FAQ/Answer

Does drying leather-hard greenware in the kiln on a long pre-heat adversely affect the kiln’s bricks and elements?

This is an expensive way to dry greenware. However, it is okay to dry greenware in the kiln as long as the temperature gets no higher than 200 F (93 C) and the kiln is well vented. Do not raise the temperature until the clay has dried out.

The kiln must be vented during the drying period, or the firebricks will absorb moisture. An indication of moisture in the firebricks is water dripping from the case.
