Firebox 8x6 LT Pottery Kiln

This is a pre-order item. Once purchased Hot Clay will be in touch with the estimated delivery time.

Construction:

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.

Programmer:

Kilnmaster LT Controller

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.  

Chamber Size: 

The inner dimensions are 20 x 20 x 16.5cm. 

The Firebox 8x6 LT is supplied with:
  • The Excellent LT Controller
  • Stand
  • 18cm Kiln Shelf
  • 3 Shelf Props
  • Operating Manual
  • Wired with a standard UK domestic plug. If you are using the outside the UK, you will need to fit the correct plug for your region.

Customer Questions
My husband is looking to get into creating his own pots as a hobby in his retirement, would we need to house this kiln in any particular building? Would he need a brick built structure rather than a wooden studio?

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.

Do I need to buy a stand for the kiln or does it operate safely without?

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.

How long would it take to bisque fire three mugs?Does it fire to stoneware?How long would a glaze firing take?Many thanks

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...

I am considering this kiln to fire porcelain pendants. So how many shelves could this kiln reasonably stack? Thanks

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 ...
