The Pyramid Kiln excels because of its simplicity and efficiency. It offers enormous prospects for experimenting. It can be fired with wood or propane gas, in reduction or oxidising, for RAKU, biscuit or full glaze firing, either fully loaded or for a quick firing with just one pot.
Because of its pyramid shape, the heat in the kiln is deflected downwards before leaving via the flue. Thisproduces in a very fast temperature increase while using little energy. This design and good insulation allows for example, about 5 - 7 Raku firings to a temperature of 1050°C can be obtained from one 11 kg propane gas holder.
Moreover, because this kiln's door is on the side instead of at the top there's less risk of burnt eyelashes and eyebrows and thus SAFER. Operating the wood fired kiln provides full involvement with the firing process.
Sittingquietly beside your kiln and occasionally chopping some wood while looking at the flames and the glow of the fire. Opening the door and looking into the kiln to see if the glaze is already fusing and experiencing how beautiful the transparent orange colours are and how hot it is at about 1000°C. A larger involvement with the firing process can hardly be imagined.
Firing the wood kiln is easy. It seems that the kiln is firing itself. It appears that everybody develops theirown ideas about the fire build-up and the ways of reducing, so that firing the kiln becomes a very personal experience.
