This is a special configuration of two 1227 kilns made especially to work together harmoniously stacked for firing your tall clay sculptures! They work beautifully at lowfire or highfire temperatures, and they are real powerhouses.
They ALSO work perfectly as two separate kilns!
- Two years old.
- Less than 60 firings!
- Kilns are in great shape.
- Elements are in great shape too!
- The bottom row of brick in the bottom kiln is a little thinner, compressed by the weight of stacking the kilns.
