Default Kiln Advice

Hello all : ) After lamping for a few months , my partner and I are
ready for a kiln . Any input , advice , recommendations would truly be
appreciated . What a dizzying array of kilns there are ... capabilities
, size , wiring requirements . We are two ladies torching in a detatched
garage , with normal household current . We're not doing any fusing ,
but who knows what'll pique our interest next week ? Thanks bunches for
any help .

Default Kiln Advice

I have a Jen Ken kiln with a digital controller which I use for
fusing. I've been very pleased with it. I bought it from Centre de
Verre. There's a lot of information on the warmglass site on kilns -
www.warmglass.com. While a lot of the info will be primarily about
fusing, it will give you an idea of which brands are good and which
ones to avoid. www.isgb.org gives a lot of kiln info in their forum
archives.

Default Kiln Advice

I bought a kiln from Arrow Springs 4 years ago and (knock wood) haven't had
a bit of trouble with it. It's a firebrick kiln with a bead door that also
has the option of being closed for fusing. I can do beads, PMC, fusing in
it. Very dependable and (what's the word) = multitasking... (senior moment)

HTH

live and be well,
Christy
