Brisbane Kiln Hire
Artisan Avenue is home to two kilns, and offers in-house kiln firing services. We will personally fire your items and speak with you to ensure you are getting what you want from your kiln firing. With over forty years experience, your creations are in safe hands with Jude.
The largest shelf in the kiln has the capacity to fire 500mm x 500mm pot bases (height of 200mm).
Brisbane Bisque Firing
This is an essential step in the pot making process and the most popular kind of firing. Kiln heat to Cone 04 (1020 degrees celsius). Max height of pots = 30cm.
$9.00 for 1kg of clay to bisque
Brisbane Cone 6 firing
We offer Cone 6 firing, allowing your creations to be fired up to 1220 degrees celsius. This is a more intermediate form of firing, allowing your pots to become vitrified and waterproof.
Your glaze MUST have been tested prior to using the kiln, on more than 1 pot and on your clay body. The clay body must be suitable for Cone 6 temperatures. If you wish to test in our kilns, all pieces MUST have paddies, 2cm wider than the piece you are testing.
Bottoms of pots must be waxed and clean to 1cm from kiln shelf and your name or ID stamp must be on each item to be fired.
