In other news, I picked up an electric kiln this week. I've been looking for a used one for a couple years but I had a pretty long and picky list of what I wanted. My patience paid off and I was able to pick up a computer controlled Skutt 1227 for an extremely small amount of money. It came from an elementary school that was having mandatory equipment replacement and was used at most 4 times a year. It was a 3 phase 240 which is an cheap style to rewire as the elements don't need to be replaced, but lo and behold when I got home it turned out that it had already been rewired at point in time. Score one for the home team. The pieces I do with multiple layers of slip don't take to raw glazing so this will be a useful tool for me. I don't know why I haven't taken a picture of it yet, but here it is tarped up in my truck.
My kickstarter is over in 6 days. I am currently $480 short of my stretch goal which will help with a number of additional expenses for the kiln.
