Annonce   Hello friends of Beardbangs! Thanks for visiting the shop! My name is Alicia and I started this company with my husband, Josiah, in 2014. I'm now located in a little home studio in East York (Toronto), Ontario, and am currently working as a one woman show while I build back up my business after a year of maternity leave. I've now got a lovely, goofy daughter who reminds me to smile every day! I hope these pieces will share our joy with you and make you smile too.

Made to order items will take about four weeks to create. I always try to get them out sooner, but I can't guarantee right now.

I offer free shipping for Canadian and US orders, and am working hard to offer the lowest shipping rates I can for international shipments.

Check out my website at www.beardbangs.ca to see more of my work and learn about the company!

A propos

Whimsical ceramics, handmade in Montreal, Canada

Beardbangs was formed in spring 2014 as a joint project between myself, Alicia Zwicewicz, and my husband, Josiah Henderson. The project was created to intertwine my love of pottery and drawing (BFA Concordia, 2014) with Josiah’s illustration experience (DEC Illustration and Design, Dawson College, 2010). The business has now become my full-time work, and continues to be inspired by the combination of our graphic styles and interests.

I enjoy designing and carrying through all aspects of production, from mixing colours to achieve the exact hue and value that I desire, to the continuous process of learning about kiln-firing techniques. Most of the pieces I create and sell are thrown on the wheel using a smooth, white stoneware clay, which I find ideal for my purposes in achieving simplicity of design and sturdiness. I apply the colour and shapes using hand-mixed engobes and a paper-resist technique. This colour is applied to the greenware in multiple layers, and the black detailing of the characters’ faces is painted by hand with underglaze. Finally, after the bisque firing I glaze each piece with a hand-mixed, food-safe transparent glaze.

My work is meant to be accessible, to be picked up and used every day, being not only completely useful to daily life but also brightening it. The aspects of this job I love most are seeing someone’s face burst into a smile as they walk past my display, and seeing adults and children alike connect to the bright colours and silly faces of my characters. I am inspired and motivated by these human interactions, and am also influenced by Scandinavian pottery and design, a retro aesthetic, and my family.

We would be glad to talk to you about custom orders or commissions. Please send us a message here on Etsy, or email us at beardbangs [at] gmail.com.

Retours et échanges

If you really don't like what you've received in the mail, you are welcome to send back your order, but the customer must pay shipping on returns.

Items that break in the mail or are defective: We do offer refunds for items that arrive to you chipped, cracked, broken or otherwise defective. For these occurrences, we ask that you send us a photo of your broken/defective item by message. Then we will either send you a new product (or one of similar value that you choose from our in-stock items) or a refund.

Items that get lost in the mail: If your order has not arrived six weeks after it has entered the mail system, we will either replace the order or give you a refund.
