Our fiber firing vessels (The Fiber Pot and The Fiber Box) are constructed with
high quality, high density rigidized ceramic fiber board assembled
with high temperature adhesives. They are extremely lightweight
and will not form fire scale and will not dirty your kiln. Our vessels are
thermal shock proof and can be removed safely from the kiln while still hot.
Please note that The Fiber Pot and The Fiber Box are made from insulating
ceramic fiber material and are extremely efficient at holding heat. You may find
that firing programs may need to be adjusted to your individual kiln.
It is not necessary to fire the The Fiber Pot or The Fiber Box with the lid on.
Faster heating and cooling will be accomplished by firing with the lid off. If
you chose to fire with the lid on, two holes have been added to aid in heat
penetration and ventilation (The Fiber Pot only).
Once the kiln has cooled for a short time, remove The Fiber Pot or The Fiber Box
from the kiln, place on a heatproof surface, and remove the lid (if used). While
the carbon is cooling, you may stir a few times to aid in cooling the carbon
more quickly. Note: Carbon allowed to cool naturally in a closed fiber vessel
may burn completely away.
The Fiber Pot and The Fiber Box have been hardened with a rigidizer so that you
may enjoy unending firings. Please use care in handling the The Fiber Pot and
The Fiber Box to avoid early wear.
