The process of how to fire your clay work

For something made in the studio

" The firing price list is on the website, please check the price depending on the clay work size then decide which ones you want to fire, which one you want to take home. the clay work can be stored in the studio one month after made maximumly. After one month will be discarded if nobody collected them.

The price depends on the size before first fire, the size measurements will do before firing. Please be noticed that there is 10-16% shrinkage for each fire depending on different clay. You are welcome to come and watching the technician measure the clay work BEFORE the first fire. After the payment and the signed declaration arrived the technician will fire the clay works. No refund available by any reason after fire.

There are twice fire for each art work. First bisque fire, second time glaze fire. The price is for one fire only. We will not measure again before glaze fire.

The finished artwork can be stored in Lalita's studio two months maximumly. After two months the artwork will be discarded if nobody collect them. Please remember to take your artwork home after the firing.

Thanks for your understanding.

However for fire the clay work from outside my studio is a bit complicated process. Only because it's an unknown clay, you will need to find the original clay bag or instruction book to show how high degree of the kiln will suit the clay. As different clay needs different temperature. Or cone range ( how fast the temperature increase). Wrong temperature can cause problems. Also we need to use the same clay to do a test fire before your artwork. Sometimes maybe ok, but sometimes the results shows that my kiln cannot fire some clay. ( also the cone range is important)You have to take the risk by yourself. Even the test or the fire failed you still need to pay the firing fee. Also depends on the artwork as well. Some people do a big solid sculpture, that can not be fired at all. If it's a sculpture need to be hollow/ air-corn one. I need to see the clay work in different case to know we can fire or not. So fire some clay work which made outside of my studio Can be a bit complicated.

What is the basic process of a ceramic piece?

hire a wheel---wheel throwing (make the clay body) ---dry few days---first fire( bisque fire)----glaze or /under glaze( draw on the ceramic)--dry few days----second time glaze fire----done
