Kilns in Toronto?

Where in Toronto can I harness the power of a kiln to slump a bottle?

So my best friend in the whole world is skipping town at the end of the summer to do a post-graduate degree. I have a few things in mind for her going-away care package, but the pièce de résistance is this: I still have the empty tequila bottle that we split on the dark winter night that cemented our friendship (long, crazy story). I heard about bottle slumping
and thought "Hey! This is the perfect thing." She's the best cook I know, and a slumped cutting board made out of That Bottle Of Shitty Tequila would be the perfect thing to send her away with.
The problem: I do not have a kiln. I do not know where kilns are found. I probably would not know a kiln to see one. Is there anywhere in Toronto (or near Toronto, even. Anywhere I could bike to in a day) that would either allow use of their kiln or say "Silly child, this is a grownup toy. Let me melt your swill bottle for a fair price"?
Alternatively, if anybody has a better idea of how to turn an empty 40 into a cool piece of art, I am all ears.
