RISKS AND DAMAGES

  • Clay works can be very fragile and we do our best to handle everything with care but we are not responsible for items being broken or glaze defects.

  • Clients accept the risks to clay works associated with community firing. We are not responsible for damage to works that occurs as a result of another’s mishap.

  • Clients will be responsible for the cost of any damages to the kiln, shelves, or posts caused by client errors such as incorrect glazing, enclosed forms with no steam hole, mistaken clay body or wrong glaze temperature.

 

EXPECTATIONS AND TURNAROUND TIME

  • Fired pottery and clay works are a bit unpredictable by nature. Reasonable variances can happen during firing, especially with glazing.

  • We expect work to be fired and ready in 1 week, however we fire when the kiln is at least 2/3 full.

  • We recommend clients pay for an entire kiln if a project is time sensitive.
