A New Gas Kiln

We got a new gas kiln! It's a Formi kiln from Italy. 

It's much bigger than our other glaze kilns, So big in fact, it arrived with it's own forklift to get it off the truck and into our building!

There was a bad moment when we thought it wouldn't fit on the elevator...

but it just made it! (phew)

We cleared out a space for it and got it all set up. 

It can hold 3 to 4 times as much tile as our regular glaze kilns which are electric but first we'll have to run lots of experiments to see how our glaze colors react to the gas firing. 
Our R&D department is ready to put it to the test! 

Come visit our showroom and take a tour of our factory in the heart of Portland, OR. 
We'd love to show you around.
