Building a bisque kiln [electronic resource] /
Abstract (Summary)The electric kiln in the studio of the ceramic artist is one of many important and significant pieces of equipment. It is the goal of this paper to provide a guide to anyone who needs to repair, rebuild, or build from scratch an entire kiln. These step-by-step instructions for building a kiln from bought materials will provide the information necessary to fix minor and major kiln rebuilding projects . This manual/ guide is the result of researching kilns , both in terms of doing extensive reading on the subject and gaining real experience. Found in the way of rebuilding/rebricking heavily abused kilns, rewiring, and setting up kilns for the first time with the hard wiring from the electrical entrance to the receptacle. Doing this hands -on research allowed me to find out how the kiln works, how it's assembled and to learn what procedures it's designed to execute.
