4.0 out of 5 stars Good as far as it goes
I should first point out that the review which complains that the kiln is too big, at 1.7 cubic metres, for the hobby potter is wrong. The book gives descriptions of how to build three kilns. The third has a packing space measuring 68cm x 46cm x 83cm which is around 0.3 cubic metres.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too
Too big. Too expensive.

That describes the project in this book.

The average "hobby " potter does not require a 1.7 cubic metre kiln ,

probably costing way over 5000 euro's , if not double that.

A guide to build a kiln one fifth the seize of the one in the book
would benefit a lot more people.

This review is from: Kiln Construction: A Brick by Brick Approach (Paperback)
I should first point out that the review which complains that the kiln is too big, at 1.7 cubic metres, for the hobby potter is wrong. The book gives descriptions of how to build three kilns. The third has a packing space measuring 68cm x 46cm x 83cm which is around 0.3 cubic metres.

Having read the book cover to cover I would be quite happy to embark on building one of the kilns described. The photos and computer generated images make understanding how the brickwork is laid a doddle. However the ironwork remains a challenge despite there being a parts list. In fact the ironwork looks like the trickiest aspect of building these kilns so it would have been a useful addition to have some diagrams suitable for taking to a fabricator specifying exactly what is needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic book., 18 Sept. 2014
This review is from: Kiln Construction: A Brick by Brick Approach (Paperback)
This book has very clear instructions and makes building a kiln achievable. I have just done my first firing in the wood fired version with hardly any wood and excellent results. Joe very quickly responds to any queries and was a delight to deal with.
I can't recommend this book highly enough for anybody serious about pottery.
The book was easy to follow and the kiln a joy to fire! Thank you Joe.
