I had a love-hate relationship with my kiln until I figured out that the clay I was using wasn't compatible with the glaze I was using, which was causing really inconsistent results. I thought because it said on the glaze jar "works with any clay" meant that the glaze works with any clay...I guess not!! I switched glazes and I now love my kiln. I am just happy to finally have some beads to work with! I am hoping to have new jewelry on the website soon!!
