Olympic Kilns north of Atlanta is also in close proximity to
Tennessee-unless you're in West Tennessee! I have one at school and one at
home and have been very pleased with both. I have an oval kiln at home
which allows for large amounts of small objects or if you make larger
sculptures, it's terrific.
I have found Olympic very nice to deal with, and since they are close, I
didn't have to pay shipping charges, but this was 20 years ago.
Below is an e-mail I received today from the Georgia Clay listserv which
you might find helpful:
I am looking to sell my bisque kiln. It is an Olympic model 2827 (specs
below). While it will fire to ^8, I have only ever fired it for bisque at
^06. The stainless steel jacket is tarnished a bit, but it is in excellent
operating order. It was rewired and received new elements a couple years
ago. It lists new for $1925. I am asking $1000. This is a manual kiln. I
am looking to step up to an automated (computerized) one.
