Recently it has been brutally hot. If you live in Texas, you know what I mean. And all I can think about is WHEN will it cool off?
How does this relate to ceramics? Let me explain.
I work with kilns that easily reach 2232 degrees farenheit. My kiln yard is outside. The weather has been 100+ every day for who knows how long (I have lost count). This results in rolling power outages, which makes firing an electric kiln tricky. Not to mention loading and unloading a kiln in 100+ temperatures can be very dangerous. Lucky for me the only accidents I have had was cutting my foot on ceramic shards- I think somebody needs to clean my kiln yard.
Anyhow, enough venting, right? Sorry…it is just so hot that really is all I can think about!
And one last thought: does anybody else see HOW similar the inside of a firing kiln and the sun are…AHHHH HOT!!
