To support my ceramics teaching I'm collecting together some on-line resources for my students:
Articles on wood kilns and firing
- Wood-fired Soda Kiln design and first firing. (885KB pdf)
- Shotley Train Kiln design and first firing. (2.1MB pdf)
The articles above are in pdf format and contain a large number of pictures. Viewing them via a dial-up connection, will be quite slow but patience should be rewarded.
To view pdf files you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader, available free from Adobe if you don't already have it.
