Selling Pots (even just one) and Firing Pottery for others requires commercial insurance
Despite talking to my broker when I spent 4 years building my studio it appears there was a misunderstanding between my broker and I for the last ten years on my well built, well insulated, and electrically heated "outbuilding" Alpine Clayworks was actually only insured for "storage" use.
While I thought I was covered by insurance I learned on January 24, 2023 that there and that since I sold pots at many Guild sales and provided a firing service for many potters during COVID I actually required a "commercial" insurance policy.
Alpine Clayworks is closed and all "business" activities have been suspended. At this moment, while repairs have been underway, the "outbuilding" or "detached building" known as Alpine Clayworks can only be used for storage.
