***PLEASE CLEAN BOTTOMS BEFORE BRINGING GLAZE WORK IN TO FIRE. IF YOUR PIECE(S) STICKS TO THE KILN SHELF YOU WILL BE CHARGED ANYWHERE FROM $25-$150 DEPENDING ON THE DAMAGE TO OUR KILN SHELF ****
The Clay Warehouse is not responsible for pieces damaged due to the reasons noted in this disclaimer. Any damage to kilns or shelves caused by defects in the customer's work is the responsibility of the owner of the piece. The owner of the piece will cover all costs involved in repairing the kiln or replacing shelves.
It is your responsibility to ensure all pieces are ready for firing to reduce the chances of the piece exploding in the kiln. Pieces must be completely dry and ready for firing. Your pieces will be fired alongside other customers' pieces, and you accept the risk of theirs possibly damaging yours. Please do not glaze the bottom of the pieces unless absolutely necessary! Please remove any interior paper/Styrofoam or other material before bringing items to fire. We will not fire anything non-clay.
Please ensure you understand what cone your clay/glaze needs to be fired too. If your clay/glaze melts onto our shelf a fee will be applied. Clay and Glazes must be mid-fire (Cone 5-6)
Common Issues: Firing defects are usually caused by poor construction of the piece, dampness, air bubbles, over or under-glazing, etc. Please be aware that there are times when pieces may explode or crack, glazes may chip, shiver, crawl, or run in the firing. At The Clay Warehouse, experienced potters and technicians perform firings in tested quality kilns.
Agreement: Upon dropping pieces to be fired, you agree to the terms above, have read and understand the disclaimer, and do not hold The Clay Warehouse nor its employees responsible for the loss of any pieces fired on the premises. All information stated is accurate and correct.
Item pick up is during regular business hours. If items are not pick up within 14 days (starting from end of classes/drop off date) they may be disposed of. We only have limited space in our studio, so please ensure you pick up your fired pieces in a timely fashion.
