Cleaning the Murrine fusing vessel and the Caldera Kiln

When we finish pulling murrine we need to know how to clean the kiln and the murrine fusing vessel.  Here is a youtube video about my process of pulling murrine and how to clean up the kiln and fusing vessel.  Links to all the tools and equipment I use are included.  
Hepa Vacuum I use to clean up glass dust and fiber paper residual.
Welding blankets  kevlar works to 1200 and black carbon blanket protects to 1800 degrees. Perfect to protect the glass or welding studio floor.
Sponge Clamp I use to grip murrine out of the kiln
