No exact plans but photos from which you could develop your own small wood
fired kiln.

Go to Stephen Mills web site at -
Once there scroll down to the "Playing with Fire" section and further
scroll to the "60 minute" kiln. Be sure you eventually scroll further on
down for information on the adjustments made in the original "60 minute" kiln.

I personally find it sad that the trend should be towards ever larger
kilns, especially at colleges where they should be teaching their
students how to build affordable kilns that one person can, at a pinch,
fire on their own. This is the basic philosophy behind the Playing With
Fire courses we run each spring over here. The best example is the one I
call the 60 minute kiln, because that's how long it took a group of 5 of
us to build the first one. Double cross draught, made out of buff house
bricks (dry laid) and thick kiln shelves, held together with angle iron
and fencing wire, fires to cones 10/12 in a full day. Great fun, lovely
