Firing An Electric Kiln

Recommended Posts

Is your kiln vented?  If yes, then leave the top down and peeps in; if not, you might want to leave the top peep out.  Lid hinges are really not designed to be propped open. 

 

My kiln is, so I leave the top closed and peeps in for both bisque and glaze firing.

My kilns have downdraft vents so for the larger during Bisque I leave the top peep open but keep them all closed for glaze firing. The small kiln I keep the peep closed at all times.

My professor in college was leaving the peeps out during the bisque and glaze firing,  He was working with low fire glazes that were mostly bright primary colors, he said he got cleaner colors leaving the peeps out.  I have a down draft system so my peeps stay in.    Denice
