    Camping, kayaking, family, travel, Art in general. I have a small studio in my garage. Two electric kilns, two wheels, wedging table etc. I am primarily interested in cone 6 Ox. but like to see what is going on at all ranges. Read about ceramics voraciously and love the feel of the clay and throwing. Have to admit that my greatest joy is in the making, not the glazing. That said I do mix my own glazes, some of my own formulas, some borrowed. Retired from teaching art, in 2009 after 36 years, taught ceramics 34 of those years.

  1. Finished a bisque of patens, firing was weird. So checked out the elements with the ohm meter. Top element is dead. Have backups, will put in before glaze load.

      I would think they can be shipped up there. However, with you being on the West coast, it really isn't a good idea with the shipping.

      I could have fired it without, but it will reach temp quicker this way. Gotta love L&L for the element holders.

      I think I'm just going to have to covet your L&L from afar, can't really justify buying another kiln. ^_^

      I understand that, have been considering a new kiln, but the old on is 30 and doing well. I keep replacing whatever needs replacing.
