Kiln Rental

Kiln Rentals

Medalta’s Shaw Centre is a state-of-the-art ceramic residency facility with a soda kiln, salt kiln, large gas car kiln, Blaauw gas kiln, and seven electric kilns. Although we use them a lot for our residencies and workshops, we also rent them out.

If you don’t have easy access to a specific kiln where you are, consider using ours. It can be a great way for an individual or group to experiment with new firing techniques.

Varying cost options listed below, all kiln rentals are GST exempt. Includes use of studio glazes, support material, and one day of studio use. Prices valid until December 31, 2019.
