Kiln Hire Made Easy
Individual kiln listing pages display information provided by the kiln owner and include firing rules, the kiln’s location, and a few pictures (some kiln owners may even state their prices). Potters can quickly send messages to kiln owners for more information through an easy-to-use contact form. After Kiln Share has connected the potter and kiln owner, it is their duty together to work out a firing arrangement that is suitable for both parties. Kiln Share does not charge commission, process payment fees, or have any responsibility or liability over the kiln-rental agreement.
Advice For Listing Your Kiln
As positive word continues to spread about Kiln Share and the concept of renting out kiln space becomes more mainstream, the number of kiln listings will increase to meet this global demand, continuing to help make kiln hire more accessible for all.
Advice About Creating a Platform in the Ceramics Community
Initially with Kiln Share, it was difficult to promote the concept of renting kiln space to kiln owners. But over time, as a few open-minded kiln owners joined and the directory started to generate a buzz and attract potters, more and more kiln owners jumped on board (and continue to do so nearly every day). As I manage and maintain Kiln Share solely on my own, the platform’s running costs are very low. My next task is to introduce branded display advertising so I can start generating some revenue that I can invest back into the directory.
