After doing this for the first time, based off the video I have determined that the child in said video is a robot.

It gets sooooooo hot you cannot stand anywhere close to it, yet alone reach into it with pliers.

I built a crucible from a steel pipe. welded a plate on one end, and lined it with a fire resistant clay. I welded two pegs onto the sides so I could reach in with a double hook to retrieve it.

I know from experience how hot those things get I have enough fun with my little kiln I use for pewter!! I do have to say that I like the simplicity of using the blow lamp, last time I was playing with a Kiln that was hot enough for brass I had to use hand bellows to get it hot enough lol
