Best of all I have been given a free kiln!
It is currently not working but I have not given up hope. The kiln is a model 181 Skutt and it is old from 1960-1979. I was given this from the Beverly Art Center, I answered an ad on Craigslist! They told me that if I can get it working it can be used to slump glass as well as fire clay. Of course this picture is off the Skutt website and is a new small kiln but this will give you an idea of what I am working with size wise. I am pretty excited.
We are getting ready for our Grand Opening and we are also going to have classes again.
