Dec. 17, 2012: We killed the kiln this week.


Friends, I am writing with an update about holiday pottery timelines.

Our kiln quit this week and here’s what you need to know:

  • If you glazed work in the last week, it is in pottery purgatory right now. It is about to be transported to one of three other locations to finish its firing journey. If all goes well, it should be ready to pick up this Wednesday.

  • If you created work in the last ten days, it is not yet ready to glaze. We will be transporting it off-site to bisque fire once all the glazed pottery is out of purgatory.

  • If your work is intended to gift this Christmas, please reschedule your glaze day for Wednesday, Dec. 21. To the best of our ability, we will load this work to fire that night and be ready to pick up Friday, Dec. 23. This is our aim, but not guaranteed.

  • If your work is not intended to be a holiday gift, please schedule glaze time for January 2023.

I am so sorry for the inconvenience this causes, friends, especially this week of all weeks. At the same time, I am humbled and deeply grateful for the kindness and generosity of our pottery community. As you cross paths with Rob McPherson of Pullman High School’s ceramics program, and Wendt Pottery in Lewiston, please know that they have not hesitated one second to provide assistance and solutions as we navigate this challenge, donating their time and energy at odd hours—on multiple days in a row!-- to help get you your holiday pottery in time for gifting.

Pottery friends are the best kind of friends, but you already knew that. 😀

Stay tuned for more updates in about two days as we determine next steps,


PS—Want to help? Please book workshops for January and purchase 2023 gift cards—it provides us with an infusion of funds this month. As a new business, we do not qualify for credit, so bookings and sales are really the only way we are able to navigate emergencies and unexpected expenses.
