Well I have run into a little stumbling block with the gas kiln construction. We started digging the footing to pour the concrete slab yesterday and hit a hollow shaft 12 inches down that housed pipes for our waste system. We have this weird system that has to pump the waste uphill because of our rocky and sloping land and the septic fields and pipes seem to be everywhere. We have walked all over this property and can't find a flat place except where the septic fields are or where pipes are very likely laid in the ground.
At this point, I am thinking that maybe I should just buy a Skutt and figure out how to use electric fired glazes. I know very little about cone 04 and cone 6 and would have to do a lot of testing but it might be easier than trying to locate this kiln right now. I'm just going to pause and try to rethink this. It's never simple, is it?
