FAQs - here you will find answers to (hopefully) all your questions

Basic information about pottery and firing service with us

make your own pottery

You can design clay freely, according to your ideas. Just come to us with your idea and preferably with a few things that can get dirty. Also with children. Children love clay and pottery. In the calendar above you can see when a specialist will be there to help you and instruct you in the workshop.

And of course we have clay there, as well as different glazes for high and low firing, which you can use with us. Afterwards you can also have your piece fired with us.

paint ceramics

We also have pre-turned cups, bowls and jugs, of course from the workroom and handmade. You can buy and paint them at reasonable prices. Just come by and pick out your favorite piece. In the calendar above you can see when a professional is there to help you with the glazes.

Firing service - procedure and tips if you want to have clay fired by us

processing of the ceramics

You can bring your workpieces designed at home dried to us. It is advantageous to bring the workpieces to the firing while they are still wet, as they are less susceptible to breakage during transport. They will then continue to dry in the workshop. After bisque firing, you can glaze the objects yourself. Afterwards, the pottery is glaze-fired and ready for pick-up. Important! During glaze firing, earthenware glazes (firing range up to 1050°C) and stoneware glazes (firing range up to 1280°C) may not be used together on one workpiece!!! Please follow the manufacturer's instructions on the package and the firing range of your glazes.

The right drying

Your workpieces must not be thicker than 3 cm. Thicker workpieces must be hollowed out so that they do not crack or burst during firing. The ceramics must not have any air pockets. Please carve your name or abbreviation into your pottery. Large pieces need about 2 weeks, smaller pieces can be dry after about a week. For the 1st firing, only fully dried objects can be fired without risk.

the first firing

The first firing takes place at 960°C. After this, your workpiece is ready for further processing.

glazing

You can glaze either at home or in the workshop. Depending on the frequency of painting and the shape of your pieces, you will get different results. Please always keep the surfaces of your workpieces free of glaze, otherwise they will fuse with the firing plate during glaze firing. By simply wiping with a wet sponge, the glaze will easily come off the vessel.

Glaze firing 2nd firing

After you have glazed your pieces, bring them in for the 2nd firing. The 2nd firing is started at a firing range of 1050°C (low firing). For stoneware glazes (high firing) you fire at a firing range of 1250°C (winter firing).

Note: We treat all workpieces as carefully as we treat our own work. However, something can break. This may be due to the clay processing, the clay itself (natural product) or the firing. We cannot accept any liability for this.
