  1. I just bought a used kiln. As far as I know it’s in decent shape for it’s age. The downfall is that the bottom has many cracks that go all the way through! The band on it holding it together is rigged, holding it together with wire. I’m assuming that as long as the band is tight there isn’t any way for the bottom to give out and collapse, or maybe it will I don’t know. The bricks are pretty fragile and flake off so I don’t want to mess around with it to much. I’m new to kilns and maybe just over thinking. Should I replace the bottom? Is it safe to have cracks that go all the way through the bottom? If anyone has any feed back please let me know anything helps. I’ll post photos later when I can.
  2. Posted just now Hi, wondering if anyone can help I have a large bowl with a small 2cm crack from the rim, it has been bisque fired and what can i do to repair? I have a similar problem, but longer on another bowl. thickness of sides and rim all ok, it is hand built so i do try to compress as much as i can around the rim. Also where I’m having the firing down my work (and I guess others works) are coming out with black marks like dots on them, just wondering what that could be. Many thanks/‘
