Chae, any progress on the kiln firing front? Gay

Mornin' Gay
Not really.
Called Olympic(gas kiln) and they are sending me different sized orifaces, which haven't arrived yet.
Susan at Paragon, a sweetheart of a gal, helped me recalibrate the thermocouple over the phone on the Thurs before Easter . . . will have to try it to see if this works.
The arrival of Easter delayed more attempts. Am trying to get my "positive attitude" back before the next round of "kiln efforts".
Need to call Georgies and see if i can fire their G Mix 6 at a higher/faster ramp. Susan thought that might help especially as one of the error messages is FTL (fired too long).
All in good time, i guess, but right now my mood matches the weather (which is raining) !!!
Hoping all is going splendidly with you !!!
Oh, by the way, the gas kiln firing which stalled out at 2012 degrees F -- would have produced a red (on a test cup) had it fired to temp !!! True irony: it's the only homegrown glaze in years that i didn't write down the exact ingredients !!!!
