Our Services

Pottery Classes

Classes are offered on a week-to-week basis from 10 a.m-1 p.m., 1:30-4:30 p.m., or 5 – 8 p.m. on Tuesdays, with no long-term commitment required on your part.  We do recommend at least a 6 week commitment to help you become familiar with the wheel and with the processes of the ceramic arts.

One-on-One Instruction

One-on-one instruction is tailored to your specific skills and goals.  Contact us directly and let us help you design the perfect program for your needs.

Kiln Building

Jared began the process of building a modified Japanese style manabigama dual chamber wood kiln in the spring of 2010.  This process has truly been a labor of love and will soon mark a turning point for Lifefire Pottery.  The kiln has been part of Jared’s dream since his early days of pottery making.


Corporate Clients find that working with Lifefire Pottery is a great way to build a collection of locally sourced, hand made gift or promotional items.  Set yourself apart from your competition and give your clients, customers, and staff a piece that they will use for a lifetime.
