Abstract

In this thesis, I will discuss most of the aspects of salt firing. I will give a quick overview of the history of salt glazing and talk about some of the clay and glazes that I have adapted and work well for me in the salt kiln. I have also, developed an injection system to better introduce sodium compounds into the kiln. My goal was to find a method of introducing these materials into the kiln more efficiently and effectively. My system proves to be more effective in getting the best result, while using less of the material. By using less material, I will cut down on cost, materials and save the kiln from the damaging effects of the salt, which will extend the life of the kiln and will delay having to fix or rebuild it.*.;*This dissertation is a compound document (contains both a paper copy and a CD as part of the dissertation). The CD requires the following system requirements: Windows MediaPlayer or RealPlayer.
