Since the purpose of this class is to give students the experience, our expectation is that all pieces created during class will be deconstructed at end of evening and clay recycled.  If you are particularly pleased with your piece and instructor feels its structurally sound, and likely to fire successfully you may opt to have your item fired  for an additional fee  then return for a 2nd class, at a later date to glaze ( paint) your art work. 

This process takes a few weeks.
