The firing fees associated with your pieces include the time of the studio staff to load pottery. Pottery may crack or break or explode in the firing process. This does not constitute a refund of firing fees. This happens and its not fair but it is what it is. We charge for bisque firing bases on size. Here is a description of firing fees.
It's the studios choice to fire an item we will not fire the item if:
- It is too thick
- It looks like it has trapped air
- We believe it is not structurally sound and will most likely crack in the kiln ( if we can predict this before it happens we will let you know so that you don't waste the money on firing it.
