Firing Silver clay in a kiln offers the most versatility and allows multiple pieces to be fired. An ideal kiln for silver clay jewellery and other small items, the Prometheus Kiln can be used for firing the metal Art Clays and small ceramics; glass fusing, enamelling, bead making and moulding; annealing and hardening of metals. The cork clay can be used as a core to create hollow pieces of jewellery made with Art Clay Silver. The clay burns away during firing in the kiln to leave a void in the fired silver.
