  1. I am very new to ceramics.. can you please recommend me your favorite clays and glazes? (Paint on glazes, don’t have a space for dip yet) thank you!
  2. Thank you for your response!… by “hot enough to burn paper” - you mean inside, right? Not outside of kiln? when I look online, the companies offer a vent setup to go with the kiln…. Would that be enough?
  3. Hello all! My first post here After going to different studios to use a kiln I finally decided to get my own. I never actually fired anything - all the studios I went to have special people/equipment for that. So I left my items there and picked them up after they were done. Probably L&L E18S-3 or similar (3 inch walls). I have 2 options - which do you think is better? Option one - outside wooden shed. We are in Massachusetts, so pretty cold in the winter and hot in the summer. If I use the shed, what precautions do I need to take? Can I still store other not ceramic related stuff in there? I am not sure how hot kiln gets on the outside? Also worried about difference of the temperatures inside/outside the kiln during winter... Option 2 - my house's basement. We have a storage room, the positive is that it has concrete floor and walls and a small window I could vent into. Negative - it's pretty small and all the electrical and pipes are there so again, I am not sure how hot would it get during firing.. Any advise please? Thank you ps As I never fired a kiln.... How long does it take. I understand there are 3 parts to it - Warming up, firing, cooling off. So I guess it can be left unattended during cooling off phase, right? How long does it takes to warm up and fire?
