An electric kiln is a heating chamber used to transform materials at high temperatures.
A kiln hardens ceramic bodies using a process invented thousands of years ago. Clay, when heated properly, becomes hard enough to form tiles and vessels. Glazes fired over the clay become permanent decoration. Some of the most beautiful artwork in the world is made of clay. Porcelain from ancient China is priceless. Through the magic of heat, ordinary clay becomes strong enough to last many centuries, as history has proven.
A kiln can fuse pieces of stained glass to form unique colors and patterns. Slump sheet glass into a mold to form bowls and vases. Bend glass strips over molds to form glass bracelets. Make glass earrings and pendants. As with ceramics, glass fusing is ancient. The Corning Glass Museum in Corning, New York owns fused glass bowls and pendants dating back to ancient Rome and Egypt.
Kilns harden ceramic bodies, heat treat steel, melt glass into crucibles, fuse layers of stained glass, melt enameling powder onto copper jewelry, fire porcelain dolls, fuse clay silver—the applications are fascinating and endless.
