After you have made the booking online we will be in touch within the next 12 hours in order to arrange the firing with you. In your confirmation email you will find the form - please fill it up in order for us to know the details of your firing. 

We try to be as accomodating as possible and book the firings as soon as we can.
However, when the studio is busy, the waiting time can be up to 3 weeks.  

If the firing is urgent, please contact us in advance, before booking, to make sure we have an opening in the schedule. 
When we have arranged the firing date and time, we will ask you yo deliver your work to our studio.


You may need to be present for both loading and unloading the kiln, depending on the nature of your work. Depending on the size of your kiln the wait time once firing has commenced can be up to 3 days to allow the kiln to cool fully.  
There will always be a technician present to assist if you require it.

Please note that we cannot fire anything that creates a vast amount of smoke: paper clay, clay with organic materials, newspaper et.c. 

Anything wet will not be allowed in the kiln as it will damage the elements.

We have sand available for use but if you are worried about glaze dripping onto the shelves please provide your own sacrificial clay slabs or tiles to fire under any hazardous pieces.

Make sure to properly wipe any bases from glaze in advance.


We will let you know in advance when the pieces will be fired and ready to collect. Make sure to collect the work on the day agreed. 


If after the bisque firing you need desk space to glaze your work in our studio - book it by the hour. Feel free to use our glazes or bring your own glaze, tools, materials.  Book a Glazing Session HERE.

If you have used our Test Kiln (meaning you have small amount of work) and you are using your own glazes - you are welcome to book a Drop-in session and glaze your pieces then.


If your work causes any damage to the kiln (shelf, elements, ceramic bricks, thermocouple etc.) you will be liable for repair costs or replacements. While all care is taken handling your work, Decima Clay Studio is not responsible for breakages or glaze mishaps that happen during the firing.

We ask to please feel free to ask ahead if you have any queries.

Please, read all the Terms&Condition.
