Pottery Kilns

I have built numerous pottery kilns around the world. One of my favorites will have to be the simpliest charcoal brazers, which are found throughout the world. Also know as a Shichirin in Japanese, and is used for cooking. The shichirin is made of material that is quite suitable for high temperatures (1200 degrees C). Although they may break easily due to stress of high temperature they can be easily repaired using a mixture of fireclay and coarse river sand as a chamotte.
The small size is compact enough to allow them to be discrete to be used anywhere, which may not allow for open flames. Please see the following link www.projecth2o.org/pottery for pictures of my studio in Japan.
