Terra Cotta Standard Construction | by National Terra Cotta Society



Terra Cotta is usually fired in periodic muffle kilns. In recent years, the tunnel kiln has been developed for the firing of Terra Cotta. In the latter type of kiln the Terra Cotta is set or loaded on cars, which travel through a long heated tunnel. From the kiln, the Terra Cotta is removed to the lilting department, where it is laid out and marked to correspond with the piece numbers shown on the shop drawings. It is also marked to indicate the position it is to occupy in the building.
