This small kiln has served me for 30 years as a pottery kiln and glass bead annealer. It works still. I am selling it because I am downscaling my involvement in these two activities. Other than the manual calling it a Hobby Kiln,  I can’t establish what make it is, although the mechanical controller is a Euclid.

The internal  dimensions are 285mm across and 300mm deep. It has 4, six sided shelves, and small stack stilts, and 4 bungs. One of those got a bit damaged so I coated that section with aluminium foil.

It runs off domestic single phase 220V mains supply.

Years ago we had a base with castors made so it is easy to move the kiln around. I have a few firing cones and some kiln wash.

I would like R2500 for the above.
I live in Pretoria.

Drury Brandt Benefit Exhibition

Drury is a Fellow of Ceramics Southern Africa and has been a selector and judge at CSA exhibitions. He has presented numerous workshops whereby he shared his knowledge and passion for hand building. Drury has also won many awards for his ceramics. He has work in various public and private collections in South Africa and abroad as well as in the permanent Corobrik Collection at the Pretoria Art Museum.

Exploring creativity and the magic of clay inspire him. The vessel's capacity in human service stimulates his interest albeit from a non functional art based perspective.  He leans towards a casual and free approach in decoration being much influenced by the abstract expressionist movement. The work of Alison Britton, Maltby, Sandy Brown, Hans Coper and Voulkos excite and stimulate him.

Please join us for a benefit exhibition to alleviate some of the extremely high medical bills that Drury has incurred recently. Despite both his wife Diana and his own medical challenges, Drury has maintained a positive outlook on life and has managed to get into his studio at every opportunity to make work. We can only admire his tenacity.
