Hi, Welcome to my shop on Etsy. Thank you for your interest in my pottery and I hope you will visit again. If there is something you would like to know about the pots please don't hesitate to contact me. I haven't lost my love of clay even though I've been up to my eyeballs in it for around 40 years. Still lot's to try and even more to learn. Please browse and get in touch if you like something I am offering.
Cheers, Elizabeth.

PLEASE REQUEST A QUOTE FOR SHIPPING.

WESTERN AUSTRALIA
The shipping cost is an estimate and if you have overpaid I will refund the amount overcharged. I use Australia Post and I am able to ship within a couple of days if the article is ordered from listed stock.

PACKAGING. I have found it necessary to have customized boxes made. The boxes I use are strong and suitable for safe delivery. As a result of this there is a small fee added for packaging included within the shipping quote. I use the Australia Post Satchel system, which is the most economical and safest. During my time with Etsy (4 years) I have only ever had two breakages as I take care to pack securely. However if it's felt necessary to insure a parcel buyers can contact me and I will mail the package including insurance. I haven't found this necessary to date and there is an extra charge for this service from Australia Post. Please contact me to receive a quote.

AUSTRALIA
All I need to know is the postcode and the article being considered. It is a simple matter to quote an accurate cost.

OVERSEAS
It is necessary to request a quote for overseas destinations as the costs stated are only an estimate based on average weights of the pot/s listed. Prices given are airmail and a little more expensive than by sea, possibly over-stated.
Orders usually require 4 - 6 weeks depending on my workload and the throwing or firing cycle I am involved in when the order is placed. Orders are only accepted if they fall into the style of my usual work and only also with the glazes I currently use. I take utmost care to ship pots both economically and safely.
Additional policies and FAQs
Where a pot is a 'stock' item it means the colour and shape is reproduced and there is very little difference from one batch to the next. If a listing is marked as a 'stock' item it only means I am making repeats of that item. The pot photographed is the piece you will receive when purchasing - so what is visible is what is delivered. Not all pots offered for sale are stock items because I am always experimenting and quite a lot of the work is "one off" and not necessarily going to be repeated. I am always trying new glazes.
ORDERS
If I accept an order it is conditional on an understanding with the buyer that It's impossible to replicate the exact same results each time. Mostly I manage to succeed in a good likeness. If it's doubtful that I can achieve very similar results as the piece pictured on my site, I won't accept the order or I will explain the possible difficulty in achieving the same results because I haven't done a lot of testing of the glaze combination. Glaze combinations which I know are easily repeatable become 'stock' items or part of a 'range.'
CARE OF STONEWARE.
On completion of a firing and when unpacking the kiln I quality test each piece to be sure there are no flaws so that when offered for sale the article is free from defects.
The main consideration when using stoneware is to take care regarding thermal shock. Pottery does not react well to being placed on direct heat (stove top) or taken from the refrigerator and placed in a preheated oven. Always when cooking with stoneware place the pot into the oven while the oven is still at a low heat and the dish at room temperature. Also avoid placing a very hot piece into cold water. Heating and cooling clay is a gradual process when firing pottery and remains so even when the process is complete and the pot in use. Given reasonable care stoneware will give long life and satisfaction in use. I use a very good quality clay and if this simple rule is observed it's really durable. Take care when packing in the dishwasher as with any other breakable article.
My pots are all microwave, dishwasher and oven friendly and the glazes I use are food safe.
Occasionally I make crystalline glazed ware and these pieces are intended more for serving dishes and decorative purposes, i.e. fruit bowls, vases, jars and so on. I don't recommend crystalline glazed ware for cooking. This style of glaze is beautiful when It works and tends to be easier scratched than the more durable stoneware glazes on all other pieces I produce.
I endeavor to match (sets) and usually manage this fairly well, however, because of the handmade aspect as with any craft, there will be slight variation which is what it's all about really and is to be celebrated as part of its charm!
