FAQs

  • Can we fire terracotta? keyboard_arrow_right

    Yes, in bisque. No, in glaze.

    Terracotta has a lower firing range than 1200 degrees Celsius and will melt at this temperature.

  • Can we fire to stoneware? keyboard_arrow_right

    No, the kiln does not support that temperature requirement.

  • Will the pieces be food safe? keyboard_arrow_right

    Yes, pieces glazed and fired at 1200 degrees Celsius will be food, dishwasher and microwave safe.
