The art of kiln building has survived for centuries without many changes to its basic principles. This book offers radically new ideas and different approaches to the age-old skill. The Alternative Kiln takes a fresh look at the process of kiln building, suggesting unconventional materials and new styles of kilns, many of which are art forms in their own right. These nontraditional kilns reflect the creative and inventive spirit of pottery. Designed for the experienced kiln-builder, the book provides a few basic instructions as well.
Heavily illustrated, this volume is an instructional as well as inspirational book, which should appeal to all levels of kiln builders.
