Where possible we tumble load during bisque fire, stacking your pots if it’s safe/viable to do so to save you money.
Where we have provided materials and done dip Glaze processing just double the bisque price.
Where we have supplied no glaze materials or associated processing, prices remain as bisque.
Note for external potters
If you would like us to fire for you please insure you provide your clay details – make and firing range and your glaze details – make and firing range. We are happy to provide shelf diameters and kiln dimensions on request.
Firing has multiple pit falls and whilst we take every precaution, things do go wrong. When trying new clays and glazes test tiles are always recommended and we take no responsibility for anomalies that occur when ‘in temperature range’ firings have been provided.
