The firing service is now closed for 2021


We will begin taking items again when we reopen in January 2022.

Many thanks to everyone who has fired items with us - it has been lovely seeing all the creativity there is out there!

We are pleased to offer a Firing Service to Christchurch potters, to both bisque and glaze fire work.    If you have items you would like to fire items please follow these easy steps:

Please note we fire 1000 deg C for a bisque firing and 1240 deg C for a glaze firing.  It is your responsibility to ensure your clay and glaze fit this firing temperature. (cone 6-7).

1.     Please bring your items into General Pottery.  You will need to

· Unpack your items

· Complete a firing form and price each item

· Take your packaging home with you

Please allow time to do this when you drop off your items.

From January 2022 payment for firing will be required when you drop off your items.


2. You will be contacted when your work is ready for collection.

  Please bring in your packaging and (until the end of December 2021) pay upon collection.
