Firing Service

Cone 6 firing

Centered Ceramics offers small batch firing to temperatures:

  • 980°C Bisque

This is NOT a customizable, commercial or artist level firing service. We have hundreds of pots moving through the kilns and whilst all care is taken we make no promises for perfectly predictable firing conditions.

Fire at your own risk


Work is weighed, cost calculated and payment taken at drop off

  • $10 per kilo for Bisque
  • $15 per kilo for Glaze

Note minimum spend is $10 for bisque and $15 for glaze

Proof of clay and glazes used must be shown or established.

Please allow 2-3 weeks approximately for firing. Term students’ work could be prioritised when needed.

Customer is sent an SMS once firing is completed and will be asked to pick up work within 4 weeks.

If work is not collected it will be disposed of at the discretion of Centered Ceramics
