Some wait times may be as long as 2 weeks. After glazing, the pieces must be fired once more. A phone call will be made once pieces are unloaded from the glaze fire and are ready for pick up.

At this time, it is mandatory to wear masks during our classes. Soap, water, and hand sanitizer are available for use. Stations will be cleaned thoroughly. This is subject to change depending on CDC and state guidelines. Thank you for understanding.
