We're happy to fire pieces of pottery you've made yourself. For clay to become ceramic, it must be fired in a kiln. This is known as bisque or biscuit firing. After bisquing, it's up to you what you want to do with your ceramic item.
To paint your own pottery creations in store at Paint your Style:
Help yourself from our colour bar and paint your pottery creations. We then glaze and fire your pieces for you. The price depends on the size of your item. We offer this service exclusively for pottery you've made yourself!
Pricing example: shallow dish, Ø 10 cm, approx. € 6.00.
To paint your own pottery creations at home:
Help yourself from our colour bar and bottle our paints at affordable prices to use at home. In addition to this are the costs for glaze firing (see below for pricing).
BISQUE FIRING / BISCUIT FIRING
Bisque firing is priced by weight: € 0.80 per 100 g or part thereof (€ 8.00/kg). If you have larger volumes of your own handmade pottery to fire, it may be cheaper to book a whole kiln. The price for a whole kiln bisque firing (at 1030°C) is € 85.00.
We offer bisque firing on fixed dates.
At our Bergmannstrasse location we fire on the third Wednesday of each month.
GLAZE FIRING / FINAL FIRING
Glaze firing is priced by weight: € 1.00 per 100 g or part thereof (€ 10.00/kg). For items under 200 g, a flat rate of € 3.00 per item applies. This firing includes careful hand-glazing with our transparent glaze as well as the firing itself.
Please note: we accept no liability for pottery you've made yourself. We only fire paints and glazes from our own range. We offer this firing service exclusively for unglazed pottery items you've made yourself
