shifty kiln..

I have fired my kiln about 15 times now and have really noticed some 'shifting o' the brick'. My frame is welded and bolted to the concrete pad but inevitably...when temperatures are over 2000 degrees f. things are going to move.

My reduction has been quite spotty and unpredictable so I decided to stuff any significant spaces with refractory fiber and see if that helps keep the air out..stay tuned, I hope to fire again on Sunday.
