Judy,

Did you buy your kiln in France? I’m looking into buying one but
have difficulties locating the right dealer. (in Holland, Belgium or
France).

Hi Linda

Did you buy your kiln in France? I'm looking into buying one but
have difficulties locating the right dealer. (in Holland, Belgium
or France). 

yes, I did buy my kiln in France.

I bought it from a place called Ceradel:

http://www.ceradel.com/extracontent/DiscoverCeradel.asp

I went to their outlet in Limoges but they have other outlets, and I
see one in Belgium.

The lovely thing about buying it in Limoges (its about three hours
away from here) was that I also visited the Soyer Cristallerie de St
Paul, just outside Limoge: http://www.emaux-soyer.com.

Good luck. Let me know if I can help further.

best wishes
Judy

Apart from Ceradel, you have some good choice at "Les Cousins"
http://www.lescousins.fr for enamelling supplies.

Judy mentioned that Emaux Soyer is worth visiting, and I may add that
they sell kilns as well “par correspondance”.

For enamelling supplies in Holland you should try Ellen Goldman
http://www.goldman-arts.nl who is the distributor for Thompson
Enamels (leadfree enamels). I don’t know whether she sells kilns but
she is a very experienced enamel artist and very generous with her
time and

You could also try http://www.zamaartclays.com who are based in
Jersey, Chanel Islands - they stock a range of Japanese enamels (that
are very finely ground so be careful when washing) and also stock a
very small basic kiln. Its chamber size is approx 30mm high x 100mm
wide x 130mm deep but it does have a built in controller and is small
and lightweight. I have one I take if I am doing a demonstration or
class at a venue outside my own studio.

In the UK there a plenty of choices - and with the current exchange
rate it may be worth investigating Vitrum Signum
http://www.vitrumsignum.com who have a fantastic range of all kinds
of enamelling supplies, including kilns.

Also http://www.corbykilns.co.uk

I use all of these regularly and have always had good and helpful
service from them.

Best of luck with your search
