-Bisque firing is the first firing that hardens clay before it can be painted with glaze and fired a 2nd time to a shiny glazed finish
-Clay requires adequate drying time before it can be bisque fired. Drying can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks before it can be bisque fired, longer if really thick. We will call you when your bowl has be bisque fired and is ready for painting. You may walk-in anytime during open hours for painting within 6 months after the date of the call (we will try to call with a 2nd and 3rd reminder, if needed). If you come for painting after 6 months the cost for painting glaze onto your piece and glaze firing is $10 (or pick up as is and paint at home with acrylic paint without firing) We will hold pottery wheel bowls for up to 8 months, after that we cannot guarantee to hold it any longer. Please communicate with us if you need additional hold time, we have been know to keep things for over several years if needed.
