About Us

Making kiln hire more accessible

Starting from a simple belief that not every potter needs to own a kiln, Kiln Share is on a mission to make kiln hire more accessible for potters all over the world!

Our goal is to …

  • Help connect potters looking to rent kiln space to fire their work, with someone locally who owns a kiln
  • Helping kiln owners earn extra income from renting out space in their kiln to local potters

Kiln Share is 100% FREE for both potters searching for kiln space to hire and for kiln owners who want to be listed in the directory. Kilns can be listed any where in the world!

Our Platform

Kiln Share is a kiln directory website that connects potters looking to fire their work with local kiln owners.

We do not charge commission or process kiln rental payments through this website. This means responsibility and liability is held solely between the potter and the kiln owner – this includes agreeing a price, sorting a payment method, setting firing rules and paying for damages (should they occur).

As a kiln owner, you are under no obligation to fire a potter’s work just because they contacted you. As it’s your equipment, you set the firing rules and prices. Read this blog post for help with pricing.

If you are a potter looking to rent kiln space, you can easily contact kiln owners through their listing page. Please respect the kiln owner’s rules and provide evidence of clay and glaze type used to avoid kiln accidents.
