Ceramic Sculptor, #tonymoorewoodfiredkiln graciously referred this kiln to me. From what I understand, a potter named, Beth has had this old electric kiln in her basement for years. The exterior is a bit rusted, however it's never been fired! It's 24" x 24" x 13.5"D. It's pretty much a baby kiln. I am so excited! I will now be able to bisque fire my sculptural bead forms and smaller sculptural forms in small batches. Over the last three years, I've observed that most pottery studios have a baby kiln along side the larger electric kilns. It's more efficient and convenient.
Beth and her potter friend, Lisa have been so kind and considerate regarding passing on knowledge on how to work this old kiln. They are bubbly and funny. They didn't want the kiln, still they were adamant about finding a home for it. Beth didn't want it to end up in a landfill.
Thank you, Tony, Beth and Lisa for your generosity and for passing the torch onto a newbie potter like me! I will keep the fire alive!
Richard and I are set to pick it up within the next couple of weeks.
Looking forward to sharing my first firing adventures.
