Some things I get asked...
Do you really make all this?
Yes. Every last fingerprint and wonky line is my own. My booth at shows may look like I have so much, I couldn't have possibly have made it all by myself. Keep in mind, the work you see is what I have spent months creating (one at a time) so I want to bring it ALL (hehe) I hope you'll come visit me at a show sometime to help me revel in my own chaos!
Do you do custom orders?
Custom orders take a lot of my time and concentration. At certain points in the year, when I feel I am sort of caught up, I will open custom orders. This will be listed on my Instagram feed somewhere. I am working on developing a custom orders section of my website to explain further.
As of now, you can send a message to ask about custom orders and I will get back to you as soon as I can :)
Why is this so expensive?
The price of the piece itself is based on the time it has taken me to make it and the materials I used. If you see a mug that is smaller, but pricier, it is likely because it took a very long time to make or it is made with gold or materials that add to the price and uniqueness of the piece. I feel my work is priced reasonably considering everything that went into making it.
Do you ever offer discounts or coupons?
Yes! When I feel it's time to discount older stock or just give customers a nice treat, I will send out marketing emails or post sales on my Instagram page. If you are a member on my website, you will receive those emails first!
Why is my piece taking so long to ship?
I am one person doing about 8 different jobs. I try to ship orders quickly, but sometimes life has other plans. Please be patient! If I take longer than normal to ship your order, I typically send a nice little surprise as an apology :)
did you know....
I don't make "test tiles" because my time is so limited. My testers are on actual pieces because, hey, if they turn out great, then cool. If I feel they are not exactly as I envisioned them, I will sell them as test pieces on my website. If they are flawed, the listing will mention the flaw. If they aren't flawed (just a test piece I might not make again) the listing will also mention that. These pieces are fully functional -as something- and just might be an idea I was messing around with one day in my studio that turned out okay :) Grab those while you can!
did you ALSO know....
Every single order is packed and shipped by me. I use whatever materials I can to get your pottery to you safely and securely. This is typically bubble wrap, paper, packing peanuts, and whatever else I can find. I want your piece to arrive unbroken and this usually means using some form of plastic. If you would prefer I do not use plastic, please send a message and I will try to accommodate that request. I respect your decision to help our planet, it's just that pottery is HEAVY!
did you ALSO ALSO know....
Every single order comes with a small token of my appreciation. It can be a charm, a magnet, or even a small test piece! Sometimes, I'll thrown in something super extra like small a one off mug or jewelry or a wacky little test item to clear stock! When you order from me, you never know what surprise you'll get. I love giving away things to give you that extra bit of joy :)
