I agree that General Pottery will do everything it can to ensure your work is fired properly, however the successful firing of your work is largely dependent upon:

  • The provision of correct information regarding the clay and glaze on this form. Incorrect information can result in over or under-firing of work.If your work over-fires and melts you will be charged for damage to the kiln and shelves, as well as the firing costs of any damaged work belonging to others.

  • Correct construction of items.

    • General Pottery is not responsible for work that explodes in the kiln as a result of air-bubbles.If your work explodes and damages other work you will be charged the firing cost of those items.

    • General Pottery is not responsible for cracks or splits that appear as a result of firing

  • Good glazing technique.General Pottery is not responsible for poor glaze results that are the result of poor glaze technique including

    • Poor mixing of glaze or under application of glaze to items

    • Over application of glaze and glaze run.If your glaze runs and damages the kiln and/or other work you will be charged.

Successful glazing is dependent on glaze testing!
