Firing greenware, bisque with underglaze, and glazed ceramic pottery.


Drop off your pieces at SSSA Supply (13 S. Spring St. Elgin, IL) and we will fire for you! You may also arrange to load the kiln yourself.


We will have regularly scheduled firings but will do our best to help you meet your need.

"Thanks to Jane Erlandson, all my little pots survived my first glaze firing. Now I know things I did right and wrong, and what glazes I do and don't like. Next firing, mugs!"
