I fired the kiln for the first time today. As I havent used it before I thought it was a good idea to do a test so just put two pieces in for a biscuit firing. Its cooling down at the moment so I’m very excited to see the results tomorrow. All seems to be well. Due to the very inquisitive mechanics, I've put a sign on the kiln. There were quite a few lingering around, warming their hands.
I also began experimenting with new designs for tealight holders. Watch this space for photos and updates.
