Firing

I love firing kilns as much as I love creating pieces to fire.It is just a different kind of magic - Heat magic. The combination of time, temperature and soda transforms dusty clay into glassy permanence. Amazing! Watching the kiln glow with heat on a dark night has a satisfaction that most potters share. My soda kiln is basically the same as most gas kilns.It has extra port holes around the kiln that allow soda to be added to the atmosphere to achieve the effect I am going for at the time. The kiln interior was sprayed with a soda resistant coating to protect it from build up of glaze. The walls are double thick soft brick. This thickness gives a nice slow cool and gives me a couple of days to clean up the studio and look forward to the opening of a new load. Last firing complete 04/29/06
