About this kiln:
Raku is an ancient Japanese technique that has been rediscovered by modern potters who appreciate its unique beauty and metallic luster and colors. The raku process involves reducing (starving the oxygen) the glazed raku pottery in combustible materials such as leaves, sawdust, newspaper, etc. When the pieces are ready to take out of the kiln, they are placed in galvanized trash containers with combustible materials and covered. Once the pieces are cooled down, they are removed from the containers, washed and reveal the rich warm effects of raku. Model comes with frame welded to firing chamber, two peephole plugs, brick for covering porthole on top during reduction, instruction manual, and warranty card.

Options for customization:
First, select the correct fuel type for your kiln’s space - propane or natural gas. Also choose whether you’d like to include the ignition ring, which makes firing more convenient. Without it, you must light each of the burners with a fire stick manually. You may also order your kiln with rolling castors, which we highly recommend. You may purchase these castors separately at a later date, but you will have to weld them to the base yourself.
