CLASSIC-LINE CBR, Raku top and front-loaders up to 1,150 °C
Raku – a firing technique from the Far East, has experienced a real boom over the last few years. Each ceramic item that is made is unique, unmistakeable and not reproducible. The ware is bisque fired and usually glazed before being heated to 750 to 1,050 °C. It is then removed from the kiln with the Raku tongs, still glowing. It is then reduced by putting it into a container with sawdust, leaves or grass inside it. Immersion in water ultimately alters the glaze again. In this way, anyone can develop their own technique for giving their ceramics a personal, individual touch. This is what makes Raku a different experience every time.
Our Raku kilns are characterised by being easy to transport, having very short heat-up times, and being easy to use. The KITTEC CBR Raku top-loaders and the CBR Raku front-loader kilns have all of these advantages. They are a low-cost and robust alternative to self-built “Raku drums” – ceramic fibre-free and long-lasting. And with an excellent price/performance ratio. The specified firing chamber height is the height of the useable space above the base plate on the lightweight refractory brick blocks.
