Clay + Fire + Soda Ash = Soda Kiln  


As a BFA Ceramic Student,

I dedicated my focus to

learning how the soda kiln

effects a clay surface.


99% of my ceramics made

at UNC-Charlotte have

gone through the soda kiln.


This page features photos

and tips through the

process of loading, firing,

and unloading a soda kiln.


Warning: If you have never

run a gas kiln before please

consult your instructor

about the specific kiln 

avaible to you and how 

to use it properly!


Thank you!
