We are now accepting work from members of the community for bisque and glaze firing.
Community members interested in having their work fired at Arbutus should be aware that our students’ work always takes precedence in kiln space, and we cannot meet requests for firing services on a deadline.
Our firings are to cone 6. Payment is required at drop-off – cash, credit, and check accepted.
Firing fees are as follows:
$60 per firing
$30 per firing
$15 per firing
By the Square Foot
$4 per firing
Minimum Firing Fee
$8 (bisque firing + glaze firing)
All work dropped off for firing must be labeled with name, date, and type of clay.Work may not include any combustible materials (e.g. wood, newspaper) and must not be solid or extremely thick.Work must be removed from containers and placed on Arbutus ware boards. Any packaging or containers you leave in the studio will be discarded.
Drop-off of work is by appointment only, arranged by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be connected with our Studio Manager, Kate, to arrange a time. As of now, we often plan for drop-off and pick-up of work on Mondays between 9am-12pm, and between 6pm-9pm – but please wait to confirm with Kate by email.
Expect firing to be completed within 2 weeks. Work must be picked up within 6 weeks of drop-off. If you need an extension, you can call 360-350-0187 or email email@example.com. If you do not pick up your work within 6 weeks of drop-off or make arrangements for an extension with our staff, your work will be discarded.
If your work damages our kiln shelves, we will ask you to reimburse our purchase of a replacement.
