    My kids and I have a wheel and want to start making some pots. Any crafty type folks here know of a place I can get the pieces fired when we make something we want to keep? Thanks!

    I know the Columbus Cultural Arts Center offers pottery classes, but I don’t know if they offer their kiln for stuff made elsewhere.

    Hello! I have a 7 foot cubic kiln that can fire 3 (21 inch diameter sized) shelves full of pottery. I am on the East side and own and operate my own little studio out of my home. Our kiln is in the garage and she fires beautifully. I would check to see which clay you are using to make sure it is compatible with mine so we could fire at the same time. I can also recommend you some great clay! You can contact me through my website for my clay studio at http://www.craftybynaturestudio.com or you can email me to [email protected] – Thanks and have a creative day! Karen

    Columbus Cultural Arts Center does have about 4 to 6 kilns, but they do not offer them for use by anyone outside of their students. (I am a student there). However I highly highly recommend Columbus Cultural Arts Center for the best priced and best all around ceramics class to take. They are very reasonable for the amount of quality instruction and time you get… about $65 per 8 classes (once a week, for 2 months roughly). You can’t beat it! Great environment for beginners and advanced and everyone in between.

    Thanks! Right now my kids are trashing the basement with some serious wheel throwing. The clay I got was the basic moist white recommended by Columbus Clay for the beginner. I will check out your website.

    Don’t know if this would interest you, but it’s worth asking. We have a couple pretty decent older kilns that are sitting unused in our storage building that we would sell cheap just to make room for more/other stuff. I don’t remember the brands or models at the moment, but I could check if you would be interested. We purchased them from Scioto Ceramics when they went out of business a few years ago.

    Only $100 each. I’ll get more info and pics if you want.

    (We have the capability to deliver also)

    Try Schiller Rec Center. Contact April in the art dept. It will probably be super cheap.

    Hey Derm – The clay I use at home and fire in my kiln is also the moist white clay from Columbus Clay! I am very familiar with that clay! I fire it all the time. It is actually very nice to work with. Let me know if you have any questions. If you would like me to fire your clay pieces in my kiln, let me know. I am sure I can offer a very reasonable rate. Email me if you want to have your items fired / glazed / finished. I am at [email protected]

    Thanks!
