I have one of those little microwave glass kilns. Every time I make something, the edges are very sharp. Does it do the same thing in an electric kiln? The stuff I've seen made in those seems to be smoother.

Sometimes you get sharp edges in an ordinary kiln too. You can grind them down and then polish if it's really serious or you can sand them down with a diamond sanding pad.

I have something called a diamond bar that I think is used for sharpening lawnmower blades. It's great for taking a snaggy little bit off the edges. You could always invest in a grinder, too, or get one used.
