Hi! I plan to build a small gas kiln to start my first experiments in ceramics.
I researched a bit, flipped through some books, and it seemed accessible to me to build a little double crossdraft kiln.
This model of kiln, known in Japanese as itte-koi-gama (いってこい窯) , is popular as a wood kiln (the Phoenix kiln or Philosopher’s Kiln) but little used on gas.
It looks like a plan for a small gas kiln was published on Building Your Own Kiln, Three Japanese Potters Give Advice And Instructions , but I didn't have access to this book.
So looking at some kilns over the internet
