If there is something that can change the whole concept of your ceramics, it might be the kiln that you use. This is something that we know at Guldagergaard - our Kiln Yard is unique in that we have the largest variety of kilns available at one facility in Europe, and we continously develop it with new kilns. We also have a place for pit-firing.

Beneath you will find a list of all Guldagergaard's kilns.

Welcome to the kiln yard


Guldagergaard has a wonderful and often bustling kiln yard full of activities. We offer both glazing and firing programs, and you also have the opportunity to join our group firings or woodfiring symposia, which will always be announced on the website. Educational institutions, artists and scholars often come to Guldagergaard to take advantage of kilns not available in their studios, and our kiln yard is always in motion – we strive to always develop the kilns and build new ones to keep the kiln yard updated.


In our kiln yard you may find a cylinder gas kiln adjustable in height, a setup for raku firing and several wood kilns in various sizes and types, out of which the most commonly fired are our train and soda kiln. See the full list below.


We currently offer a Kiln Building Workshop with Kiln Master Andres Allik – read more and sign up.
