Need a night in? TakeAway Clay kits offer an all in one service. You can select a glaze and fire kit for functional ceramics, these can be dropped off to our studio for completion.
The Air-dry clay kits can be used for decorative or sculptural pieces. You can have your pieces fired at any local kiln at a later stage if required or just coat with acrylic paint and seal with varnish to waterproof your pieces.
All clay in the kits can be fired and glazed. If you don't want the extra cost at the time of purchase then an Airdry kit is for you and if you decide to fire and glaze it later, you can contact my studio for the cost of firing and glazing or a local pottery studio closer to your home - no problem! Their is a National Kiln directory to locate your nearest kiln. Click here for more details or check the smountainceramics website for kiln hire details.
Fire and Glaze clay kits - the cost of firing and glazing are included in the 1 & 2 kg kits with a selection of studio glaze colours to chose from.
