 Additional Information:

YOU MUST USE CLAY PURCHASED FROM OR APPROVED BY BOOKWORM POTTERY & CO. There are no exceptions to this rule, as I cannot risk other students’ work or my kiln being destroyed from improper clay bodies. We fire to cone 5/6. I’m happy to look over your clay and glazes to make sure they’ll work! Use of improper clay or glazes will result in a $500 fine for damages.

This ticket is for one month’s rental. If you need more than 20 hours per month, you may purchase additional hours at $5/hr or purchase additional Independent Studio tickets. Unused studio hours are NOT prorated, so the base listing price ($70) is non-negotiable even if you do not use all your hours, to help cover community material fees.

Please make sure your pieces are signed with your name. Not all pieces are guaranteed to make it out of the kiln. Inconsistencies in thickness can cause cracks or even shattering in the firing process. Improper glazing can cause pieces to stick the the shelf and may have to be broken off. There are many reasons why your piece might not survive that are out of our control. By purchasing this rental option, you are acknowledging and agreeing that Bookworm Pottery & Co. is not liable for lost pieces.

Tickets are not prorated or refundable, and they do not include classes or instruction. You can absolutely ask me quick questions if you’re stumped, but I cannot sit next to you and teach during this time, as I will be working on other projects. All fired pieces and personal materials must be removed at the end of the month upon non-renewal.
