I offer a wide range of ceramic-centric services to help you keep your studio, classroom, or personal practice operating at the highest standards. After working in clay for over 15 years, I have the experience to not only help you keep your equipment running smoothly, but also provide other studio support for technical issues that you may have regarding firing, clay bodies, and glazes and more.



Kiln Repair

A healthy kiln is essential to a productive, high functioning studio. I have been working around all types of kilns everyday for the last 15 years. I love fixing them and believe in preventive care.

I work on every part of kilns, including replacing switches and relays, updating faulty or old wiring, installing elements, brick work and more. Whether you just need a quick fix or a full rebuild I can help.

Not sure whats wrong? If your within two hours of my studio in Eastern PA, I can provide a full on-site inspection and diagnostic. You will receive a written recommendation of the work that is needed.
