We bisque fire to cone 05 and glaze fire to cone 6 in electric kilns and have over 15 glazes to choose from.
All members are invited to participate in our monthly open studios sale and the larger spring and holiday sales in May and December. This is a great opportunity to show your work and sell it to the public.
If you would like to become a member, please contact us to make an appointment for a studio orientation. Please allow up to 2 business days for a response. All new members need an orientation and will pay in person rather than online.
Requirements: The only requirement is that you have a basic knowledge of clay and glaze, meaning no instruction is required for you to work in the studio freely.
