Abstract

My project is to build a small test kiln that will be fueled by waste vegetable oil. While it is not a requirement in our program, kiln construction and firing is essential in ceramics education and will help prepare me for my goal of graduate studies in the field. This kiln will be a valuable learning tool that will enable my fellow students and I to expand our creative opportunities by exploring new firing methods while utilizing affordable and sustainable fuels. I believe this project will benefit the entire University by demonstrating our commitment to sustainability and strengthening relationships within the community by collaborating with local businesses for fuel donations.
