  1. We have recently started a group studio and it was easy to split costs when 2-3 main people shared the kiln space evenly. We split the propane costs for the kiln, and the electric kiln for bisque shows the amount of electricity used. Supplies and maintenance costs are split too. But we are trying to figure out a formula for the future when more people get involved and there are different quantities of work being produced. The core members of the group order the materials, mix all the glazes, grind all the shelves, load and unload the kiln, keep the studio clean, etc. If a person wants to fire some pieces in the kiln, we are not sure what to charge ON TOP of the propane price. I see that some studios charge $0.09 per cu in, but I don't know how that is broken down. But what I would like to know is there a percentage formula anyone has worked out, that factors in all the materials, labor and wear and tear of the kiln? Would 20% on top of gas cost be a fair estimate? So ultimately, we would like the core members to pay for all the costs and split accordingly, and then excess monies paid for by the contributing guests would go into a "fund" that will be used for purchasing new materials or supplies. Would appreciate your feedback on this!
