Book Description

28 Feb 2002 Ceramics Handbooks
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars All you need to know to get started. 1 Aug 2001
This book is a must for any potter of any level, from novice to expert. The author covers all types of kiln from wood burning brick kilns to ceramic fibre kilns. The only thing I found lacking was the detail for the ceric fibre kilns, but you do get a good idea of how it is all done. A definate for the studio.
