Kilns and Firing

I use a variety of kilns:

My main workhorse is Ray Scott ‘Sayvit’ propane gas kiln, which I fire to cone 10 (about 1300°C) with a ‘reduction’ atmosphere. I also have a smaller gas kiln of a similar design.

I have a small Raku kiln made by Ray Scott (when he ran Fordham Thermal Ceramics), as well as a larger raku kiln made from an old electric kiln.

I also have a small Nabertherm electric kiln, which I use occasionally for biscuit firing and glaze tests.

Sometimes I smoke fire pots in an old oil drum, though it’s debatable whether I can call that a kiln!
