Glass Kiln Rentals

VisArts is happy to provide glass kiln rentals to individuals. A kiln rental includes an entire kiln firing for up to 48 hours. Kiln rentals are available for fusing and slumping processes; we can’t accommodate casting at this time.

Kiln rentals are for the entire kiln area; we don’t combine rentals into one kiln. Individuals can rent a kiln, or groups can choose to rent a kiln together. We ask that only one individual organizes the rental for the group and completes payment.

All kiln rentals include use of shelving, furniture, molds and kiln wash. Renters must provide their own kiln paper that is approved by the studio or purchase the day of firing. Molds and shelves can be checked out and used free of charge.

Firings will be scheduled by VisArts staff around the needs of onsite classes; it could take up to 2 weeks to schedule your firing appointment.  This appointment will include a 15-minute consultation onsite in our studio with a studio assistant to ensure we understand your firing needs and set the appropriate kiln program. You will bring your pieces to be fired to this appointment and will assist in laying the works out in the kiln to be fired.
