are your clay gnomes only guaranteed for 90 days instead of forever?"
guarantee our clay gnomes for only 90 days because it has been our experience
that people expect us to replace a gnome that they have run over with their car,
or their kids have used as target practice, etc.. We use extremely frost
resistant stoneware pottery which is made to be placed outside all year round.
But it is pottery and therefore pottery gets broken in a variety of ways. We are
restricting our guarantee so that in 50 years we are not liable for a gnome that
was run over with the lawnmower! Our gnomes are extremely hardy but like
anything else, they are not bomb-proof but as close as we can come given the
medium (clay) in which we work.
ALL Resin, Terracotta, or Mushroom Spikes Products:
resin products are sold without any warranty expressed or implied. We cannot and
will not guarantee these products against damage from the elements or from
anything else, and the LOW purchase prices reflect this. If you require a
warranty with your purchase then you will need to purchase from our line of other
CLAY Gnomes and products. Thank you.
FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS ONLY APPLICABLE TO PAINTED CLAY PRODUCTS PRODUCED PRIOR
TO AUGUST 2004 AND DOES NOT APPLY TO ANY CURRENT (GLAZED) CLAY
painted finishes have been discontinued as of August 2004. Maintain your painted
clay gnome with a coat of varnish each year or replace with a glazed, no
finishes effective August 2004: We color our clay gnomes with a matt glaze and
only use acrylic paint for small details on some gnomes. The glaze finish
ensures true color and zero maintenance for the life of the gnome.
