How it's made:
All of my ceramics are made by me in my studio using a potter's wheel or handbuilt using clay slabs or coils. I work with either stoneware or porcelain clays that take a mid-range firing and makes for durable, chip-resistant pottery appropriate for every day use
My pottery surfaces are achieved with colored underglazes that I paint on. I will often mix colors to achieve different tones and colors. I like to carve into my surfaces and inlay colors to make the designs pop. I also like to highlight pieces with hashmarks, dots and scratching, which gives more visual and surface texture. All pieces are then finished with a clear, shiny glaze.
Caring for your pottery:
Handwash is preferable, or the gentle cycle on your dishwasher using planet-friendly detergents.
Avoid moving items between extreme temperatures quickly, as this could cause thermal shock and result in cracking and/or breakage. Allow your pottery to heat or cool slowly. Microwave is okay.
Staining sometimes occurs if food, particularly acidic food like tomatoes or berries, sits too long in your pottery. It’s best to remember that your pieces are best for serving, not storing.
Shipping + returns:
Items will typically ship within 2 business days. You’ll receive an email notification when your pottery leaves my studio, which includes your tracking number.
I combine shipping on multi-orders and refund shipping overages.
If you need to make a return, please notify me via email within 3 days of receipt, along with your reason for returning.
