“I know what I’m doing” pottery wheel rental If you have existing recent experience with wheel throwing, come and make use of our wheels without any instruction.
Includes two kilo of clay and baking and later painting of up to three items. The clay is not balled up, so you can divide it as you want. We can probably not store clay in progress.
Kinda, but it will be quite a bit more difficult as you have to use the knuckles more than the fingertips. It’s kinda possible, but we do not recommend it. We can’t do refunds or compensation if it doesn’t work out for you, sorry.
In some cases, yes. It depends on the circumstances at the time, like what kilns are available, how busy we are etc. There is no refund or compensation if the items break during the firing. If they broke in our kiln, they’d have broken if you’d fired them in your own.
We only do cone 04 clay firings so the clay must be “low fire cone 04” clay. If it is “high fire” clay see below for full kiln pricing. You will need to bring a clear picture of the box the clay came in so we can check the type
For the firing you pay for the space you need. Minimum space is the room taken up by four standard mugs next to each other, which will cost $35. Each additional “mug space” is $10. Tall items may come with extra charges.
A full cone 04 kiln load is $100 so if you have many items, it’ll be most efficient to get a full load. You will load the kiln yourself under supervision. Full kiln firings to higher temperatures is possible with a $50 extra charge. Painting of the fired items is not included the price.
Sorry, it’s not possible for us to store work-in-progress in the studio. If your project is not finished, we’ll wrap it up safely in a box and you take it home where you can finish it before bringing it back for firing.
A clay project dries over the course of a day or so under cover, and if left too long it becomes too dry to work on, so it’s best to take it home to do detail carving etc.
