Kiln Elements & Blogging
Last month I put this picture up and asked for advice.
"Were my Elements about to pack up"?, I asked,
and how can I get them back into shape.
were these elements a reflection of myself after the Christmas Festivities.
I heated the kiln up to 75oc over a 90 min period,

Two firings later and they are still in place.

and so on...
So thank you for all of your help and advice
