The Kiln Book is a well-established classic in the field of kiln building. This 4th edition is a fully revised and updated version, bursting with colour images of kilns in all their various stages of construction. The most comprehensive book on kiln building available, all the essential information is provided on the all-important basics such as types of bricks, ceramic fiber, angle iron and other building materials, as well as chimneys, kiln design and draft and fuel choice. It covers all kiln types including gas, wood, oil, electric and various combinations of these, as well as being packed with plans, drawings and advice. It also gives you all the details needed and the finer points which are crucial for those building more ambitious kilns. There are many other kiln books, but one as comprehensive, is hard to find.

This latest edition brings many new exciting kilns into the public arena, offering many more approaches and inventions as contemporary kiln builders push boundaries and develop new ideas.

Fred Olsen has been a ceramic artist for over 40 years and is very well known as a kiln builder. He often demonstrates kiln building at conferences and workshops around the world and is generally regarded as the authority on kilns. He sells his own designed kiln kits to potters around the world. First published in 1973, The Kiln Book has been continually revised and expanded ever since.
