We fire in electric kilns for all regular and tableware items.
Sometimes....we use a small gas kiln for raku and similar work.
The complete process takes about two weeks.
First the new clay is prepared for use..then the piece is made as a slab
or wheel creation..natural drying follows...
then the first (bisque) firing for about 8 hours to 1800F.
Application of glaze is next, followed by the final firing for completion. Another 8 hours and about 2200 F.
Dinnerware items are then dishwasher and oven safe.
All clays and glazes are food safe and non toxic.
