Cooking in Your Kiln- Yes, You Read It Right

Earlier this month, I posted on facebook that I was curious how others had used their kiln besides for their art. I received a lovely assortment of responses...

Besides the typical form for heating drinks or keeping them warm, there were quite a few folks who make pizza in theirs.

But it was intriguing to read about some of the other creative answers...Gwynne has cooked a turkey in hers. Rashan has made beer can chicken and was so sweet to pass on this website which gives recipes for cooking a turkey and also for a New York Steak (pictured above). I can't wait to try them!

Of course other glass peeps mentioned that they use their torches for cooking too- hot dogs, s'mores, pop tarts and creme brullee. And one of my favorite responses, this one from Leah, mentioned that she had heard that an artist did a demo where she cast ladles of glass out of the furnace and then cooked pancakes on it. Oh, how I'd love to see that.

Now, one more thing...if you haven't friended me on facebook yet, I really wish you would. There's a great network of artists there and what fun it is to see what everyone is doing. Just click the link above.
