We offer kiln rentals to the general public and the kiln is available for use for all that utilize Black Hound's studio. Our rates for kiln firing vary depending on membership level and whether or not you are enrolled in a class.

Black Hound's kiln is a Skutt 1027. it is approximately 27" deep and about 23" wide. The kiln is divided into three rings, each 9" high and 23" wide. We charge by the full kiln, half kiln or by the ring (one third kiln)

We fire up to Cone 6. The rental price is the same no matter what temperature you are firing to.
