Re: {Spam?} Kiln Recommendations

I know that I like the L and L kiln. Make sure to get a digital one.
They are so easy to fire. The really nice thing about the L & L is the
elements are really easy to change when you have to do it. It has
different sizes that you can order. You will have to see what size will
work for you.

Aloha All,
Can anyone tell me how much it costs to purchase a kiln? What type
you recommend for a small art class? Or for personal use?

I am seriously considering writing a grant for the purchase of kiln and
to know expert advice as to what is available, preferred, and works
best for
small class sizes. I have about 10 to 20 students per grade level from
thru 8th, a total of 62 students. I saw a very small compact 120Volt
at the ceramic shop that I picked up my clay from for $500. I don't
remember the name of the brand but it was rather cute. The manager
told me
that it was made for classrooms and apartments. It would only hold
pieces nothing large which is about where I am in my ceramic lessons
the studens. I don't envision doing larger pieces but that might
change if
the Admnistration gives me more $$$. :-) Don't we all need that.
