I'm nearing the end of a glazing cycle and loading the kiln as i go. it's a 60 cu. ft. kiln and holds a lot of pots. i do all my own work and it seems to take forever to get the pots in, the door bricked up and get the thing going. i think it would be great to have a smaller kiln and be able to fire more often. i always have glaze tests in every firing and am anxious to see the results.
i DO have a small guitar amp. it's a Fender Blues Jr. and it's all of 15 watts. that's not much when you consider players like Hendrix used STACKS of amps of 100 watts or more apiece. the thing about small amps is that you can really drive the power tubes 'til they distort and yield that " break-up " tone. ahh ...... the quest for tone. not too far removed from the constant tweaking of glazes. it's all the same to me, anyway. " lookin' for the heart of Saturday night ".
as soon as i can get this firing done there will be new images of pots to put on here. 'til then
happy trails ......
