Why does my kiln make a buzzing sound? Here are some of the sounds that a kiln makes The heating elements hum when they turn on.That is because they vibrate in the brick grooves due to magnetism between the coils. This sound is normal.

I was so taken by it, that I asked him for a kiln for Christmas. Who or what inspires you? Discovering or making up new techniques inspire me the most, but I am also inspired by horses, animals and the sea. You seem to be inspired by Southwestern culture and style, tell us more about that. I grew up in Imperial Beach, CA, which is a border town to Mexico. I used to body surf at the
