total destruction

With ceramics, you get to a certain point where you feel confident in what you are doing. So - when we decided to push some of our seemingly VERY dry (but apparently not) bricks through the kiln last week, I didn't think twice about it. We were working by the kiln, and then heard a loud boom - the lid lifted off the kiln, dust went everywhere, and we were left with this....

Needless to say, we will take the kiln up a little slower next time.

I don't get it. What's the problem? All of my kilns look like that.
