DIPPING GLAZES AND FIRING

If you'd like your work glazed in a single colour we can dip it for you. Please ensure all work is clearly marked with your initials (as it goes through two firings, a bisque and then a glaze firing and work gets mixed up in the kiln packing) and add a note to your work when dropping it off to let us know which glazes you have chosen.

How to calculate and pay

1) Choose your glaze option

  • Firing without dipping (if you have glazed the work yourself)

  • Clear Dipping

  • Or any of the coloured glazes

2) Calculate the number of units

We charge for firing per 50grams. So weigh your work, when dry or bisque fired, then divide by 50. This is the number of units you pay for (for example 875grams/50 = 18, so you would pay for 18 units).

How long will it take

All together 2weeks. We fire regularly but it takes 2 days for each for each of the bisque and glaze firings, for the kiln to reach full temperature and cool  (1000 degrees and 1240 degrees) with time needed in between for glazing work and loading the kiln, so please allow at least two weeks between dropping off green work and collecting.
