I love to see crafters wishlists at Christmas because they more often than not have tools on there!
I must have been good this year because Father Christmas brought me a new kiln (a Paragon SC2), kiln gloves, a kiln shelf set and a new tumbler!
I already own a kiln and it's a dinky little one but with an enormous cavity to fire jewellery (much bigger than the mini kilns I've seen for sale) but the main drawback is that it didn't have a timer and just wasn't quite big enough for when I ran workshops and needed to put more than 12 items in the kiln at any one time. The timer was less of an issue for me if I'm honest because I'm always so impatient to see whether the kiln Gods have been kind to me or not that I almost sit on top of it until the "cooking" has finished! However, having a timer is useful.
I'm going to photograph both kilns side by side and do a review on positives and negatives in a few days and am looking forward to using my Christmas kiln as well for a test piece!
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas too and received lots of lovely tools!
