The Kiln Yard
We are a community based kiln yard in North Portland at
Our Mission: To provide artist and the public to access for firing ceramic works in gas reduction and other specialized atmosphere kilns!
What are we about? This is project is still in its infancy.
We have a Olympic D9 kiln. We fire propane gas for our reduction firing. The Kiln Yard does include a glazing and staging area for work.
When firing will be available to the public for general firing, we will be firing to cone 6.
As a member you'll have access to reserving a full kiln for your work and getting on the calendar. Training or shadowed firing sessions will be required before firing the kiln solo.
We have big HOPES for the success and possibilities this Kiln Yard. For what it will provide to artists and the greater Portland clay community.
We are starting with one kiln with hopefully more to follow, including a Soda kiln and regular Raku firings.
We are still building out and test firing our new kiln and will be hosting a Kickstarter to help get us off and running.
