Don't watch the kiln, the kiln is watching you
I will first admit that I already peeked inside the kiln because I HAD to check on it. I closed the lid quickly, just as soon as I heard the first little TING! Now, the kiln is made for heat but it is not made for rapid changes in heat, so this can damage the bricks and hardware inside. I am well aware of this, and yet I almost always peek because it's like Christmas morning as a child, eager and full of wonder - what is inside the box that has been closed for the last 24 hours? Did that one really neat sculpture turn out, did the new experiment with glazes turn out? Does little red riding hood at 1/2 inch tall look totally adorable?
All these things I want to know, but I won't know for another couple hours! *glares at kiln*
