Aloha Beachbumz! I just went through your thread, you do amazing work! I love them all! Your little Kiln is on my wish list. You said it was 110, does it fire up to cone 5-6? Great work, I aspire to be as worthy as all of you. I finished another piece today but, to tried to post tonight.

Mahalo,
Linda

Aloha Linda, Mahalo! Sorry I've been sorta busy at work, at home, etc.. etc.. etc.. Our little kiln is just that, It will fire only up to about cone 03.. We have a friend that has about 4 different size kilns that we can use to High-fire if we need to but so far the low fire is working well for us.. It's really cool because the cost of electricity here on the island is insane and the 110 really helps keep the price down..
Linda, your miniatures you've been making are awesome, keep posting pictures I love to follow your thread..

Here's a few I pulled out of the kiln last time around...







Aloha!

This is the Kaoha bowl that I posted earlier in the bisque firing that I made for Wendy and Dan now all glazed up in a Jungle Brown Woodgrain with a Coral Reef inner..
It was fun to make but I think I'm done with bowls for awhile..





Aloha

Scott, the bowl is here, it is perfection. I've hidden it away for Christmas. You are so good at this. I can see all the detail work and I appreciate it so much. Multiple Cheers, Wendy

Beachbumz you are a Master, absolutely incredible detail! Love your work! I didn't think about your cost of electric on the Island, I'm sure it is out of sight! I wonder if someone could come up with a solar kiln? Wouldn't that be awesome!

Mahalo's Linda.. Very Far from a master at this but I was extremely stoked on the way it came out..
Having our own kiln definitely lets us play around a little more and learn new tricks..
A solar kiln would be so awesome!! I wish we had solar at our house because the electricity is unbelievably high here and going up again as I just watched the news tonight.. Dam...

Here's the second Tongo Da'Beachcomber mug I made, slightly larger float this time..



Ok I gotta get back to work on #3 now that the Keiki are asleep..

Aloha!
