The Clay Cottage and Art Studio does its best to prevent damage to your work; however, there is the potential that any piece fired in the kiln could incur damage beyond our control. By allowing your pottery to be fired at the Clay Cottage and Art Studio, you acknowledge this risk and will not hold the studio liable for any damage to your work. Thanks for understanding!
