Typical Applications

Craft Ceramics

Low-Fire Ceramics is typically fired below about 2000°F (1100°C).
Ceramic sculpture presents unique loading and firing challenges.
The market for hand-made art tiles is increasing.
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.
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.
Majolica is a decorated tin-glazed earthenware, low fired and decorated over an opaque tin oxide glaze.


Diane chooses to fire in an L&L JD230 for number of reasons. The fully opening lid allows her to load her larger sculptures in without the impediment of a lid prop and the durable ceramic holders have kept the kiln in like-new condition.  She switched to L&L because of the deterioration of the element channels in her last kiln.  She is commonly loading larger tiles and needs the extra durability on the faces of the firebrick.  

Conestoga has always used L&L kilns – going back over 30 years. Why? They hold up to the heavy use of this ambitious program.
