Craft Ceramics

The market for hand-made art tiles is increasing.
The Bisque process hardens the ware making it easier to handle without breaking during the glazing process.
China paints are widely used because of their low firing temperature and vast color spectrum. It is typically used as a way to paint pictures on glazed ceramics.
L&L makes a very special kiln series just for crystalline glaze ceramics
High fire ceramic range
Low-Fire Ceramics is typically fired below about 2000°F (1100°C).
A luster is a metallic based decoration characterized by their iridescent sheen and varying color shades of soft metallic-like hues.
Majolica is a decorated tin-glazed earthenware, low fired and decorated over an opaque tin oxide glaze.
Cone 5-6 is becoming more and more popular in the ceramic world.
Many artists choose to fire only once per cycle, bisqueing and glazing in the same firing.
Raku is popular but is typically done in gas-fired kilns
Ceramic sculpture presents unique loading and firing challenges.

Craft Glass

Glass fusing fuses or joins to pieces of glass together.
Glass slumping can be done in any of our kiln series.

Craft Metal

Industrial Ceramics

Binders are materials that hold a ceramic material together until the sintering process can take place. In some cases these need to be burned out in a separate process.
Process applications using calcination between 500°C and 1100ºC
Ceramic armor protects lives.
Specialized ceramic coatings for military and industrial use
Piezoelectric parts have become standard in a broad variety of applications.
In sintering, the green ceramic is heated to a high temperature, below the melting point of the ceramic.

Industrial Glass

Annealing eyeglass lenses takes precision and custom configuration.

Industrial Heat Treating

This is a surface hardening process

Heating Materials

Heat metal to proper temperature for forging
