Hi! My name is Felicia, and I am the potter and sculptor behind MaidofClay. I create hand sculpted creatures with extra personality and wheel thrown pottery in stoneware and porcelain. You can view samples of my work at maidofclay.com (you'll have to type this in your browser as Etsy only has direct links within Etsy). I do everything from the idea, the execution of the idea, the photography, the listing, the packing and the shipping until it arrives safely in your hands.

I love all art mediums…

I love all art mediums, but for the last 11 years I've been consumed by the art and craft of clay. I have three cats (Willoughby, Buster & Emmett) that I pamper overmuch, and I'm addicted to flea markets - I love finding treasures. I'm happily married and my husband loves cats and flea marketing just as much as I do.

I succumbed to what I’ve termed the “Call of the Wheel” in the Spring of 2000 when I discovered the frustrating, yet strangely meditative joy of throwing a pot. Throwing clay soon took a backseat to sculpting clay when I began shaping small forms to add to my thrown pieces. I work with high fire stoneware clay and porcelain and construct my sculptural pieces through a combination of hand building techniques. I am equally happy making both whimsical, silly pieces and more sophisticated art pottery.

I don’t know how many people are interested in the technical aspects of clay, but, just in case…I bisque my greenware at cone 05 (almost 1900 degrees) and I do both mid-range oxidation firing (cone 6 – 2232 degrees)in an electric kiln and high fire gas reduction firing (cone 10 – 2380 degrees) for my glazed pieces. All the glazes I use for functional ware are commercial glazes manufactured by Laguna Clay Company and verified foodsafe.

Thank you so much for taking time to visit my store and I hope you find something you like. I have a very sad, neglected vintage Etsy shop called EyeFind.etsy.com One day I'll fill it up with all the great finds I get at the flea markets.

Here’s the fine print, which I won’t make any smaller because that’s just annoying.
****************************
PAYMENT
I accept Paypal and postal money orders.

SHIPPING
I will be shipping to your verified Paypal address. Otherwise, please notify me immediately after your purchase with the correct address. I try to ship Paypal purchases within 3 business days of purchase (excluding custom made pieces)

International purchases (outside of the US) may be subject to any custom duties, tariffs, or import taxes levied by their countries Customs at the time of delivery and are the responsibility of the buyer.

I ship USPS Flat Rate Priority or regular Priority for smaller boxes. Larger boxes or multiple orders are less expensive to ship via UPS. I'm happy to ship to most international locales. Pottery can be hard to judge as far as shipping costs so just convo me so I can figure out shipping and add your location to the listing.

Insurance is optional and up to the buyer's discretion. I pack very carefully and want you to receive your purchase intact. I double box when necessary to ensure the safe arrival of a ceramic item. I've sent out over 2,000 packages and have never had any breakage. I pack a piece until I can hardly feel the pottery when I squeeze the bubblewrapped piece. I overpack with peanuts until it is difficult to tape the box shut. This is not done to annoy the buyer with an explosion of peanuts at its opening :-D It is done so there will be no likelihood of the piece shifting during shipping.

GIFTS
If you are sending a gift, please let me know if you would like me to include a personalized note. Please contact me indicating the correct address for shipping to gift recipient.

RETURNS & REFUNDS:
I'm happy to refund any item in its original condition if you are unhappy with it within a week or so of you receiving it. Please be advised I do not refund shipping costs, and you will be responsible for return shipping.

CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS: After purchasing, simply proceed to checkout using the Paypal link at the bottom of the item page to complete your payment (Paypal processes card payments safely & confidentially. You don't need a Paypal account to pay).
