Marcia Selsor posted a topic in Ceramic Events of InterestI am preparing to go to Italy to La Meridiana for my workshop. Here are examples of what I'll be teaching Obvara on the left and foil sagger on the right will update our experiences during the course. Shipped my supplies 2 weeks ago. Marcia
Fired up this experimental kiln. It is made of steel flashing, 2" of ceramic fiber insulation all around. Fiber treated with rigidizer. ceramic button and anthill wire used to additionally secure the fiber to the lid. Steel bands make the handles and bottom rigid. At 1500 degrees F I could touch the exterior wall. It was tepid..like bath water. Not burning hot. Very happy with this. I will take it yo Antoinette's to use for demonstrating alternative firing processes.I have been thinking about making a small kiln like this for faster tests in alternative firing processes.
