Is my pottery ready?

Check the table to see if your pottery is ready.

Pottery takes about 2-3 weeks to dry and fire but can take longer depending on things like thickness of clay, ambient temperatures and other factors.

We keep pottery for 3 weeks after it is fired, which is about 45 days from the date of your experience.

Once your pottery is ready for pick up, stop by the studio during open hours.

Make sure you bring the email you received when you checked out. Your email will contain your name, photos and firing token which will help you identify your pottery in the studio.

An appointment is not needed to pick up and/or glaze pottery but please allow enough time to pull your pottery from our shelves. We fire hundreds of items each week and it can take a minute to spot your pottery.

Once you have your pottery, you can either take it home or apply a lead-free glaze. If you take it home, it will be like a terracotta pot – it will not be food safe but you can use it for decorative purposes.

If you choose to add a glaze, your pottery will need to be glaze fired. You add color and clear glaze in the same session.

Once glazed and fired, your pottery will be dishwasher and microwave safe.

We update the status when all the projects from the firing token group is complete; the status may not change for 5-7 days.  If you glazed your pottery (painted on color/glaze), be sure to use the token color from your most recent visit not the token color from when you made the pottery. 

*If you requested Glazed by Smashed, please add 2-3 weeks after your experience date or text 832-655-7879 for the status update.
