This course is the study of the basic concepts of kiln design and construction. Topics include construction materials, heat sources, kiln furniture, and site selection. This fall we will be doing conversions on old electric kilns to use them for raku, cone 6 gas/wood reduction and working on designs to use them in soda firing as well. We are also looking into building an Anagama style traditional Japanese wood fire kiln –it will be an exciting fall. This will be a fabulous time to enroll if you are interested in different firing methods.
