I used to admonish an aquaintance who fired a smallish Wood
Kiln in a suburban area...to wear the silly "Lobster" apron
and Chief's Hat...and have a pic-nic table spread out with
probable condiments...and Beer...
I think he did do this eventually, and enjoyed it...
Neighbors just thought he was 'odd'...

it is very important for all of us that fire kilns
to be very, very careful with what we say, do and
expose ourselves to with our kilns.
this event with susan's kiln can spread fast to
other areas. people become fanatical about air
quality. most know nothing about it, but become
instant experts....and raise hell.
i have said many times...lay low. be quiet.
do not cause waves. EDUCATE, you never know who is
going to kick you in the crotch. and remember, wood kilns
obvious..flames, smoke fumes....it is hard to hide.
`HELL, THAT GAL CANTA BE FIRING WITH WOOD, oh, my wood
stove, fire place, going all year long...no, that ainta much
it is like populations trends, most people are still using
