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. Garage Clay 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. 

Garage Clay has the right to refuse any work based on construction or glaze concerns.
