  1. Hi folks, once again no questions in the pool. All of you know that I have been firing a manual only kiln for over 35 years. Firing by cones and temperature color has been a learning curve, but the new kiln has made me jump into a whole new world of programmable firing. I have been using the fast bisque, and the fast glaze for my firings, but now that I have calibrated the cone offset to -40F. I yearn for a bit more depth in my color as I had achieved with the manual firings. The reading is interesting, and I am considering my own schedule. This brings me to wonder if others just use the available programs for firing or do they write their own. QotW: When using your programmable kiln, do you use preset schedules or set your own custom schedules? best, Pres
  2. Have any of you fired a sculpture with a piece of drywall underneath? I heard you could do it when the piece is large or delicate. In this way, I don't need to touch the actual piece, while loading it into the kiln. I'm thinking of doing it if you think it is safe. Appreciate your advice in advance. Tenyoh
  3. Hello, I recently graduated, but while I was in school, (and learning how to fire a kiln) I came across two common issues. The first was that everyone said to use a kiln log. (Although no one had a log handy when asked) And that the act of making a log was cumbersome. (To the point that when a log was found, the most critical data at the end was usually incomplete) So I taught myself how to code, and created an app to solve (my highly specific) problem! https://apps.apple.com/us/app/blaze-kiln-log/id1510609232 (Or search “Blaze Kiln Log” in the App Store) The app is completely free! Although it is currently only available for iPhone. (But with plans for iPad and Mac support sometime in the future) If you’re kind enough to give it a try, I’d love to hear any feedback you have. Good or bad. You’re welcome to post it here, send me a PM, or email me through the link in the app. Also, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask, I’d love to answer them!
