“Hi Tim, I cannot tell you what fun we had yesterday.  It was the most successful raku firing ever and I have done about 5 with local potters. The kiln heated really evenly and very quickly.  I had a 6kg bottle of propane,we did five firings and there is still about a third left.We used a raku glaze called Iris and it created the nicest smooth lustre ever, and gave us huge confidence.  So next to work on the crackle glazes.

Still buzzing today.  Your instructions and pictures were spot on.  Thank you again.”                  Karen G,   Chichester.

 

 

 "Thank you for the marvelous kiln. I can’t wait to get going with it! Thanks also for the care you took with packaging and labeling. It’s made set up very easy. The guidance notes are very comprehensive and confidence-inspiring."

RAKU KILN £395

Made from an Upcycled Oil Drum, this Raku Kiln is double lined with 2" (50mm) of the safe `S` type ceramic fibre. (2 X 25mm) It`s ready to use and includes a 48mm Basic Propane Burner complete with regulator, hose, & flame adjuster & spanners. This is a starter type burner & does not have a flame cut out sensor. You can buy your own burner if you prefer, a £30 reduction is made if you do this.

A Fibreboard 14.5" x 1" Kiln Shelf, far more durable than conventional shelves, plus supporting fire bricks. Damper pad and flame deflector. The lid fibre is secured with ceramic buttons, adhesive & special wire. There is a side hole for a 10mm thermocouple,  (pyro/thermo not included). 

Guidance notes are provided, plus my own Raku Glaze Recipe which is tried and tested. The lid and main chamber have carry handles to make moving the kiln that little bit easier. Although it is not heavy, weighing a total of 21kg, you can use this kiln on your own, the lid weighs 4.5kg. so very easy to lift off at the right moment. I have been a professional potter for 43 years, & have fired Raku now for over 25 years. I run very popular Raku Days at my home studio. This design of kiln is well proven, and provides an affordable, portable option to other Raku kiln providers. You can also Biscuit fire with this kiln, guidance provided. I offer full support if you have a problem or are unsure what to do, simply phone or email for assistance, I am happy to help. Details given on purchase. 
 
Size external: 66cm High x 60cm Wide. Total weight 21kg. Internal : 40cm High x 46cm Wide Thats inside 16"H x 18"W, giving a pot placing area of approx 2.5 cu.ft.  71 Litres. Available for collection, but I can send it UK Mainland with a recognised carrier for £45 which could be less than the petrol to collect ! Please contact me for further details.
 
I accept card payments on the phone or on collection. Bank transfer payments are now popular, details provided.
I do not expect payment until the kiln is collected, or ready to send. The kiln in the picture will not be the one you buy, but I make them all to the same specification and are all very much the same. Please note these are made from upcycled oil drums, and so do have ocassional dinks and dents, & may not be perfectly round,which do not affect their functionality. The kiln shelf is made from Fibreboard. I have run extensive trials with this board and found it to be far less vunerable to cracking than conventional shelves. This I believe is a new innovation, meaning the shelf life is greatly increased and less vunerable to breakage. In trials I fired the test shelf over79 times !Also sold separately. Happy Rakuing !

48mm Torch Burner . Angled to direct flame onto deflector.

If you want to buy one of my kilns and are not able to collect,  I can send it to you.

It will come in quite a large box via  recognised carrier, but for only £45 it could be less than the fuel to come here !

View of kiln with shelf in place.  Carry Handles on either side.

 

 Kiln Lid, underside fibre held in place with ceramic buttons.   Lid weight 4.5 kg.

Carry handles on either side.

My own Fibre Board Shelf was fired 79 times before finally giving up !!

I turned it over every so often to reduce warpage. Both sides  were batwashed.

Hand Forged Raku Tongs. 10mm Steel x 1M Long, Jaws open to a maximum 21cm. Beautifully made by a local blacksmith, these tongs have the `feel` that you need when pulling hot pots from your kiln. The Jaw ends have flat `v` shaped teeth to minimise any tong marks on the glaze. The 1M length means that your safety is not compromised. There are cheaper tongs about, but they tend to have a 4mm pop riveted  pivot point, which through experience fails after a while. These tongs have a 10mm forged steel pivot, much stronger,  are not made in China and will last a lifetime.

£40 a pair, and if you are not able to collect I can post them for £7.50

Please contact me to purchase.
