  3. Kiln

    I live in north Thailand and and would like to build a kiln that will fire up to cone 6 (if possible). In the past I have done large rice husk kilns but would like to expand my work. I do not have many options for building materials. Some of the materials I do have are brick clay (very rough), normal bricks, rice grass and husks, cement, and sand. I may be able to find fire brick in the big cities. Fuel options are propane gas (will have to order blowers which is possible), wood (but hard to find in Thailand), and I have heard of using used cooking oil which in abundance here. I would like the kiln to be at least 13 cubic foot in size, I throw large bottles. Any plans or suggestions would be very welcome. Thank you! Michael

Kilns: Why and How Sharon Art Center Campus of New Hampshire Institute of Art Professor John Baymore This one day seminar-type workshop will provide participants with a fundamental understanding of ceramic kilns and firing operations that they can bring back to their own studio operations. The presented material will cover underlying concepts that drive kiln function and operation, and how that information relates to designing, constructing, and firing them. This module will also assist participants in evaluating commercial units for potential purchase. Presentations will touch on gas, wood, and electric fired kilns, giving a diverse audience some practical tools. Useful handouts and a copy of one kiln plan will be provided to all participants.
