  1. I recently got into throwing and have been making stuff in a local studio and at home. I feel comfortable and confident enough on the wheel to start doing things more on my own and in my own home studio. Costs for firing at the studio are starting to add up and it would just be so much easier to do everything at home rather than transporting pieces back and forth. I have done quite a bit of kiln research but I still feel like I know nothing and I find it a lot easier to learn the details from experienced artists. A family friend has an old kiln and as I expressed my interest in possibly buying it from her, she gave me the model and details, but I need more help figuring out if it is a good investment. And if it is, how much should I offer? Will it work for bisque and glaze firing? If this isn't a good fit, do you have any other first kiln suggestions? I have so many questions and need answers! The model is an Evenheat DTP-56DC-E. Thanks to anybody who can help
  2. Hey there! If anyone has some insight on this, I could really use an opinion. I have an Even Heat lowfire kiln that has a max firing temp of 2300 Fahrenheit. It currently handles 150 volt and plugs into a regular outlet in the garage. I have been wanting to fire at higher temps but this kiln takes forever to make it to ^04. And I tried to fire ^6 glaze once but after 20+ hours, it never reached temp. My plan has then been to convert it to 220 volt and make a new cord/plug, hoping the extra juice would get it to fire higher or faster. My concern is that because ^6 can reach 2250F, that would be pushing my old kiln to it's absolute limit. Would converting the voltage make that doable? Or is that too dangerous? Thank you for any insight you can give me! I don't want to cause a fire from blindly experimenting, haha!
  3. Hi! Does anyone have experience with Evenheat kilns? I am looking to buy my first kiln, is this in super bad condition (I’m way new!) for the price? The seller is holding it for me. She said that the last time it was used was in December and it worked great. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/257974788856749/ thank you in advance for helping a newbie!
