The potter’s supplier “Töpferbedarf Brock” organised a seminar on ceramic kilns on July 1, 2016 in Augsburg, Germany. Ulrike Brock invited customers and other interested persons. 22 participants registered and the training room was fully booked within no time.
The seminar was presented by Benjamin Rohde, Managing Director of Helmut ROHDE GmbH. After a short presentation of the company, he focussed on general kiln topics giving a detailed explanation of differences between gas-fired and electrically operated kilns as well as their advantages and disadvantages. Fundamental questions were answered such as: how to set the right temperature, how to choose the right kiln size, which kiln suits my requirements, etc.
The training and question and answer session ended after a little more than two hours.
