The kiln finally speaks

Melissa is working on her kiln, but the kiln is working on her too…

Few dramas with the new kiln. At this stage it likes to function only when on a lean. TurboNerd has been contracted to look into it, with the first attempt suffering from a bit of mis-diagnosis. Tonight we hopefully will come up with the goods.

In the mean time, I did manage to fire some test pieces on Monday. Yes, this if from a steel (tin) can. It’s a great material! And chickpea salad makes a great lunch…

Anamika got me onto this material while I was in Bristol. She kindly let me keep a couple of her samples. I think they’re beautiful.
