Going Big

     I have taken the plunge. Vcella Kilns is custom building my new kiln. I liked the size of the B-16 but I don't need a vent hole as it let's out much needed heat and I don't do wax burn out so the carbon build up isn't an issue. I also wanted a 240v so I could get it up and going faster. With enamels we don't need to ramp the heat up or down slowly. We heat up the kiln to 1500 degrees (give or take depending on the color and affect we are going for) and the pieces are put in and taken out of the kiln while the kiln is hot.  The interior of the new kiln is 15" x 15" x 9" high.

     I received the kiln much sooner than expected so now I have to wait on my appointment with the electrician. More on the kiln later when it is up and running. Stay tuned...
