Contactless Pottery Drop-off & Pickup

For the safety of our patrons and staff, we will be offering contactless drop-off & pick-up for all kiln firings. The firing schedule will be determined by the number of pieces waiting, and the type of firing needed (bisque vs. glaze). We will only fire the kiln once there are enough pieces for a full firing. Pieces should be dropped off by 4 p.m. on Wednesdays.
