1. We expect your pieces to be constructed and glazed correctly. If your glaze runs onto the shelves you will be charged for shelf cleaning or a new kiln shelf. 

2. If your work blows up in the kiln and ruins other people’s work, you will be charged accordingly.

3. Any items not picked up within 30 days of the completion will be considered abandoned, becomes property of studio and may be discarded or donated.
