The Mythical and Magical Seahorse

I just wondered if it's considered safe to use a small kiln (like a Paragon) in an apartment? Does anyone have experience with this?

I want to make jewellery so they will be small pieces. The paragon I've looked at (the blue one; firefly" is one possibility) runs on a regular household 120 volt current.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I've heard of people using small kilns in many locations, as well as bringing a small kiln to classes.  I would imagine that as long as the area is ventilated, firing in an apartment would be fine.  Best answer:  talk to the dealer/manufacture of the kiln and ask that specific question.  Maybe if you have a balcony and could fire outside, or maybe on the stove with the hood vent running..... and yes, I'm just throwing ideas out there.  I would really chat with the manufacture even if its just to email their customer service department.

Good luck!
