The kiln finally speaks

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.
