How long do you hold my piece after I have painted it and I need to pick up.


We try to fire our pieces every week so that you can pick it up a week later. Sometimes there are circumstances that may delay when we get to fire the piece(s). Regardless, when we contact you by phone, text, or email, you have 30 days from that time to pick up your piece. After that the piece maybe discarded. Due to limited space, items that are past 30 days maybe discarded at that point. We do not offer a discount or money back in those circumstances.




Can things go wrong in the kiln?


Yes. When pottery/clay is heated to the tempertures to glaze the pottery, there are many things that could go wrong. One issue is pottery explosion. Simply put at a couple thousand degrees, if a piece of pottery has a defect, the heat can make the pottery/clay explode. As a result other pieces in the kiln can get damaged or destroyed. The piece that exploded would also be typically damaged beyond recognition. In the case of explosion we will try to fix affected pieces, usually this is scraping off the bits of the pottery that came in contact with the pieces. Usually the customer may not notice any difference. If the impact is large enough pieces can not be fixed. In that case we will work with the customer to find a instore solution.
