Kilns, for those who aren’t familiar with them, are used for hardening clay after it has been molded into the desired shape. Kilns, resembling large ovens, heat up to high temperatures internally and harden whatever happens to be inside of them, most notably clay, material used to make bricks, or something equally malleable that needs to be hardened. What comes out of the kiln is one solid mass that melds together all parts of the piece, making it difficult to break but easy to paint, once glazed.
Kilns are most often seen in:
- Potters’ workshops
- Schools (for art classes)
- Ceramics and Pottery-Minded Businesses
The final step before glazing and designing, kilns have become an essential part of pottery and are more frequently requested by residences and business alike.
