    I know someone who has their own ceramics studio (glazes, stains, kiln, etc.) who might be more interested in getting unglazed ceramics. That way she could style the designs using her own glazes, or use stains instead of glazes.

    Is it possible to get fired, unglazed pieces?

    I'm also interested in this question, as well as whether Shapeways would offer other glaze options (colors would dramatically enhance the appeal of the ceramics, particular for larger surface area objects that are expensive for which decoration could increase customer perceived value dramatically).

    I would also like to know as I am super-interested in ordering ceramic models un-glazed. Anyone know stuff?

    I've been in contact with Shapeways, and the latest reponse was:

    So it seems like this isn't something they can handle at the moment.
