Hi, so it's been awhile since I've been here on this forum. We've empty nested and moved to NJ from Mass. My studio contents have been in storage for the last 7 months. In a few weeks, I will have a house and a studio again! I have been taking classes at TASOC in Demarest to stay sane. I fell hard for the reduction look there. Since I sold my electric kiln before we moved, I am in need of a new kiln and plan to buy a gas kiln and fire to cone 6.
What I know:
There is a natural gas line right near the garage wall where I will set up (indoors).
I will need the right size fitting to the kiln for the gas.
There is a high window that I can vent out of.
I probably will get a Bailey....
OK, that's it! ha ha not much.
-Can I bisque in the gas kiln?
-How much of the time during the firing do I need to be doing something?
-Will my cone 6 electric glazes look fabulous fired in reduction?
-Things to consider when shopping for the kiln?
-Please recommend a good step by step book for firing with gas and reducing.
-I'd love to take a workshop but haven't seen anything.... have you?
-What do I need to know?
Thank you for any help!
