Community Art Center Resource Page

Community Art Centers are places where ceramic artists of all ages are able to express, learn and socialize with other like-minded people. Reliable studio ceramic kilns are a critical part of the program.

Durability

  • Kilns are fired more that normal in an art center
  • Constant loading and unloading can takes its toll on the soft firebrick grooves in most kilns - but not with L&L's hard element holders - they protect the delicate firebrick from loading damage
  • This mean cost savings for your art center
  • Kilns that stay operational when you need them most

Testimonials

These kilns keep looking new for decades because of the element holders. Now with the zone control, they fire absolutely evenly from top to bottom. All of this excellent engineering, along with their reasonable prices, make L&L the best electric kiln on the market.

"I have had several kilns (three other popular brands) and L&L. The L&L is my favorite and I find that the construction of the kiln with the ceramic element holders, better withstands the test of time and use."
