Behind The Scenes at Acacia Art Tile
The glaze kiln for the tile work is of the electric variety. It doesn’t take quite as long as the gas kiln to bring the interior temperature to 2232° and a day and a half for the ware inside to cool enough to be handled. The kiln doesn’t really like to be loaded entirely with tile so there is a line of red clay pots that always accompanies a load of tile.
