Test Kiln Build

Notes: Based on the simple little test kiln designed by Karatsu Pots (original blog post here), I made this little test kiln to begin testing some reduction firing techniques. The fire bricks I had on hand are battered and bruised so there's a fair amount of heat leaking. Future upgrades should improve on this although first firings have been promising. Propane fired and running for about 4hrs the first pieces reached vitrification at thin sections, however the thicker sectioned haven't matured.
