Firing services

Things to know before booking firing services with us:

  • Payment is processed on-site by Interac or credit card, we do not accept cash
  • Clay and glaze from outside of the studio are allowed, but you must first confirm with us by providing an image of clay/glaze packaging by email. Please wait for our approval email before coming to the studio. 
  • For all glazes that are indicated cone 5-6 and not specifically cone 6, you must verify with us if they can be used, in order to avoid damage to our kiln shelves. 
  • Make sure all pieces are well packed when you bring them (to be bisque or glaze fired)
  • Glazing your pieces in our food-safe glazes is possible (see fees below). If you wish to glaze your work at our studio, you will need to book studio time before arriving with your work. If you have never glazed before, you will need to book a glazing demonstration.
