Demystifying Kiln Myths: The Truth About Holes and Explosions in Ceramics by @juneandgem"
@juneandgem debunking kiln myths: No need for holes in fully closed ceramic forms to prevent explosions! Their theory challenges conventional teachings, suggesting it's more about risk avoidance in community kilns. Explaining that explosions result from moisture and trapped steam, they assert a hole isn't necessary if the piece is 100% dry. Tested and proven, they emphasize that a dry piece won't explode. Humorously mentioning "butthole" poking for fun, they add a touch of amusement to the ceramic-making process. Now onto making cats and encouraging others to explore diverse animal creations using this technique. Tag @juneandgem if you share your own inspired creations!
