Kilns & Supplies, Gas & Electric

Firing clay is the essential step that transforms dirt to stone. The earth's elements are changed to beautiful glass (glaze) with the application of a lot of heat.
The Four common temperatures that we use are:

  • Native Clay Cone 016 to 010 or  1420 to 1650 F
  • Low fire Ceramics  Cone 06-04  or 1828 to 1945 F
  • Mid Range Cone 5-6 or 2167-2232 F
  • High Fire Cone 10 2345 F

We use electric kilns because they are convenient all are computer controlled and very reliable.

Gas kilns need to be monitored for the whole firing. And can be used where a lot of electricity is not available.

  • Gas Kilns

    Gas Kilns & Raku Kilns

    Gas kilns are necessary for cone ten, as they don't wear out. Reduction effect and flashing make cone 10 pottery special. 

    Raku Kilns make the craft of Raku possible. In Raku you glaze a piece of bisque, quickly fire up to cone 06 or until the glaze melts. Open the kiln when it is red hot and put the glowing pot in a trash can of flammable paper or leaves. The resulting combustion reduces the metals copper and iron to the metallic form; creating cool effects. The smoke also colors any bare clay black and accents any cracks in the glaze as black crackle pattern.

    • Gas Usage for Olympic Raku & Torchbearer Kilns
    • Low Pressure Regulator (Purchase From Your Gas Supplier)
    • Propane - 11" Water Column (Water Column is the Amount of Gas Pressure)
    • Natural Gas - 7" Water Column
    • ¾" Pipe Line (Purchase From Your Gas Supplier)

    Propane

    Olympic gas kiln burners are factory set for use on either propane or natural gas determined by the customer's order. If propane is used, your tank must have a low-pressure regulator like those on a camper or trailer. If an adjustable regulator is used, approximately ½ pound of pressure is necessary. The larger the tank the better; however, a five (5) gallon tank is the minimum size for the 1827G or 18 Raku and a 15 gallon tank is the minimum size for the 2327G/23 Raku and 2827G/28 Raku kilns. Due to gas flow, the propane tank may have a tendency to freeze solid. If ice is observed forming on the outside of the tank, water can be run over it to help keep it melted. The tank can also be lowered into a large bucket of warm water.

    Natural Gas

    A larger burner orifice in necessary when used on natural gas pressure, six (6) to eight (8) inches of water column is required. If your kiln was ordered for use on household natural gas, it is equipped this way.
