So yer get yer basic model right and you stick on yer mods, it’s bound to go and look faster. That’s what you do if your male 20 something and you live for your car.
But; I am just over 30 and we’re talking kilns not cars .
My kiln at the bottom of the garden was a bit too big, it was such an investment in, gas,pots and worry.I took a drastic step and sawed off the front of it, literally. Being made of hti bricks the big breeze block saw went through it like butter.
Immediately it looked better proportioned and now maybe i’l use it a bit more, the gas was costing 200 pounds to fire it am now looking forward to firing it for the first time since the modification.
I have also concreted over the arch, with vermiculite and cement mix,this should make it weatherproof and stop the wildlife, foxes and cats scratching the insulation ( 4 inches deep ) off.
I am making some big stuff, that won’t go in my electric kiln, so those pots will be raw glazed so the next one should be,nerve wracking until 600 degrees is slowly reached.
I’l be sure to let you know how it goes.
