Hi , new here. I'm using clay from the studio where I practice that fires to cone 6 for bisque for test pieces in a first time sawdust Kiln. I've made my own wood fired kiln that fires 2-3 pieces at a time. that got hot enough to crack the cinder block chimney. the pieces actually came out white and a good sound. I temporarily dismantled it to find chimney sleeve of terracotta and am repurposing the good cinder and pavers and made a pit for sawdust firing. I can probably fit 10 pieces on 2 levels in it. I'm not expecting white but will it fire hard enough to withstand holding non caustic liquids like water Beer, wine? Should I slowly preheat the pieces in the oven or gas grill to avoid the shock of sudden heat that may crack pieces. I am planning to rebuild the wood kiln in the spring with heavier cinder blocks and I hope a better chimney. I'll add a photo or 2 to later.
Hello friends, I am new to ceramic! Need help!! I have a Coneare 1822D (3.3 cubic, alittle bit larger than skirt 818) coming by the end of Aug. I have been thinking about where to put it for half year;( There is a 9.4’ x 5.1’ bathroom(no one use) in my commercial studio, ceiling height is 11’, no window to outside, a normal fan on the ceiling, the flooring is tile. Wire is ok. I’ve seen youtuber put their kilns in the bathroom, get really close with everything, no window but still working fine. Please give me more professional suggestions, I have no where else to put. I rent a place, this bathroom belongs to my commercial studio, I don’t live here or use this bathroom, just work here. Thank you!
