Kiln Academy with Kiln Frog’s Gail Stouffer – September 23

A view of the interior of Bullseye Glass Portland

Join Gail Stouffer from for a frank discussion on the topic of KILNS—how to make a smart decision in purchasing the kiln that’s right for you, and what you need to know once you own it.

Through presentation and discussion, Gail will cover issues simple and complex, including: 

  • kiln parts (which part does what)
  • kiln construction
  • new technologies
  • controllers
  • electrical considerations
  • kiln placement and safety
  • troubleshooting
  • maintenance
  • hype vs reality

There will be plenty of Q&A time for specific questions. So come prepared! If you are in the market for a new kiln, or if you are a seasoned kiln owner and want to know more about how to lengthen the life of the tool you use in your practice, this is a discussion you won’t want to miss! Gail will be supported during the session by Ted Sawyer, Director of Research and Education at Bullseye Glass. Participants will receive a copy of the 75-page Kiln Academy E-Book reference guide upon attending the presentation.
