Useable kiln space 53 cm’s (21 inches) wide and 68 cm (27 inches) deep.
Firings will be done based on cone temperature. If you are unsure about what Cone you need pease refer to this conversion chart https://www.hot-clay.com/media/wysiwyg/CMS-PDFs/Firing_Chart_with_Cone_Equivalents.pdf
I fire to Cones 19, 06, 5 with a 5 min hold and 6 with a 20 min hold. If you need another temperature you will need to hire the whole kiln.
If not hiring the whole kiln you will have to wait until I have enough work to fill the kiln.
Please allow up to 48 hours for kiln to fire and cool down. Pick up of work to be made shortly after kiln has cooled.
All pieces are fired at your own risk. FJD Ceramics can not be held accountable for items that are damaged during unpacking loading, firing, unloading or storage. Items will be unloaded and loaded onto a shelf. It will be up to you to pack up your work.
Please be careful about pot bottoms or running glazes. If you ruin a shelf you will be charged £100 to replace (as this is what it costs to replace). If you are unsure about a glaze and how it will react/run I will test it for you free of charge.

Over 8 Inches will be priced individually depending on hight.
