Fingers and toes crossed.Love your flower too. Hippeastrum? Or something from the clivea family?
Thanks EC... it is a type of clivea... it is closer to red than orange and the flowers are larger and more bell shaped than the common orange one... this is a self sown one that I put into a pot.The firing cooled by this afternoon to have a look and appears OK.
Hope the firing went well for you. I currently have top loading electric kilns, but have just started having some thoughts about buying a front loading electric kiln, because of the shoulder troubles I have been having. I noticed that yours is a Woodrow kiln, we can get those over in New Zealand and just wondered if you had any advice about them? Do you ever fire yours above 1200 degrees C? Is it nice and even firing?
Hi PeterThe bisque went well. A Family situation is stopping me from getting my glaze firing done but hope to glaze tomorrow and fire on Sunday.It is a great little kiln and I regularly fire to 1280C..It is a single phase and has a dedicated line from the power box.Runs off a 15amp plug instead of the household 10amp plug.Also the pottery group I belong to has a Woodrow of a larger size that fires to 1300C and has been chugging along for over 10 years with minor repairs to elements and the controller.The front loading is better on the back unless you overstretch putting the higher shelves in. Good luck with your choices.
Hi Anna,Thank you for the information about the kiln, it is good to know that it will get to the advertised temperature. I certainly am giving serious thought to one as it will make things considerably easier than my current situation of bending over top loading kilns and lifting heavy kiln shelves in and out.
