Firing Services Now Available
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:
|Full Kiln||$60 per firing|
|Half Kiln||$30 per firing|
|Quarter Kiln||$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 email@example.com. 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 at the times listed below, but please wait to confirm with Kate by email.
- Mondays between 9am-12pm
- Mondays between 6pm-9pm
- Thursdays between 2-5pm
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
