We have three large gas kilns, the biggest we can fire is 24x24 inches wide by 40 inches high OR 32x32 inches wide by 32 inches high. We fire two bisque and three to four glaze kilns each week, reduction and oxidation firings. Please see below for pricing. Wait time is two weeks per firing, so plan accordingly. Rush fees available, but not guaranteed.
We also specialize in custom-made projects for TV, movies, commercials, etc. Anything that can be made out of clay - we can make it. We come out to the set if you need help setting up.

If you have a special project you made and need a place to fire it, we will be happy to do it for you. We fire cones 06, 6 and 10.Please have the following information ready: what type (cone) clay you use, how many firings you will need (bisque, or glaze, or both), what type of glaze you are applying (if any), how long the piece has been dry. If you are not sure of any of this, please refer to your school or vendor who sold you clay. A lot of information is available online. You may contact one of our instructors for a training session at $85 an hour. Please bring in your work on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays after 1 pm. Please e-mail us to make sure Ki is at the studio when you come. All work MUST be pre-paid and approved by Ki to be fired. Please don't leave your work unattended even if someone told you it's okay. Turn around is about two weeks per firing, depending on our load.
