Olympic Electric Raku Kilns and Top Hat Kilns


Olympic Kilns TopHat Series

Easy Access for All Types of Heat-Treating, Glaze, Bisque, Raku and Glass Firings!
Olympic TopHat models can be used for heat-treating, ceramics, raku and glass firings. The unique design of the kiln, with the lifted firing chamber, retains the heat within the firing chamber even when opened. Once the firing chamber is lifted by a hand crank, accessibility is available from all sides making it easy for loading and unloading of ware. These Top-Hat kilns have lid elements for glass fusing and high fire to cone 10, 2350°F for pottery and ceramics. Models come in widths ranging from 18” to 28” and depths of 9” or 13.5”.
Included in the category of TopHats are the electric raku kiln models. The 120 volt Electric Raku 1214-120E fires to cone 4, 2100°F and the 1823E Raku fires to cone 8, 2300°F on 240 or 208 volts. These models have the option for a lid element.

Now you can create beautiful raku pieces in an electric kiln!

You can do it all in an Olympic Electric Raku kiln – raku, bisque or glaze!
The electric raku created for the artist who doesn't have access to gas but wants to do raku.

Raku is an ancient Japanese technique that has been rediscovered by modern potters who appreciate its unique beauty and metallic luster and colors. The raku process involves reducing (starving the oxygen) the glazed raku pottery in combustible materials such as leaves, sawdust, newspaper, etc. When the pieces are ready to take out of the kiln, they are placed in galvanized trash containers with combustible materials and covered. Once the pieces are cooled down, they are removed from the containers, washed and reveal the rich warm effects of raku.
