Wood Fired Raku

Recommended Posts

I’m now a believer!  My experiment with a wood fired Raku kiln was a success thanks to the information and suggestions from knowledgeable people on this forum. 

I ripped apart an old electric kiln and used the ceramic fiber blanket surrounding the fire brick to build a light weight kiln. Since there was no breeze the day I fired, a squirrel cage fan was used to improve air flow.

Pictures show the kiln and results.   Oh yes, the marshmallows were great!

 . . . but I'd not sure about roasting the marshmallows with a kiln constructed from an old fiber lining. 

 

And whatever ended up impregnating/contaminating the refractories in the old electric kiln.

 

best,
