ELECTRIC KILNS FOR BISQUE-FIRING AND LOW- and MID-RANGE GLAZE FIRING
PIECES READY FOR GLAZING
ELECTRIC WHEELS FOR MEMBERS AND STUDENTS
STUDIO ACCESS: Studio members have access to the main studio at 520 S. G Street AND our new Studio #10 at 550 S. G Street, #10, from 6 a.m. to 12 midnight, seven days a week. However, students and their instructors have priority on both space and equipment when classes are in session. Other than when enrolled and participating in scheduled instruction, any student or guest under the age of 18 must be adequately supervised by a responsible adult. Please do not bring dogs to either studio for their safety and the safety of our students and members.
USE OF EQUIPMENT: All equipment, including glass cutter, glass lab, glass kilns, potters' wheels, slab rollers, extruders, bisque kilns, raku kilns, gas kilns, is available for studio members' use after the studio member has been cleared or trained to use it. All equipment will be kept in good working order to the extent that funds are available and approved by the Board. Kilns are fired only by staff or by studio members who have been authorized to do so by the staff. Kiln space is limited. Additional fees apply whenever a member exceeds allotted kiln space.
STORAGE SPACE: Members may store clay, tools, and work in progress in the Studio. The space allotted to each paid studio member will be determined by the amount of available space and the particular needs of that member.
FOSTERING DEVELOPMENT: The Fire Arts Center is dedicated to supporting the development of craftspeople and artists. However, because of the Center's limited shared capacity, we may be unable to accommodate the production of an extensive line of work. Members who exceed their allotted kiln space will be required to pay additional firing fees. (See Rate Sheet.)
GALLERY EXHIBITS: Studio gallery exhibits allow studio members to display and sell their work with minimal effort and with a commission to FAC lower than that of most private galleries.
ANNUAL SALES: We hold sales in the Spring and during the holiday season to allow studio members even greater opportunities to exhibit their work and receive a commission for any work sold. We encourage all members to volunteer at the sales.
DISCOUNTED CLASSES: Studio members in good standing receive discounts on all Fire Arts classes, once minimum enrollment for the particular class is met.
COLLEGIAL ATMOSPHERE: The Fire Arts Center offers a vital artistic program and a non-competitive working environment. Studio members are expected to share their knowledge and skills with fellow members and help foster the collegial atmosphere that has become the heart of FAC's success.
