I've done a little bit of kilnwork before, but have never managed to get
access to a kiln regularly. A friend has offered me a loan of her ceramics
kiln (she mainly fires tiles) fitted with a kiln sitter.
I appreciate that this isn't the ideal method of learning, but at present
the possibility of regular kiln access is tempting. Is anyone using a kiln
sitter set up to fuse/slump/cast glass? I'm happy to experiment, and can be
in attendance while I fire, but a few initial pointers would be great? I'll
gladly post my results/progress for anyone in a similar position...
