Microwave kilns


I have been using microwave kiln at the studio I teach at and the new one I have at home, the old much abused (not by me) ones at the studio dont seem to be as fussy as the new one, someone told me that they need to be really well seasoned.

I do the same firing schedule in both places and it seems to work well, I fire for one minete and then check every 30 seconds, a lot of stoping and lifting but it seems to work, we still have the odd explosion but that is becasue the glass is being shocked.  I also use thinfire kiln paper and not the paper that comes with the kiln, it gives you a smoother finsh on the back and seems to just work better.
