I'm looking for existing plans or tips to build a drying chamber for my pots. I have been for the past three years torch drying my pots to an ideal leather hard for trimming, this normally takes about 45 minutes for around 25 mugs and I'm trying to find a more efficient option that will give the same consistent results (I trim at a pretty specific stage of leather hard and torching has been the only way to consistently get there so far.) I'm basically searching for some type of humidity controlled chamber that I can leave pots in over night so they'll be ready to trim without the need for torching. My studio is very dry during winter and very humid during summer so having a small controlled environment chamber seems like the best option. Any ideas or even any existing products I might find? Has anyone made something like this? Thanks! Dan
Aloha. I am a newbie taking ceramic classes at a community center in Hawaii. I would like to purchase my own kiln and was wondering if anyone in Hawaii or other tropical paradises can give me feedback regarding manual versus electronic controllers in an electric kiln. Humidity often causes problems with electronic devices here and before I purchase a kiln I would really appreciate input from any fellow potters who have experience firing an electric kiln in the tropics. Mahalo nui loa (thanks very much!).
