Q: How long does a piece of pottery take to complete?

A: If you paint an already finished piece, you may retreive your item with in 24 to 48 hours. If you sculpt your own piece, it will take between 1-3 days to dry, then it takes 1-2 days to fire it in the kiln, you can return to glaze your piece at this point. It is then fired in the kiln for a second time (which also takes 1-2 days), so you may pick up the finished product after about 7-10 business days from your start date.
