Ceramic fibre brick for torch firing
Place your metal clay pieces on this thick heatproof firing block when firing with a torch. The soft ceramic fibre brick will protect your work surface from the heat. Being soft ceramic fibre you can impress, carve, or drill, holes or indents for supporting your pieces, holding wires, and more.
TOP TIP: To make your own perfectly shaped silver balls to use for decoration and granulation work; use a ball burnisher to gently indent the brick (make lots of indentations right next to each other), snip fine silver wire into 0.5-1mm length, place one snippet in each indent, and heat with a torch until they melt!
This is also a great surface to keep next to your kiln use to set your hot kiln shelf or tongs on.
Measures approximately 110 x 150 x 50mm.
Got this and the beginners kit to fire my first pieces on. Works a treat. It is like magic how well it insulates the surrounding area. May buy more when i need to create a more enclosed area for melting silver.
Very glad :)
Good quality product and very speedy delivery.
For the price of it you can’t go wrong, does what it is suppose to and good quality
I have used these bricks many times and find them useful when using a gas torch for firing and also to place items on when kiln firing.
Recent purchase to replace an old, worn-out one. These are very good when using a hand-torch to sinter an item.
this is excellent for firing either in the kiln or with a torch. I used this for a student who will be torch firing and he found it excellent as I do.
Good when using third arm, really helps to adjust height differences
