them all back into the recycle and hopefully have a good idea of what form I am going to make multiples of. It didn't work out today. I made two and gave up and went onto preparing some test glazes instead.

Waiting round for my new wheel to be delivered. What better than to order The Kiln Book while I wait :D Note to self, remember to cancel amazon prime before I have to pay.

Anybody with a Skutt wheel used the cuphead plaster batt system and is it any good?

    Well I have purchased a skutt and very excited for it arriving on Wednesday :DD
    Now I have a big hole where my money once was but it will be worth it when 20 years down the line it is still going strong.

Late night purchase of Kanthal A1 wire. How hard can it be to make an element?

    We found the tricky part was figuring out the length to cut the wire.

    Good luck, cut longer rather than shorter!
    How hard.....for me out of the question.

    Well the wire has arrived :D £6 for 50m. Hopefully that will make the two elements that I need. Need some insulating fire bricks now! They are a lot more of my hard earned money :(
