Art & Activity Tables KilnMaster 22" Kiln Series Debcor, Inc. Skutt Kilns & Wheels Debcor's rock steady, wide-body Art & Activity Tables are the right choice for any artist's studio. They are available in adjustable heights of 26½–30½" or at a fixed height of 29½". Each table provides an extralarge work area—ideal for large-scale projects. Table tops are available in custom color laminates or solid laminated maple wood. For more information, please contact Debcor: 513 W. Taft Drive, South Holland, IL 60473, (708) 333-2191, Fax (708) 333-2245. We now offer a line of kilns that provide the perfect mix of height and volume for those artists and teachers who have difficulty opening and loading a 27" deep kiln. Teachers and potters have been requesting a new line of kilns that hold lots of pots and are still easy for shorter potters to load. Our 22" Series of kilns do just that. Previously, there were no models in between 18" and 27" of chamber depth. The 22" deep models give vertically challenged potters the perfect combination of volume, safety, and comfort. The new kilns are available in three basic models: KM822/KM1022/KM1222. For more information visit www.skutt.com. schoolartsonline.com 45
