Silica Dust Hazard Info

Know about Silica Dust

Working with clay comes with many risks.  Stay informed about the hazards of silica dust.  A thorough cleaning regimen is necessary when working with clay, not just for a clean presentation, but for your health.  Feet of Clay is cleaned regularly, floors mopped thoroughly, and sanding is never allowed.  All surfaces are cleaned twice per year.  Together with staff and our 100 members, we work hard to keep our environment safe.  As a studio member we expect everyone to never sand, wipe all surfaces with water, never trim dry and to keep the floor around them clean when working, so as not to stir up dust when stepping on dry clay.
