A magma kiln behaves the same as a kiln, differing only by the fact that it uses the heat from magma instead of requiring fuel. Like all magma furnaces, it must be built out of magma-safe materials, and one of the edge tiles must be directly above a tile of magma at least 4 deep. It is recommended to place the kiln such that the impassable tile at the top is directly over the magma channel so that dwarves cannot accidentally fall into the magma.
As with other magma workshops, magma kilns will not be available for construction until you have discovered magma in your region.
