Does annealed glass bring liability?

Postby Aaron Solt » Sun Feb 17, 2019 2:37 pm

Many cups are now tempered. If I sell art that is annealed and not tempered, and a customer breaks it, am I at high liability for differing from the norm, which is using tempered glass on most other objects? What can we do to minimize our losses, and also not give some types of people ideas?

I don't think many drinking glasses are tempered. Shower doors, car windshields, glass tabletops, diving masks, etc. -- there are items that are normally tempered. Some manufacturers do make tempered glass (Pyrex, Corelle), but it is not typical.

You'll have the same liability as the rest of us working in glass -- or any artist. Anyone who sells anything to the public is wise to at least carry a personal umbrella policy. Note that I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV :mrgreen: .
