Assumption of Risk
Carlyn Ray Designs, LLC, doing business as Dallas Glass Art (the “Company”), is a Texas limited liability company that operates a glassblowing, flameworking, painting, and glass fusing studio at 1820 Irving Blvd., Dallas, TX, 75207. The premises contain a furnace, torches, and kiln work areas (all of the areas of the building where the equipment is contained and glass crafting work of any kind is conducted will be referred to as the “Studio”). The accepting participant and, where the participant is under the age of 18, the accepting parent or guardian of the participant on behalf of the participant, for himself or herself:
1. Acknowledges that glassblowing and fusing involves certain inherent risks, dangers, and hazards, which can result in personal injury, illness, death, property damage, and other losses;
2. Freely agrees to assume and accept any and all such risks of personal injury, death, property damage, and loss associated with the Company, including risks arising from my conduct (either as a participant or spectator), the design of the features in the Studio, the conduct of the Company and its members, directors, officers, shareholders, trustees, beneficiaries, employees, agents, representatives, independent contractors, sponsors, successors, and assigns, and the conduct of other participants; and,
3. Acknowledges that the description of risks contained in this Agreement is not complete and that other unknown or unanticipated risks may result in personal injury, illness, death, property damage, or other losses and agree to assume and accept any and all risks, known or unknown, regardless of whether they are stated in this Agreement.
Glassblowing is not recommended for expecting mothers in the third trimester or for others who have particular sensitivities to heat. I acknowledge that I (and my child, if applicable) am not an expecting mother in my third trimester and do not have particular sensitivities to heat.
All participants or observers in the Studio MUST be over the age of six (6). Glassblowing for kids (minimum of age 6) experiences are limited in participation to only the blowing and expanding of the glass. When working with kids, there will be absolutely no handling of the pipe due to safety conditions.
