Leave the kilns alone. Of all the tools we “do not train enough on”, the kilns are not on that list.
3D, laser, welding, plasma cutter, metal lathe, vinyl cutter. I see the question pop up of “When can I get trained to use…”
The kilns have NEVER been on that list. NEVER.
Firing is an art. It takes time and dedication to get it right. Kilns run for hours through a firing cycle. If you have not experienced HOURS of your hard work being destroyed by an incompetent kiln run, you should NOT be talking about kiln training because you know nothing about it. (Yes, I have that experience, more than once, sigh. Far from DMS.)
I am not saying there should be not be kiln training. What I am saying is Fired Arts is currently doing a great job. Leave that one alone and work on a real issue.
