A pottery oven (also known as a kiln) is used in crafting clay items that have been moulded from soft clay on a potter's wheel or with a mould. With the relevant Crafting level the player finishes the unfired versions of clay items, gaining Crafting experience and making the items usable.
The player places the unfired clay item in the oven, waits for a few seconds, then removes the finished, fired clay object. However, there is a small chance that the unfired items may crack in the pottery oven, destroying them. The probability of this decreases with every increase in Crafting level.
The following table shows pottery oven locations, which are not shown on the world map.
It would be useful to note that pottery cannot be fired in a furnace, or that ore (for example iron ore) cannot be smelted in a pottery oven.
A portable crafter will function as a potter's wheel and a potter's oven, making them very convenient as they can be deployed anywhere.
|Gunnarsgrunn||Located a short distance from Varrock, with a well water souce in the village (bucket no longer needed for making soft clay) and clay mines just south of the pottery wheel.|
|Crafting Guild||Probably the best location, as the oven is only a room away from clay mines and water sources.|
|Draynor Village||The Potters Cottage. North of the Market in Draynor.|
|Varrock||Just East of Aubury's Rune Shop.|
|Burthorpe||Just south of the bank chest. Close to water source and clay mine.|
|East Ardougne||This oven is located near a water source and bank (north-west of), though quite far from clay rocks.|
|Rellekka||Usable after completing the quest The Fremennik Trials. A bank is a long walk away (unless you bank in Jatizso or Neitiznot via boat), but the oven is located near clay mines and a water source. Can also use Peer the Seer as depositor.|
|Darkmeyer||North of the bank.|
|Prifddinas||Ithell district, West of a bank chest and far West of the city centre.|
|Menaphos||Located in a building on the east side of the Workers District.|
