Building your own kiln need not be a daunting task. Indeed, it can be the best way to get a simple cheap kiln that fits your personal requirments. In this book, Ian Gregory discusses the different types of kilns, fuels, the materials to use, and the principles to be kept in mind for successful firing. Working drawings of many types of kilns are included and some new, experimental kilns are illustrated. This book is a must for anyone wanting to try their hand at building a kiln, whether they are ambitious amateurs or experienced potters. The Ceramics Handbooks series was conceived as an introduction to various topics and techniques relating to the use of clay. The books are aimed at the student or the practised ceramicist who is experimenting in a new area.
