Kiln Rentals @ BHCS

Black Hound Clay Studio is happy to provide kiln rentals to those who make ceramic work offsite and need a place to fire their work. 

Kiln rentals at BHCS include loading, firing and unloading of work onto the dedicated rental shelf in the kiln room. Those renting kilns are not permitted to load, fire or unload the kiln themselves.

Those interested in kiln rental must download, read and sign our Kiln Rental Contract (coming soon!).
