Hi my friends! Is winter still on your doorstep? Where I live, the sun is shining as if spring is just waiting round the corner... My today's guest is Pugaboo: She sent me a question that I misunderstood, and we had a good laugh about "being blond" Here goes: How many people vent the INSIDE of their kiln using either a downdraft vent or a hood vent? If so, has doing so changed how your kiln fires or pottery looks? I myself have a hood on top of my kiln and a tube, transporting the fumes outside. Well, let's all post a pic of our kilns! Don't forget to answer also the 2nd question! Happy week to all of you. Thanks to Pugaboo for the interesting question!! Evelyne
In pictures of Anagama, Noborigama and other open air kilns I regularly see so called kiln gods sitting on top of the kilns. Recently Iâ€™ve read the book â€œThe Worship of Kiln Godsâ€ by Dr. PhD Martie Geiger-Ho and I was really impressed that you can find kiln gods all over the world. Well, I admit I fabricated a kiln god myself and set it upon my electric kiln when I last fired it andâ€¦. the firing was just perfect. Now John will (maybe) tell me that kiln gods have no place on a programmable electric kiln because the god canâ€™t have influence over the set program. Or can he/she? So tell me: do you all believe in kiln gods? Do you have one yourself? Do you think its all superstition? Or is it faith?.... or just tradition? I wonderâ€¦. Evelyne
