The Importance of Spare Parts

This is one of those stories that you don't believe... until it happens to you!  A few years ago, we had a visiting instructor with a full class of students teaching at our studio when the kiln just decided it wanted to be a rebel. There was a tiny waft of smoke, and then a error signal from the controller. Part of me wanted to freak out and run around the room with my arms waving while screaming expletives at the top of my lungs as this was the only kiln we had that was large enough to fire the...

Don't be a gambler with your kiln..

I'm declaring November "National Kiln Problem Month!" Murphy's law says that whenever you need your kiln most, and are firing the most, that's just when it's going to have a problem.

Hi Everyone! Its been a while since I’ve had a lot to say about the kiln world.

The Importance of Spare Parts... and other stories I didn't believe until it happened to me!

A few weeks ago I had a minor traumatic incident. A visiting instructor was teaching at my studio and the kiln just decided to rebel. There was a tiny waft of smoke, and then a error signal from my controller. Part of me wanted to freak out and run around the room with my arms waving while screaming expletives at the top of my lungs. Luckily, I realized I had an audience so, I only did that in my head.
