My kiln just died today. The "big" one--the one on the left.
I've had this kiln for 8 years now, and it's been with me through 5 moves across the country, from SF to MT to LA to now Boston. I knew she wouldn't last forever, but I'm a bit sad to see her go. I've been meaning to get a new one anyway, I just wasn't expecting it to happen so suddenly.
R.I.P., big kiln! It was a good run.
