Bisque Firing Weekly Pass

Are you making work at home right now and are eager to have your pieces fired? You can buy a pass to drop-off your work at the Studio on Sundays and we’ll bisque fire it for you. We will also apply a clear glaze to your work upon request. Additional glazing offerings can be found here. We will also provide you with an opportunity to glaze you work when we are able to reopen the Studio. 

Please purchase a pass for the week you plan to drop off your work; you may purchase as many weeks as you like.
