According to Wikipedia – a kiln is a thermally insulated chamber, a type of oven, that produces temperatures sufficient to complete some process, such as hardening, drying, or chemical changes. Kilns have been in use for hundreds of years to turn objects made from clay into pottery, tiles, and bricks. Kilns are a vital part of the production of all ceramics. Pottery pieces require high temperatures so chemical and physical reactions will occur to permanently alter the unfired body. In the case of pottery, clay materials are shaped, dried and then fired in a kiln. The final characteristics are determined by the composition and preparation of the clay body and the temperature at which it is fired. As a beginner in pottery, there is no better feeling than owning your ceramic kiln. But some major considerations should not be overlooked when purchasing your kiln. You will need guidance so you won’t get the wrong kiln. A lot of potters have purchased a glass kiln instead of a ceramic kiln. Although they can be used interchangeably, I will still advise you to get the right kiln.
