Ceramic Kilns: What buyers need to know

When you are looking for the perfect kiln, you might think there is one out there that does it all, but kilns are made for specific purposes.

How Low Voltage Affects Firing Time

Knowledge is POWER! Making sure you have the correct voltage is one of the most important factors of kiln efficiency! Plug the kiln into the correct circuit. Low voltage can double the firing time.

The electrical data plate is usually located on the side of the kiln or the switch box. Firing a 240-volt kiln on 208 volts reduces the kiln’s power by 25%. Even a small drop in voltage can affect the firing speed. Low...

Put a Ring on it!

Bullseye Glass Quick Tip: In this Quick Tip, explore the possibilities of a palette of rings capped with Opaline! As an overlay, Opaline scatters light for a dramatic impact on base colors. Note the blue hue it adds to the dark-valued green and the subtle changes with lighter-valued greens. But when held up to the light, it's as if the Opaline layer disappears! One secret of ring cutting is that the inner pieces must be slightly smaller in diameter for the best fit! A central circle cut to the same dimension as the inner ring will not fit, in the same way...
