The breaker blew and my kiln shut off.

Did the breaker blow as soon as you turned the kiln on, or only some time later? If it blew as soon as you turned the kiln on, you have a short somewhere in the kiln. Unplug the kiln, remove the switch box, and look for either a disconnected wire that is touching the case, or a wire with damaged insulation.

If it blew after the kiln had fired for a moment or longer, then you may have a weak breaker, or something else may be plugged into the circuit you are using for your kiln.

Voltage fluctuates from time to time in most areas. If the voltage in your electrical system is running a little high, the breaker could trip.

A loose connection produces heat, which can travel through the wires to the circuit breaker. If this is why your breaker tripped, the breaker panel and wall outlet cover will feel unusually warm.
