The Genesee Pottery in Rochester, New York is a nonprofit ceramic studio housed in an 1895 firehouse. Where the fire horses used to be stabled is our kiln room, which houses our 40 year-old workhorse of a gas kiln.

In the past years we have brought many of our practices up to newer, safer standards and we need to do the same for our firing procedures. The gas kiln is and has always been an integral part of our firing process. We are the only ceramic studio in the region to offer this service to the community.

As we celebrate our past 40 years with our retrospective show “Ten-Nineteen” we would like to replace the old workhorse with an ecologically sound, high efficiency kiln, to prepare ourselves for the next generations of Genesee potters.
