We strongly recommend that you purchase your cone 5-6 clay or slip from the studio which will ensure you can also use our glazes. We have 12 different cone 5-6 clay bodies available for purchase and maintain an inventory of 40 to 50 cone 5-6 glazes at all times. If you bring pieces made with non-studio clay, you must provide proof of purchase and exact cone reference for the clay and the glazes you intend to use. For more information, visit the Firing Services page.
Do not call us to find out if your work has been fired. We fire thousands of pieces a week and can not go search for yours.
Please come back to the studio 10 days after dropping your piece to be fired, this is generally enough time to guarantee that your piece has been fired and unloaded from the kiln. Rushed firing service (48-72 hours turn around per firing) is available for 16 cents / cubic inch per firing
