We currently have USAA. Does anyone have a name of an insurance
company that tolerates kilns?

State Farm in North Carolina.

My kiln is on concrete floor with a firewal and steel
fire"proof" door between the kilns and the living

Also, they wrote a policy for my business to cover my
studio, the contents and liability, assuming students
do not fire the kilns.

Reasonable rates too, about $25 a month. I recommend
insurance for anyone who teaches.
