Frack the damn kiln.

Well… we’ll see how this turns out, but at least I gave it a 10 hour candle. In my tied state last night I somehow missed putting in one of the temerpature steps. So at this point I know it took 12 hours to fire my kiln bisq. 10 hours of that was candle. … I don’t think the sculpture is going to survive. ergh.

At least I can’t blame anyone else but myself.

The Glaze kiln errored out (again) at 2159, which is 9 degrees hotter than its supposed to have gone. I think I’ve finally figured out the mystery of the large kiln’s errors. Its not controlling the climb down, it is trying to heat the kiln down to temerpature. I think this might be a computer error, so maybe in May they can get that looked at. I’ll mention it to the owner anyhow.

Today is a lot of decorating and a visit to a nutritionist for my husband. Should be fun.
