Kiln Rentals at Moorestown Pottery Studio

Perkins is pleased to offer a new service to ceramics students.  Firings will occur between class sessions and are limited to a first come, first served basis.

The price indicated is for standard slow firing cycles. Any firings with special requirements such as ramp/holds, or customized program firings are subject to additional fees. For all glaze firings the pieces must be properly cleaned off on the bottom. If work is not properly wiped off, studio staff may need to clean the bottoms of pieces or stilt work to prevent items sticking to studio shelves. This may incur additional fees to cover labor costs. We will reach out by phone or email prior to taking any such action.

Waiver Required and requested at checkout or before starting firing.  By choosing to fire with Perkins Center you will be asked to indemnify and hold harmless Perkins Center for the Arts for any pieces that may crack, break, blister, explode or that may merit any unsatisfactory result. Furthermore, you may be responsible for any damage to our kilns cause by your pieces should they, melt, explode, or damage the kiln during an otherwise proper firing.
