Kiln Firings

Electric kiln firing costs are included in the membership and punch card options above. For those who have a studio at home and need to get ceramics work fired please see the table of prices below to determine your cost.

For kilns loaded and fired by LUX staff the turnaround time is usually within two weeks.

For kilns loaded and fired by the artist themselves they must first pass a skills check. If you have fired many times before, this is just a brief conversation between you and our Studio Coordinator. If you have only fired a few times or have never fired an electric kiln, our Studio Coordinator will go through the firing process with you beforehand - this cost $35 for the 1 hour lesson. Kilns can only be loaded and unloaded during open studio hours or LUX business hours.

Email info@luxcenter.org to schedule your firing or to sign up for a Studio Membership or Studio Punch Card.
