If you're within a two-hour radius of our shop in Norristown, PA, we can come to you to repair or inspect your kiln!

Simply fill out this short form and one of our skilled technicians will contact you as soon as possible!

 

 

CONSULTING - If you need professional support for any number of ceramics-based projects (from setting up a new studio, to having our lab test a run of glazes for you), we can help to get you on the right track with our expertise.

 

CUSTOM PROJECT - If you are ordering custom decals, yet you don't have a background in layout or design, our design staff can help you. For an hourly fee, we can make sure that your custom project will look good and meet the file requirements for printing. We have also worked with the area art organizations, such as the ICA, The Fabric Workshop, The University of the Arts, The Clay Studio and many individual artists and businesses to help them complete special projects. Maybe you need a thousand skull mugs glazed for your catalog. Maybe your Etsy site is exploding and you can't keep up, or maybe you won a public art contest and now you have to actually make the project a reality. Call today to speak to someone to help.

 

FIRING RETAIL - This is a very popular service that we feature.  If you are in need of a kiln to bisque-fire or glaze-fire your ceramic work, we offer several different sizes for a range of prices, starting at $35. We are also happy to take on long-term projects requiring kiln firing services -- over the years, we have worked with artists, museums, galleries, and production outfits to fire large volumes of work for specific projects. Contact us for a pricing quote for your unique project.

 

GLAZE MIXING - This is one of our most popular services. Allow us to dry and/or wet mix your own glaze recipe. Simply email your formula to MaggieFretz@theceramicshop.com and we will work up a quote. We can even store your glaze in our system so it will be easier the next time you order. We are currently providing this service to universities, art centers and many private businesses and individuals in the Greater Philadelphia area and beyond. If you don't feel like stocking all that cobalt carbonate or your program is not so keen on ordering and storing glaze chemicals in the shared studio space, then give us a call and let us be your own glaze tech. Minimum order for custom dry glaze mixing is 1 pound (approx. 545 grams) and the minimum for wet mixing is 1 gallon (approx. 6 lbs of dry material or 2722 grams).

 

SHIPPING - If you order a new kiln for your studio or home, and your building does NOT have a loading dock, this is the section where you can purchase access to a lift gate, which will move your brand-new kiln from the delivery truck's bed  down to the ground. If you have any questions about our services, we’re glad to answer them! Give us a call today!
