We're always happy to help you find just the right project and we are dedicated to help you feel great about anything you choose to do.
Firing Outside Pieces
Beginning in January, 2017, doodlebug will fire some outside pieces based on our discretion and kiln availability. We will rely on your judgment to ensure that any items fired in our kilns have been properly prepared, to avoid any explosive results!
Firing fees for individual pieces vary by type/cone of piece(s). The basic price for 1 - 600 cubic inches in low fire kiln (07-03) is $16.50.*
There are additional charges (as necessary) for stilting, preheating and other special requests. To avoid breakage or "explosions" during the firing process you need to:
Wedge your clay well before starting your project
Avoid air pockets when sculpting/assembling
Be sure pieces are completely dry throughout
*An example of a piece requiring 600 cubic inches is a box measuring 10" x 10" x 6"
$85 for Use of the Entire Small Kiln
Please note: Most firings are low fire (07-03). High firings may require renting an entire kiln and a 15% markup will apply. Additional charges also apply for glazing and/or loading. We must see and assess items before committing to any outside firing.
