All open studio members work is fired by the LOAM staff. The cost is included in the price of the clay.
LOAM Clay Studio will also fire work made outside the studio. All firings are by full kiln loads only. Potters must call first to make an appointment and reserve a kiln. No walk-ins please. The pieces must be dry and ready to fire. The costs are as follows:
Single average sized item (e.g. mug) firing is $20/piece
Bisque firing: $155 for a full kiln load in a 10 cubic foot kiln or $115 for a 7 cubic foot kiln
Glaze firing: $185 for a full kiln load in a 10 cubic foot kiln or $140 for a 7 cubic foot kiln.
There is a tiny test kiln also available at $25/firing for active open studio members or $35/firing for non-active-members.
An active member is one who makes their work at LOAM clay studio and has purchased their clay with regular firing included.
All bisque firing is to cone 06 and glaze firing to cone 6.
Glaze firings include the use of our glazes and a maximum of 2 hours of studio time for every kiln booked in order to glaze your work. If extra time is required, this will have to be purchased. To book a firing email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 613 722 2529
