Hot & Cold

Our town doesn’t have mains gas, so I run the kiln using LP gas cylinders. On a cold and rainy night you can get the mind boggling contrast of freezing cylinder outside...
while inside things are well over the 1000 degree (Celsius) mark. The blue colour of the flame indicates that the kiln is oxygen starved (reducing) which is essential for the development of colour in my glazes, especially the celadon greens.
