Kiln Firings and Glazes
The Club will endeavor to allow members to have at least one bisque and two stoneware glaze firings a month. If you do not have sufficient work to fill a kiln, you may wish to share a firing with some other club members.
Check kiln availability on the kiln calendar below.
The Club only does Stoneware firings. Any requests for a program change need to be referred to Nigel.

The Cairns Potters Club has started a new system re firing of members pots in the club kilns.
If a potter does not want to hire a whole kiln , but only wishes to have a few pots included in either a club bisque or glaze firing in one of the kilns, then they must first pay $20 or more deposit to the club either by sending the money to the Cairns Potters Club Inc – Account Number: 119552826 -BSB: 633-108, forwarding a cheque to Cairns Potters Club Inc P.O. Box 1470 Cairns Qld 4870 or hand the money to a committee member. The potter will then be given a special number to always put on their pots or with the pots to be fired.
When that is done, then they can place their works on the shelves for pots to be fired and either put their allocated number on the bottom of their pots or place beneath the pots a paper with their number and if having used club glazes the amount in $ used .
The person in charge of the firing then let Lone White know how much they have charged the potters for the firing, and she will deduct it from their deposit and let them know how much the firing cost them. When the deposit is low, they will have to bring it back up to $20 or more by sending the amount to the Cairns Potters Club bank account.
