Know your kiln. Really what does this mean? Everyone says here is my schedule but we know not to follow it blindly but you have to know your kiln. How am I suppose to do that without spending or losing a lot of glass/money/time???
I would like to get together and talk about knowing your kiln and make a few test tiles. I just got a new little paragon 7 kiln and am in process of trying to find the full fusing temperature. In mentioning to people about this, several thought a meetup might be helpful.
I thought we could meet at someone's house who has not fired their kiln yet learn how to approach a new kiln and maybe do a pre-fire as well as make test tiles. If no one volunteers their kiln/home we can meet at my house and look at 4 different types of kilns and 2 different types of programmable controllers.
I would love anyone who would like to add to this meetup to contact me prior to meetup, so we provide as much info as possible (email me: [masked]). I am not the expert but have been firing for a few years and think this might be good for newbies as well as review for us more experienced people in the group.
Also I am totally open to changing dates, so just making a suggestion but am out of town from mid-May till @June 2.
See you soon I hope!
