Yesterday we loaded up the small gas kiln.
( name is being with held to protect the innocent)
Some of the items I put back in the kiln were some of the pieces from the last load that either did not get hot enough or were just too muddy looking.
Like these mugs:
Hot spots, cold spots.
We also are going to change out the back burner in hopes that another one will burn cleaner.
We also want to move the firing time up and bump up the heat at a faster rate.
It would be great to get this down to a 8-12 hour firing.
Is this asking too much?
I know when we fire the cone 6 in the electric kiln we are doing that in about 8 hours.
I know, I know different glazes, differnt kiln and all that jazz but I really think we can shorten the fire from 16 hours.
For a baby kiln that seems a bit long.
Today is calling for gusty winds so we are waiting until Friday to light things up.
Today- time to clean up and get ready to throw more pots.
The moon this morning-interesting...
