The prices indicated are for standard slow firing cycles. Any firings with special requirements such as ramp/ hold are subject to additional fees. Glaze firing greenware is prohibited. Pieces must have been bisque fired prior to glaze firing. Choplet studio is not to be hold responsible for a piece cracking, breaking, blistering, exploding or any other type of unsatisfactory result.

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 1 week after dropping your piece to be fired, this is generally enough time to insure your piece has been fired and unloaded from the kiln. Rushed bisque or glaze firing ( 2-3 days turn around) is 0.16 cents / cubic inch.
