Location Oakland, California, United States
Introduction Experience: My first several years of kiln repair began while attending the California College of the Arts ceramics program. I was taken under the wing of the studio manager and instructed on firing and kiln repair for both gas and electric kilns. The following four years were spent working for a ceramics supply company repairing kilns at high schools, colleges, recreation centers, campgrounds, home studios, and professional art studios. Currently I provide independent kiln repair throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California. I've even attended kiln training at the Skutt Kiln manufacturing facility in Portland. I've seen all kinds of kilns and have experienced many kiln malfunctions. I have yet to come across a kiln I can't repair (knock on wood). 2003-2006: kiln repair as I studied ceramics at California College of the Arts 2006-2010: repairing kilns professionally at Leslie Ceramic Supply co. 2010-present: providing independent kiln repair throughout the greater Bay Area / Northern California I know a lot about kilns because I'm an artist and I use them myself. Feel free to have a look at my website to checkout the clay sculpture I do.
