If your child created a piece in ceramic clay or has chosen to take clay home to make a ceramic piece, you can take finished pieces to get fired into a permanent piece of pottery at KV Ceramics on the heights in Hood River for a small charge of about a dollar. They can also teach your child how to glaze their piece.
Below is their contact info:
KV Ceramics Studio
1082 Tucker Rd Hood River, OR 97031
A few tips if your child chooses to work on their piece at home:
*Ceramic clay is water based and will get messy. Be sure to put a plastic garbage bag or other protection down on whatever surface your child will be using.
*Ceramic clay dries to a fine powder that is toxic to breathe when dry. Be sure to wash all surfaces that have touched clay with soap and water to eliminate any possibility of generating clay dust in the air.
*Keep your child’s ceramic piece sealed in its zippy bag till you can get it fired. If left out, the piece will dry out and become very fragile.
Hope your child enjoyed working in clay! I certainly enjoyed working with your amazing children!
