Getting a kiln is often the hardest part of setting up a pottery studio. Check out these little electric kilns for sale if you don't have access to a big 220 volt plugin.
Many of these run on the smaller 120 volt standard household plug, so you may be able to use them in a garage or basement without doing any re-wiring. (Be sure to follow the owners manual for safe operation).
This little guy is a 15" by 6" electric kiln designed for glass and ceramics. Obviously it has a small capacity, but that can be worth the trade-off for being able to avoid re-wiring your house, especially if you are an occasional hobby potter. If you are throwing a lot of pottery and want to fire 10 or more pieces a week or want to throw larger pots, this kiln wouldn't be the right choice.
