    Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Product Overview

    The Bracker Raku Kiln is a lightweight and portable design for firing ceramic pieces in your own backyard. The kiln we make today was designed by Bill Bracker in the early 1970''s burner port, and lighting the burner.

    PLEASE NOTE: This kit DOES NOT INCLUDE: a propane tank, kiln posts, garbage cans, or metal tubs.

    First, firebricks provide an excellent way to post the first shelf. Cut two of the firebricks in half and use three of the cut half firebricks (2-1/2” x 4-1/2” x 4-1/2”) in a triangular formation. Second, the kiln’s atmosphere is easily controlled during the firing to modify the amount of oxygen your kiln load receives. The kiln is equipped with venting (or peep) holes directly above the burner port. These can be left open or plugged to oxidize or reduce the firing atmosphere. A bag of fiber scraps have been included with your kiln and can act as excellent peep hole plugs for this kiln. Third, the included burner is not a forced-air burner, so a good supply of oxygen to the burner head is imperative. The tip of the burner should be approximately 1/2” to 1” outside of the kiln, but you can also control the atmosphere and speed of firing by moving the burner slightly towards or away from the kiln. Initial firings in a cold kiln should take about an one hour and successive firings should take approximately 45 minutes, depending on the glazes you might use and how many pieces you are firing (a tightly-packed kiln load could increase the firing time).

    The kiln is shipped with a bag of shredded paper inside. Not only does it provide crush resistance during transit without adding excessive shipping weight, but it can also be used as reduction material for your first firing. Also great reduction material: leaves, sawdust, excelsior, hamster/gerbil bedding, and pine needles. Your kiln was also packed with styrofoam packing peanuts. Do NOT use these for reduction material.
