Rent a DCC Kiln
Purchase a firing in one of District Clay's electric or gas kilns. You can schedule a bisque firing, a glaze firing or both. District Clay will load, fire and unload work. You can also use District Clay's studio glazes* for an additional fee (20% surcharge).
We only rent whole kiln loads. You can list your name to share kiln space with potential firing partners by going here.
Once your firing is purchased, you will be emailed a firing order form to fill out.
If you have questions, please contact our firing manager, Chad Gunderson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

- We need at least two weeks to schedule a firing. If you need a firing in under two weeks, there is a 50% surcharge if we can accomodate you in our firing schedule.
- District Clay is not responsible for breakage or damage to ware resulting from a firing and reserves the right to reject ware that is too thick or is improperly glazed (glaze should be at least 1/4 inch from bottoms of pot.)
- You should contact District Clay if your piece is an unusual shape or size (eg, very large ware that requires special handling) before purchasing a firing..
- By purchasing this firing, you agree you are responsible for any damage to DCC kiln shelves and elements caused by inappriopriate clay bodies (melted clay!), from runny or incorrectly formulated glazes that you supply or for damage caused by exploding pots. Please be sure your clay body and glaze is being fired at the appropriate cone. Inappropriate clay bodies or glazes can result in catastrophic damage to kiln shelves, elements and ware.
