Testing Policy

Testing of raw materials should be an integral part of ceramic manufacturing. Upon receipt of any new material, we strongly recommend that you test the material. SHEFFIELD POTTERY, INC. has no control over either the variations that may occur in the natural materials or their application. Therefore, our products are sold with the understanding that the user is solely responsible for determining suitability for any purpose and the results obtained. There are no warranties expressed or implied, regarding the user’s finished product or results.


Disclaimer

Our clays are guaranteed to be delivered to you at their intended formula and water content within the range of accuracy of our equipment.
Note that:
-The materials used to produce your clay are mined by companies that do not necessarily recommend their products to be used by potters and they do not guarantee the purity of them. Therefore we can not be responsible for any variations or contaminants that are beyond our control. Using our Dry Materials refining system will greatly improve the dependability of these clays for a minimal extra cost.
-Since there are so many variables on the user end, you must test the clay to be sure that it works for your application given your own techniques and environment. We can only guarantee that the clay body is what you ordered, but we cannot guaranty that it will work for your needs. Sheffield Pottery is never responsible for any failed final product.
