    It should be made from basalt ! It would give it a usage and let us have a really good texture for forges, ect

    This would be great especially considering how much I use stone brick and glass in my builds! Any minecraft devs reading this, we would love this.

    Could also be the only furnace to smelt netherite scrap

    I second the idea that it be the only furnace type block that can smelt ancient debris into scrap. We MUST have this block!

    yeah it would be great for making glass, bricks, terracotta, etc. and I agree with GONG BO-LIN It should also carbonize wood giving some nice dark textures of wood

    I would furthermore encourage that all ceramic materials be usable in such a kiln:

    Cobble ➡ Stone
    Stone ➡ Smooth Stone (includes sandstones and quartz, which are also smoothable by furnace)
    Stone Brick ➡ Cracked Stone Brick
    Netherrack ➡ Nether Brick
    Clay Blocks → Terracotta
    Dyed Terracotta → Glazed Terracotta

    I was just about to suggest a kiln! I always had a problem where my blast furnace smelts fast, but sand, clay, cobble, etc weren't able to be in the blast furnace! This NEEDS to be in Minecraft!

    I do really think there should be a furnace variant that will smelt stone type items faster than a regular furnace, and the kiln is a suitable name for this.
    However my idea of this would be a Brick Kiln (it would be a furnace textured with bricks) And it would be crafted by surrounding a regular furnace with 8 Bricks instead of basalt. This I think would be more consistent compared with the other furnace variants (smoker and blastfurnace) since they are able to be crafted early on in the game so this Kiln should also be relatively easy to get access to.

    I think it's a great idea. I think having it be made of brick would have it look more distinct, however.

    The kiln should be made like a blast furnace, but use basalt instead of iron and nether bricks instead of smooth stone. In real life, kilns are made from special bricks, and nether bricks would make sense for fire bricks, because they come from the nether. It could smelt these things faster:

    • Stone, sandstone, and quartz to smooth variants.
    • Cobbles to stone
    • Stone, blackstone and nether bricks to cracked  variants
    • Sand to glass
    • Clay to bricks/terracotta
    • Terracotta to glazed terracotta
    • Netherrack to nether bricks
    • Any new bricks to cracked variant
    • Any new stone to smooth variant.
