Current LUX Artists-in-Residence Neil Celani and PJ Hargraves are working with Rivers Metal Products to build a new gas kiln! A downdraft, soft brick reduction kiln with 14 cubic feet of stacking space powdered with Ward forced air burners (the hot rod of kiln burners!). The kiln will be capable of cone 6-10 reduction/oxidation firings. Makers of large scale clay works will appreciate the lion’s front load design that maximizes loading space with a center pivot door as well as the addition of Ransome piggy back pilot burners making long, controlled preheats possible.
Stay tuned for more details + installation in the weeks to come!
