Pottery/Blue Diamond Kiln Manual Model 180


I recently purchased a Blue Diamond Kiln - model 180d.  It has no owner's manual and I have no experience with using a kiln.  I found an older post where you posted a link to a blue diamond manual but that link is no longer working.  I'm guessing that is due to the company going out of business last year.  Where else can I find an owner's manual?  Thank you!

Dear Natalie,

Thank you for your recent question. I have been collecting kiln manuals and publishing them to my website. Please go to the following link and search for your manual under Blue Diamond Kiln Manual - Model 180.

I hope this is what you are searching for. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact me again any time. I am always at your service.

Will answer any questions on hand building, wheel, glaze, firing. Speciality questions to include those in glaze calculation and development, firing techniques. Please do not send questions on identifying pottery. Although I would love to add this to my question topics, I have a retreat to run as well as the studio and volunteering on AllExperts, and therefore do not have the available time to research indentification and marks. Thank you for understanding.


Experience includes 30 years in pottery design and education. Have taught online and studio classes worldwide for the last 20 years. Own a pottery retreat specializing in firing techniques. Have 12 years solid experience in glaze calculation and formulation as well as problem solving in glaze chemistry. I am the first potter in the United States to have developed a complete package of pottery equipment blueprints for a studio. The blueprints include wheels, kilns, studio furniture, wedgeboards, raku kilns, slab rollers, ball mills and studio tools.
