The Bracker Raku Kiln is a lightweight and portable design for firing ceramic pieces in your own backyard. The kiln made today was designed by Bill Bracker in the early 1970’s utilizing the new technology of ceramic fiber. The kiln is made by lining a cage of wire fence material and a metal garbage can lid with one-half inch thick fiber blanket. The fiber is then rigidized with a mixture of sodium silicate and water. The use of the fiber allows the ceramicist to have the insulating qualities of 21/2 inches of soft insulating firebrick, yet it is light enough that anyone is able to pick it up. You will need to provide your own burner.
