We do not take responsibility for damages to your pieces that may occur in the firing
NOTE: If you bring in pieces for firing with clays and/or glazes that do not come from our studio, we highly recommend you have private liability insurance as damages to our equipment can be costly.
In order to ensure a smooth process, please follow the instructions below:
- Make sure your pieces are completely dry before you bring them in for a bisque fire
- Mark your pieces (either by carving or stamping your name). Unmarked pieces will not be accepted.
- For a glaze fire, make sure your bottoms are completely clear of glaze. You will be responsible for damages to kiln shelves.
- We do not bisque-fire pieces that are thicker than 2cm and not hollow.
- We require proof that the clay and glaze are compatible with our firing temperatures (1240C). We will not fire wild clay or any clay that did not come from a commercial package. If you have used engobes or any other surface decoration, you also need to show us proof of compatibility.
- Download and fill out the form below before you drop off your pieces and bring it with you to the studio.
If you plan on firing a lot and want to buy in bulk, we also offer firing credits. They will be deducted every time you come in for a firing. You do not have to purchase credits: you can always pay each time :)
