Firing Fees

Firing fees apply to all work done by our studio potters and any work from our regular students that exceeds the 10 piece maximum of each class.

Absolute Minimum Firing Charges:

     $2-Low Fire Glaze, or Hand Made Greenware (Cone 05-06)

     $2.50-High Fire (Cone 4-6) Glaze

The firing fee is based on the maximum dimension:

Cone 5/62.52.7533.253.53.7544.555.56

Rules, Limitations and Exclusions

*Items between sizes are rounded up to the larger size for pricing purposes.

High Fire Items (Cone 6) will often take longer (2+ weeks) to fire, due to their higher temperature and spacing needs.

We do not fire anything larger than 12 inches.

We do not fire anything from outside of our studio at this time.

The only addition to clay and glazes that may be fired is kanthal wire.  No newspaper, glass, cold wax, styrofoam, leaves, plastic, glass, marbles, bones, etc may be left in the clay for the firing process. Inclusion of these items could result in a permanent loss of firing services.

If you create an item with a lid or stacking parts and the parts have to be fired individually, they will be charged individually.

Any item that requires special firing instructions such as pieces being stilted or delicately balanced is an automatic $5 upcharge and will most likely also result in a longer waiting period for firing.

The studio reserves the right to, at any time, for any reason, refuse to fire any piece. 

Remember our studio is a public place where people from all different walks of life gather.  We appreciate that you keep the content of your artwork sensitive to those around you.  Please refrain from drug paraphernalia or excessive profanities.
