My Skutt kiln has been in storage for the last 6 years because we were living in an apartment and I had no way to work in clay there. A year ago we bought a house with a back yard shed just big enough for me to make it into a studio. A couple of weeks ago my son brought the Skutt kiln home and set it up on the patio.
