Do you accept orders placed outside of the US?
As of January 3, 2013, I'm now accepting orders from outside the US.
How do you price your shipping?
Shipping rates have been set up as follows:
For the US, I base the price on USPS Standard Post or First Class shipping for all pottery. I will fit the piece in whatever box size is required for safe packaging. For prints and stationery, I will ship either First Class or Priority.
For international pieces, the price is based on weight with 1 pound figured in for packaging. Items that weigh less than 4 pounds WITH packaging will be shipped First Class International. If there is an excess charge exceeding $1.50, I will issue a refund on Paypal upon shipment.
If you are making multiple purchases, and I'm able to combine products to save money, I'll refund you the difference if it exceeds $1.50.
If you are local and would prefer to pickup your purchase, please make note of that when you check out and I will refund you the shipping costs.
How long will it take to receive my order?
Once shipped most domestic orders take anywhere from 2 to 10 business days to arrive depending on the efficiency of your local postal service.
What is this store's return and exchange policy?
In the event that a piece is damaged upon shipping, please contact me so we can workout either a refund or an exchange. No other refunds are given.
Prints and Stationery:
So long as you return the item as is, I will refund you for your purchase. I do not pay for return shipping.
Tell me about your pottery.
I make functional wheel thrown ceramics including serving bowls and plates, lidded bowls for trinkets, pedestal bowls, and small posy bottles. All pieces are food, oven and dishwasher safe. My business, which is more of a hobby, rides with the ebb and flow of life as a parent of young kids, so when I am able to get to the wheel, it is done in love and excitement. My pottery reflects a draw towards understated beauty, simple lines and curves, and sturdy compositions that can withstand the chaos of life (or curious little hands).
I've been throwing for several years now and have a studio with a wheel and electric kiln set up in my garage. I try to accurately represent the colors and sizes, but know that it is common for there to be variations in color even across the surface of a single pot. This part of what makes handmade pottery beautiful!
Do you take special orders?
It's possible! I'm currently on about a one month firing cycle, and have a 7 cuft kiln. If there is something you'd like made but in another color, please understand that it can take some time, especially if the glaze has to be ordered. Let's talk!
