Our glaze colors are non-toxic and lead-free. We recommend wearing comfortable, casual clothes that you do not mind getting stained. Though most of the glaze, paint, clay and materials we use will easily wash out of your clothing, there are some glaze, paint, clay and materials that may permanently stain.
After your Clay Date, we have to let the pieces dry thoroughly. If your pieces have any remaining moisture or the kiln is too full when we fire the next kiln, they will wait until the following firing. We usually fire greenware (bone dry raw clay) to bisque (a true ceramic clay that hasn't reached maturity) around every 14 days depending on fullness of kiln. I do NOT fire parcial kilns unless you pay a rush partial kiln firing fee of $45, we ask that you call or text to be sure before making the trip in case your piece did not make it into the kiln yet.
Once your pieces have been fired to bisque (bisc or bisquit, the terms for first firing) you can come in and paint your piece and it should be fired in 7 to 14 days (excessive pieces or not enough pieces can delay this estimate) we will text or call you. Kevin Matthews Pottery / Glaze 2 Amaze is not responsible for the unpainted pieces left longer than 60 days from the time KMP or G2A texts or calls you after they come out of the bisque kiln or the glaze kiln. You can come in and paint your pieces within the 60 days during walk-in hours or contact us and schedule a no cost reservation time
