Special Events
If you’re a pottery nerd, the term “kiln opening” may evoke images associated with the opening of a large wood or gas fired kiln.  Well, what about potters that use a small electric kiln?  I open my kiln every time I fire it, so technically, my kiln openings are legit!  I fire electric only (it’s the greenest choice) and my kiln is pretty darned small – 7 cubic feet. I just want to warn you well in advance because my kiln openings are small affairs, yet unique, and it can be exciting to witness the unloading of warm pottery and most importantly, be among the first to view and purchase pieces that come from that kiln.

Kiln openings will be announced a day ahead of the unloading of a new kiln load of pottery.  If you subscribe to our mailing list (just above) you will get notification of kiln openings, sales and workshops at Poterie LM Serafin Pottery.

Not too many folks know about the long process of making pottery by hand. At the kiln openings you can ask questions such as “How long does it take to fire the kiln?” Of course the answer is, “It depends!”
