Before we are able to fire your pieces, please read through the following kiln rental agreement carefully. By purchasing, you agree to the following.
The “Sh!t Happens” Statement of Liability:
We will treat your pieces with the care we use when handling our own pottery; however, there is always a chance a piece will break, crack, or explode during the firing process. Fifth Street Studio assumes no responsibility for any of the above-mentioned firing or building issues that may occur, and you are still responsible for payment in full for firing services.
Fifth Street Studio has the right to refuse any work based on construction or glaze concerns.
Fifth Street Studio User Agreement + Responsibilities (please read thoroughly)
When firing in the Fifth Street Studio kiln, you agree to the following:
