  1. Hi all! I have recently inhereted a kiln that needs some love. I'm a little unsure of how much or what type exactly. There is glaze on the heating elements in spots and some damage to fire brick. What would you recommend? Images of kiln
  2. Hello! Looking for some advice on whether to buy this used Cress Kiln. I haven’t thrown on the wheel since college, so I am intermediate at best. I just need a good kiln for hobby pottery pieces and don’t know a whole lot about kilns yet, or whether this is a good price at $195. Thank you so much in advance!! https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/478879423099184/
  3. Hello! I recently purchased some Laguna Speckled Buff (WC-403) and have been throwing some pieces on the wheel. I have been looking for a perfect honey brown/light tan speckled clay and finally came across this one. Anyway, I made and fired some pieces with a Cone 6 cone in the kiln sitter and everything turned out kind of burned (?) looking and darker than I was expecting. I fired some more pieces but this time put a Cone 5 bar in the kiln sitter and got almost the same result My glazes also aren't showing up as well. Does anyone have any ideas of why it is coming out like this or have any advice? Thanks a bunch!
  4. Hi all! I am trying to make a small pizza oven out of raku clay. Any suggestions would be welcome, but especially any answers to: 1. How thick should the walls be? 2. Can I "self-fire" the oven by building a small fire inside instead of firing it in a kiln? I dont have my own kiln, and firing it locally could get pricey.
  5. Hey happy to have found this group, looking for beginner info on using a electric kiln. Norman kiln. I know they are out of business and can be serviced. Looking for instructions on first time use, what to place it on top of? What to test with and operating info.. any advice welcome
  6. Hi All, writing as an American from East Coast but living in Denmark. I am in need of a new kiln after buying 2 used that I couldn't get working properly (I live on an island with only 6,000 people - none knowledgeable about kiln tech/specs/operation/parts etc. and my husband and I are useless for various reasons. I will sell the 2 to people off the island and get back some money). In Denmark there is one manufacturer of kilns and, as such, they get hefty prices for quality I'm not so sure about. Before, I buy, I'd love to hear anyone's recommendations, experience or knowledge of qualities/reliability/durability of kilns in EU (some being sold in the U.S. as well)? (Rhode, Nabertherm, Paragon, Olympic, Cromartie, Potterycrafts, possibly Skutt- many others made in the UK)? I would absolutely be buying an L&L in the U.S. if I were there (and couldn't join a shared studio). Rhode and Nabertherm are closest to where I live in Denmark. L&L does not have a supplier in EU, though I do have one on the East Coast who will ship to me - so I am considering that too. I know though that customs duties will be outrageous, and tax will include the duties and shipping costs plus price and tax the whole amount at 25%! All those I can find in EU will require shipping to where I live so would consider the right kiln from UK or other EU countries. Any ideas - they will be highly appreciated! THANKS in advance
  7. Hi all, I am trying to buy a versatile kiln for small projects at home, and the roderveld pyramid kiln with the gas and wood firing bases seems like a good choice for bisque, raku and stoneware glaze firing with the versatility to give me a variety of effects. The only problem is that I can't find any references from anyone who has ever used one, and it's a load of money to spend on something without having any idea whether it will do all the things I want (basically I don't have unlimited space so I want a kiln that can do as much as possible, I want to try a variety of techniques, and I don't really want to fire an electric kiln). Can anyone tell me if they have used one and if it's a good piece of kit? Thanks
  8. hello all hope everyone is safe and doing well in these difficult times! i have just joined this community and was hoping you all would be able to help me out. i normally throw on a wheel (where i go take classes) and have been doing so for about a year. i signed up for a membership at a pottery studio because i would love to pursue a career in ceramics. and then this quarantine happened. Sooo, i was maybe hoping to order some clay online and coil build some dinnerware or hand build random figurines. -Do i need a wedging table in order to do this? - how would i go about recycling my clay, should i just dump everything and let it dry out? i am unsure of how to upkeep and maintain things due to the fact i took classes and the teacher would handle all of the hands on stuff. any tips and advice on how i should go about all this would be immensely helpful! thanks in advance :))
