*Note: pricing is approximate. Additional charges will be made for rush orders. Additional surcharges may be added by technicians upon evaluation of pieces at time of delivery.


  • Pieces must be 100% ready to go into the kilns upon drop-off: No touch-ups or glazing inside the shared area of the studios.

  • Payment is required upon drop-off. Akin technicians will facilitate immediate payment by cash or credit card upon drop-off of the work.

  • Pick-up of finished ceramic work is immediate and is required within a day of finished firing. There is so little room for storage at the studios. Ceramicists are not permitted to leave pieces for more than 24 hours of their finished firings. Pick-up date and time should be established with the technician at drop-off.
