Pottery Kiln Firing Service

Are you a local ceramics artist, potter or looking to start out creating with clay and need a kiln to fire your clay creations?

I offer a kiln firing service and have strict conditions around this. My kilns create my livelihood in my studio so I’m particular what I fire in them and how and when. Other than that, I am happy to offer advice to you and discuss your requirements.

I fire my kilns up to 1100 celsius if the firing temperature of your clay requires higher than this, I am sorry we can’t do it for you. This is to protect the life of my kilns they are as you will know an expensive machine to purchase.
The kiln I use most frequently for this has shelf width 18.5inches and total height is 64 inches.

I do not fire clay containing paper or organic materials due to the amount of smoke it creates when firing.
I do not fire lustres on due to the chemicals emitted in the firing.

Availability for firing depends on how busy we are at the time. Note we do not have holding space so the drop off date and pick up dates to us need to be made in advance.

Clay firing; £45 per kiln firing

*It needs to arrive to me ready for firing so has been drying for a minimum of 10 days, for large items this maybe a month.

Glaze firing; £45 per kiln firing

* You must use compatible colours/glazes for your type of clay and provide the firing temperature for these colours
* Your work must arrive ready glazed and dry – minimum of 24 hours drying.

Decal / transfer firing; £40 per kiln firing

* Must arrive with these applied and dried.

Terms and Conditions
I will load the kiln so you do not need to know how to do this, but you must know how to prepare and glaze work for the kiln so that it will not cause kiln damage. Please be aware that you will be responsible for the cost of any damage to the kiln (shelf, elements, ceramic bricks, thermocouple, etc.) caused by incorrectly prepared work. Fired 4 U limited will fire work according to time and temperature as recommended for the particular glazes and clay used which you provide to us. Whilst every care is taken in firing your work, please remember that handmade ceramics are affected by many factors which affect the final outcome, including construction technique, cracking due to shrinkage, thickness of the clay, glaze composition, drying time, and stresses during transport. Fired 4 U limited cannot accept any responsibility for any unsatisfactory results or damage to your work resulting from firing. I have read and accept the terms & conditions *
