Taking finished ceramic artwork from a kiln
What is a kiln used for? An electric kiln is a heating chamber used to process materials at high temperatures. A kiln uses a process invented thousands of years ago to harden ceramic bodies. Clay becomes hard enough to form tiles and vessels when heated properly. Glazes fired on the clay turn into permanent decoration. Some of the world's finest artwork is made of clay. Ancient China's porcelain is priceless. As history has proved, ordinary clay becomes strong enough through the magic of heat to last many centuries.

Used this old kiln for many years
My primary use of a kiln is to harden clay into hard ceramic bodies. I have been using exclusively Paragon kilns for years with excellent results.
