Terms & Conditions

Rules of our website


Kiln Share is a simple directory website that connects potters looking to hire a kiln to fire their work with local kiln owners. This means that responsibility and liability is held solely between the potter and the kiln owner and it is their duty together to work out an arrangement that is suitable for both parties. Read more about our disclaimer policy.

Terms when looking for a kiln

Visitors who are looking to find a kiln to hire can use our website free of charge to search our map and get in touch with a local kiln owner. When you contact a kiln owner through the contact form found on their listing page, your data is shared both with the individual who owns the kiln and Kiln Share for administrative reasons. It is up to the kiln owner to decide if they get back in touch with you - they also set their own prices and firing rules.

Terms when listing your kiln

Kiln owners who subscribe to our directory get a 3 month (90 days) free trial. After this free trial period expires, you will be charged a rolling GBP £2 per month. We use Stripe to set up subscriptions and accept payments - although we can accept payments in any currency type, your bank may charge you a conversion fee when you pay Kiln Share in GBP. You can cancel your subscription at any time - we require if 30 days' notice if your subscription is active. You can cancel any time within your free trial period. Cancelling your subscription any time will delete your map marker and kiln listing page from our website.

The data you submit through our sign up form is displayed publicly on your kiln listing page - this includes your name, kiln details and postcode/ZIP location. This data is stored by Kiln Share for admin, legal and security purposes and at any time can be requested by you to be changed or deleted. After completing our sign up form, an email confirmation will be sent to you that details your subscription ID number and a copy of the data you submitted to us. When you join Kiln Share, we do not create an account for you on our website.

When someone contacts you via the contact form found on your kiln's listing page, it's your choice to engage in a conversation. You are 100% in control of your pricing and firing rules and you decide when to disclose your full address to the potter. You do not have to fire a potter's work just be they contacted you. YOUR KILN = YOUR RULES, YOUR PRICING.

These terms can be updated at any time - last updated 4th May 2021.
