How it works
The Pick-Up: Choose which kit you want and order it online. Your kit will be waiting for you during operating hours Tuesday-Sunday as requested through their contactless curbside pickup.
The Drop-off: After creating your beautiful pieces you can drop them off at the gallery for firing. They will be fired, glazed, and ready for pick-up one to two weeks later (the gallery will email you when your artwork is ready to pick up). It takes 2-3 weeks for them to bisque fire and glaze fire pieces. The studio team individually dips functional pieces in a clear glaze for a food-safe finish. This 2-3 period includes waiting for pieces to be air-dry before they go in the kiln. They wait for pieces to be fully dry to reduce risk of pieces cracking and exploding in the kiln.
Firing costs are included in the kit price. Finished pieces are dishwasher and microwave safe. Visit the gallery’s Youtube page for online tutorials about basics of working with clay and project ideas.
