# FIRING COST CHART

## FIRING COST CHART (IN PESOS PER CUBIC CENTIMETRE)

The prices are valid until December 31st, 2017.

### TAKING MEASUREMENTS AND CALCULATING COST:

1.  Calculate your cubic centimetres (cm) by multiplying the 3 dimensions:

Length in cmXWidth in cmX Height in cm = total cubic centimetres

2.  Search the categories of sizes below  to find the price per cubic centimeter in relation to the size of your sculpture.  Then, multiply your total cubic centimetres by the cost per cubic centimeter per category.

### CATEGORY 1:  EXTRA SMALL (minimum charge is \$30 pesos per item)

\$.018 pesos per cubic centimeter

0cm X 0cm X 0cm - 20cm X 20cm X 20cm

0 cm3 to 8000cm3 (\$30 pesos is the minimum charge per item, up to \$144 pesos)

### CATEGORY 2:  SMALL

\$.013 pesos per cubic centimeter

21cm X 21cm X 21cm - 30cm X 30cm X 30cm

8001 cm3 to 27,000 cm3 (\$104 pesos up to \$351 pesos)

### CATEGORY 3:  MEDIUM

\$.011 pesos per cubic centimeter

31cm X 31cm X 31cm - 40cm X 40cm X 40cm

## IMPORTANT NOTES:

Surcharges:  Some pieces are much harder to load than others, or they occupy space in such a way that wastes a lot of kiln space.  There may be extra charges for particularly long, tall, wide, flat, heavy, or otherwise complicated pieces.  Thank you!

We reserve the right to refuse to fire an item based on what may appear to be an unacceptable risk of causing damage to our kiln, other customers' ware or that the item contains a product considered a health hazard.

Only items which are dry to the touch will be fired. Any greenware that we determine is not dry, will have to wait until the next firing.

We will treat your ceramic items as we would our own. Since the engobes and clear glaze can react differently to application, temperature, and LP gas , we cannot predict how an engobe or glaze will respond.  We cannot guarantee that you will get the results you anticipate.

Firing is a service that is provided on a first come, first serve basis and we are not able to predict the quantity of wares to be fired or if kiln problems may delay our schedule, therefore there is no guarantee as to when an item will be fired.

TAKING MEASUREMENTS OF LARGE-SCALE WORK IN MULTIPLE SECTIONS:

When you are measuring a large sculpture that was built in sections, measure each section separately (unless the sections will be fired together as one sculpture).  Add the cubic centimeteres of each of the sections, and then multiply the total by the peso cost (in the respective category) per cubic centimeter.
