Need to know:
These are the locally made Cone 5 clays I use to create the majority of my pieces. You will need access to a ceramics kiln to turn your creations into functionable objects. You can check with your local ceramics store to see if they offer a firing service. After being allowed to fully dry out, kiln fire to 04 (1945 degrees Fahrenheit) bisque. Glaze finish and fire to cone 5 (2167 degrees Fahrenheit) to complete.
