Hi everyone. I am in need of somewhere I can fire a kiln in Orange County, California. I live in an apartment and don't have the electrical or space necessary to do so. I've been given an old Duncan kiln, in rough shape, from a friend who didn't know how to use it. Looking for someone with a garage or private space to fire this or their kiln, some sort of kiln-sharing or kiln-coop situation. I have studios I take my work to fire to, but it is not ideal since pricing is more than it would be on my own, and since I can only reserve so many kiln loads. I need to be able to fire more frequently. A
I'm interested in doing pit firing in an updraft kiln made from a metal barrel. The laws in CA, especially in Sacramento can be pretty tight when it comes to what we do on our properties and I can't seem to get a clear answer about whether or not it's legal, or how to go about getting a fire permit IF they would allow this type of thing. Does anyone have experience pit firing in Northern CA?
