Efficiently manage members and billing with Kiln Fire pottery studio management software.


We had a lot on our plate starting our pottery studio, but the Kiln Fire app has made it incredibly smooth to deal with the typical admin tasks like collecting firing fees, signing up users for memberships, and selling our classes.

What we love most is that our members enjoy using it too! The convenience of adding their pieces for firing fees online has been a game-changer for everyone, and they like adding glaze notes into the app for their own reference. The screen that shows the status of each kiln firing saves us from getting asked the same question over and over again.

Kiln Fire has brought a sense of organization and efficiency to our studio for our members and students. It's made our lives as studio owners so much easier. We can't recommend it enough!"

Build a Custom Plan For Your Ceramics Studio

Every studio does things differently, we get that. Customize your plan to only use the core features you plan on using.

Users includes subscribed members as well as any other users who would log in to use the app for firing fees and other purposes. Generally people taking classes do not need to be considered users. You can make users inactive if they no longer need to log in and they would no longer count for your plan's user total.
These prices do not include credit card processing fees. We use Stripe to process credit cards and you will start and connect your own Stripe account with our app. In the US they typically charge 2.9% + 30 cents per transaction.

No, we aren't. And there is an important reason why: this app does billing and collects money for you. If it were in mobile app stores like Apple's iOS App store or Google's Play store, it would be force to collect all money through the app store and surrender up to 30% cut to Apple or Google. We didn't think you would want to lose 30% of your profit.

We use Stripe, one of the leading providers of credit card payments online. You will sign up for your own Stripe account that you own and can log into. Use use Stripe Connect, a program that lets us charge credit cards through Stripe and have it go directly into your account there. The beauty of how Stripe works is that it is totally secure. We can never know a full credit card number on our website, as all credit card information goes directly to Stripe's servers, without touching ours. We can then help you charge those stored credit cards on Stripe servers with an access key, which can be revoked at any time.
Yes, our tool is 100% tied into Stripe's functionality and we cannot use any other billing providers.

The app will always consist of Users and Receipts, those are the base features that all other functionality extends from.
