I have now been asked to design a mobile gas kiln to be carried about in a 20' container that would fire eight 50+ gallon qvevri or 4 larger ones at least to bisque. Of course I have never built a kiln before. I imagine the greatest problem is to keep the kiln from grinding itself to death on the road, and of course keeping it down to a doable weight. I was thinking about building walls that could be assembled on site, then I saw John Britt's kiln made from refractory cement and I wondered if it might be the solution. He gave me some suggestions, but I would really love to hear from you guys
The person requesting the kiln design is looking for someone who wants to move to his place outside of Austin, TX, to run a studio and a really, really big kiln he plans to build. See The Qvevri Project. Is there a more appropriate place to post this information?
You guys make my day.
Go ahead and post this in the Equipment section and you'll get lots of great ideas.
