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.
