Made from an Upcycled Oil Drum, Double Fibre Lined, Complete with 48mm Burner. Red or Blue colours.


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 comes ready to use and includes a  48mm PropaneTorch Burner, complete with regulator & hose, flame intensity adjustment, and spanners. This burner does not have a flame cut out sensor. You are free to buy your own burner should you prefer, a reduction will be made if you choose to do this.

A Fibreboard 14.5" Kiln Shelf and supporting fire bricks, damper pad and flame deflector. The lid fibre is secured with ceramic buttons & nichrome wire. Plus there is a side inlet for a thermocouple, if you want to use one (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 23kg, about the same as 2 bags of clay, you can use this kiln on your own, the lid being 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. I offer full support if you have a problem or are unsure what to do, simply phone or email me for assistance, I am quite happy to help. Details will be given on purchase.
If you collect I will talk you through everything.
Size external: 66cm High x 60cm Wide.  Internal : 40cm High x 46cm Wide Thats inside 16"H x 18"W, giving a pot placing area of approx 2.5 cu.ft.   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 over 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 so are all very much the same. My latest kilns are a nice shiny RED colour. Please note these are made from upcycled oil drums, and so do have ocassional dinks and dents, 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 over 79 times ! Kilns Advertised elsewhere.  Happy Rakuing !

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 £6.50
