Glaze firing greenware is prohibited. Pieces must have been bisque fired prior to glaze firing. BCI is not to be held responsible for a piece cracking, breaking, blistering, exploding, or any other type of unsatisfactory result.

Please call, text or email 1 week after dropping your piece to be fired, this is generally enough time to insure your pieces have been fired and unloaded from the kiln.
