Yes! And here is the glorious thing:
I have been running the prefiring program today. It's not quite done yet, and it shows a beautiful glow from the beaddoor that is slightly ajar to let out the fumes.
It has been running for 4½ hours, and even with an empty kiln I can sympathise with all the stories I have heard of beadmakers opening the kiln too early :)
I got the kiln at Uterm in Sweden. I finally ordered it and 2 weeks later it was ready. Then 1 week for the payment to pass the banking system, one week in transit and now it is here :) Yay! I have great plans :)
It says on their website, that kilns are build to size, so I asked for a deeper version of their BA-2. I now have an inner area of 30x30cm (1'x1') and it is huge! I have all kinds of posibilities open to me :)
I completely forgot to ask if I could get a kilnshelf and a mandrel rack for it, so I guess I'll need that before I get too busy. I might not be able to contain myself though. I may have to fire it up tomorrow already as my parents have requested the presence of their grandchildren. Score! I'll have several childfree hours tomorrow.
