Glaze Firing in the Kiln
We are celebrating 1 year here in our studio in Long Island City, Queens. Prior to this space, we were in North Brooklyn for 18 years. Learn more about our eco-friendly tilemaking process in the steps below.

A portion of moist clay is placed on the slab roller.
The first time in the kiln is called the bisque firing.
