Frequently Asked Questions
What type of clay is in the kits?
We're a sucker for super speckly ceramics, so we've recently updated our clay to be BRT clay.
BRT can be fired at earthenware, stoneware and mid fire temperatures.
Inside each kit you will find detailed firing instructions. Take a pic of this and show the kiln when you're ready to get blazed!
**If you ordered before Friday 24th July 2020, then your clay is Mid Fire 33, earthenware.**
Can I fire the clay at home?
Unfortunately not, you can't. .
Clay that is to be used for holding food or liquid needs to be fired at over 1,000 degrees.
We will literally give someone $1 million when they figure out how to fire earth clay in their home ovens tho so...
How long can I leave my creations before firing them?
For like EVER. Seriously.
You can leave them on your shelves for years. Just brush the dust off before you fire them!
You must leave them for at least 10 days to dry before you take them to a kiln though. Especially if they're quite thick!
How long does shipping take?
Our free shipping option usually takes about 2-5 days. Express (only $10 extra) is about 1-3 days, depending on where you're located!
Where is my closest kiln?
We are ALWAYS looking to find more Kilns, we've been compiling a list here.
However, always be sure to call or email them first before dropping in.
How do I glaze my work?
Firstly, your work needs to be bisque fired before it's glazed. Our clay works with pretty much any glaze, all you need to know is that the speckles will naturally come through once your work has had it's final firing.
We love a simple white or clear glaze, but it's totally up to you! Make sure you apply 3 coats of glaze to your creations!
Where do I choose the colour?
Your Kiln homies will help you choose your glaze of glory.
Can I eat it?
What the heck! No.
But seriously, if you're getting messy with little ones make sure they don't try and eat the clay as it contains some harmful particles.
Can I come over soon?
Do you like small chickens wearing Mexican hats?
I mean, the thought doesn't offend me.
