How it works

Find a kiln to rent or list your own anywhere in the world (FAQs)

Looking to hire a kiln?

Find local kiln owners who rent out their kiln.

Search the map - Search our interactive directory map to find kiln listings in your country and area. Use the controls to zoom in and out to find a kiln that you can hire.

View kiln listings - Click a flame icon to show a local kiln listing. Follow the link to find more information about the kiln, the owner and firing rules etc. You can also view all our kiln listings in a list.

Get in touch - Use the contact form (found on each kiln listing page) to send a message directly to the kiln owner. Try to include information about what you want to fire, type of firing, clay and glaze type and your timescale. The owner will reply as soon as possible :)

Note: It is 100% FREE to search for a kiln to hire on Kiln Share. Your data is shared only with the kiln owner and this website. If you can't find a kiln near you, follow us on Instagram or Facebook for new listing updates! If one day you get your own kiln, we'd love for you to sign up to our directory!
