a) Furniture refers to movable articles such as tables, chairs, desks, cabinets or cupboards, all of which are used for functional purposes but can be austere or decorative in style.
b) Furniture applies to all the implements used to pack a kiln to its full capacity, such as shelves, cranks, stilts, etc. In this dictionary each piece of furniture is listed in two places, by its name alphabetically and under a separate heading called Kiln Furniture, where all the pieces are named and illustrated in alphabetical order. This is to help you to find things, to know what the piece is called and what it looks like. Read more about: Kiln – Furniture
