The UltraLite Kiln is a low-cost small-scale jewellery kiln that can use a regular mains socket. It's an 845°C, compact, round, ceramic-fibre kiln, with a firing disc in the bottom and a lift-off lid.

The UltraLite Kiln is the smallest kiln in the UK. It's ideal for your home, craft workshop, jewellery studio, or course venue. It weighs just 1kg, so is easy to take to craft fairs, demonstrations, and exhibitions.

The UltraLite Kiln is suitable for small-scale work: drying and firing Art Clay and PMC silver clays, enamelling, glass fusing, gold leaf keum-boo work, and mixed-media jewellery.

The Ultra Lite Kiln is sometimes called an Art Clay kiln, a craft kiln, an enamelling kiln, a glass-fusing kiln, a hobby kiln, a jewellery kiln, a keum-boo kiln, a PMC kiln, a precious metal clay kiln, a SilverClay kiln, a small kiln, or a trinkets kiln.

Art Clay, sometimes called silver clay, gold clay, metal clay, or precious-metal clay, is made by Aida Chemical Industries in Japan: it's a composite clay-like material, made of fine silver or gold powder and a harmless organic binder.

As it's fired, the binder vapourises and the metal powder sinters, leaving solid 999 silver or 22 carat gold: real metal, not something that just looks like metal.

To learn more about Art Clay, and related products, use the start link below the menu bar near the top of the page, then choose Art Clay.
