A great pottery kiln for beginners and teachers alike. Our lowest cost ceramic kiln and a great little workhorse. The Skutt Firebox 8x6LT comes with plenty of features to include amazingly fast firing, a smooth hinged lid and Kilnmaster LT 3 button controller with programming compatability for beginners through to advanced artists. We regularly use one in our studio for test firing.
Firebox 8x6 LT Pottery Kiln
The Firebox 8 is a side firing kiln, with the elements in all four walls for an even firing. The lid itself is a lightweight brick construction coated with refractory cement. It has a cool-touch handle. The chamber is also made from lightweight brick, which is used because it is able to expand and contract as the kiln heats and cools. It also helps reduce the overall weight of the kiln. The whole kiln is set on sturdy metal feet. The Firebox 8x6 LT operates on standard household voltage, and comes with a UK plug fitted.
The Firebox 8x6 LT kiln now comes with the reliable and easy to use Kilnmaster LT 3 button controller which provides features for both the beginner and the advanced artist. Starting with simple factory set programmes can save a lot of time. However, as you become familiar with the kiln this controller allows you to modify the settings during firing or design your own firings with five additional eight segment programmes, providing you with total programming freedom and confidence.
The inner dimensions are 20cm x 20cm x 16.5cm.

Hi there, This kiln is very well insulated, so doesn't get very hot at all on the outside during firing. As long as there is adequate ventilation and the kiln is positioned away from walls you shouldn't have a problem.
This kiln has small feet attached, which provide adequate insulation for whatever surface the kiln is placed on so an extra stand does not need to be bought.
Hi, There are so many factors that affect the length of a firing that it is hard to say. Below is an example but it is very much a guide. If you were to do a bisque firing with a 4 hour preheat, Cone 04, Slow speed, no hold at top temp and an aver...
Hi, the height of the chamber on this kiln is 16.5cm, so you can easily stack two shelves. It may be possible to add another shelf, but depending on the height of your props this top shelf may end up above the top elements so I'd recommend a test ...
