I have been doing ceramics on and off for decades, and my partner/first mate Karen is a glass artist. (www.karenswezey.com) Over the years, I have become familiar with kilns of various types, particularly Paragon and Skutt, and their controllers, as well as certain types of electric-wheel speed-controls.
Please contact me through the contact page above or on my cell at (707) 480 8517 to discuss your situation. Thank you.
P.S. I had the privilege of taking some pottery classes with Bruno Kark. If you have this opportunity, don’t pass it up. His studio is in Berkeley, and he teaches regularly in several East Bay communities. Bruno can be reached at http://www.brunokark.com/
