If I want to rent a kiln, do I contact Bullseye Glass?

As each kiln varies in features and size, you’ll want to reach out to the owner of the kiln you are interested in to discuss your project.
Kiln Host FAQ
Can anyone list a kiln for rental?
People listing a kiln must be at least 18 years old, legally own the kiln, and use their kilns for firing Bullseye Glass.
How do I list my kiln?
The first step is to sign up as a user on the site if you haven’t already. Second, create your host studio listing by filling out the form. Third, head over to our List a Kiln page and fill out all the details requested there. One of our team members will review your submissions and once approved, your kiln will be listed as available!
Can you help me with pricing kiln rentals and studio guidelines?
Our best advice is to look at other studios in your region, consider the services and pricing they offer, and decide if your pricing should be or needs to be higher or lower. There can be good reasons to set pricing at different levels, but in general, if you are getting started as a kiln host, you probably don’t want to come in higher than other studios in your region. For an example of studio policies and pricing in Portland Oregon, see Bullseye Glass Resource Center’s Open Studio Guide for customers: https://www.bullseyeglass.com/wp-content/uploads/open_studio_RCPDX.pdf
Are there any limits to how much or little I can charge to rent my kiln?
Not at all! The kiln belongs to you, so you get to decide how much, or little, you want to charge others to use it.
What is glass fusing?
Fusing is the joining together of separate glasses through the application of heat within a kiln. Many people use the terms “fusing” and “kilnforming” interchangeably. Bullseye Glass offers a wealth of educational options to learn more.
Can I contact Bullseye Glass if I have questions?
If you have general questions about KilnSpace or Bullseye Glass, by all means, contact us. If you have questions about a specific kiln, use the CONTACT button on the kiln’s page to reach out to the owner.
