Just when I thought I had it all figured out everything turns to dust. I was thrilled when my first batch of little round tabs came out of the kiln all beautiful needing just a bit of wire brushing. The next batch was not so good. What did I do differently who the heck knows. After messing with the kiln temp and time the third batch turned out even worse, they turned to dust. Then it hit me, I was packing more in my little kiln box than I ever had before so tonight I will try again with fewer pieces on the same ramp schedule that I have used from the start and see if that isn't the problem.
For now these are all that I have gotten out of the kiln worth showing. I had such high hopes of having some of the other goodies all made up for this weekends shows but no such luck.
