“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."

Kiln Lid, underside fibre held in place with ceramic buttons. Lid weight 4.5 kg.
Carry handles on either side.
Carry Handle & 10mm Hole for your thermocouple.
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. My tongs have an 8mm forged steel pivot, much much stronger, are not made in China and will last a lifetime.
£58 a pair, in stock to collect, or I can send them for £7.50
