A potter with a background in design

I have always loved making things, for as long as I can remember. My love of art and creating things drove me to a career as a graphic designer, but I always longed to make things with my hands.
For a long time I thought about taking ceramic classes to learn how to make pottery myself. A few years ago, I finally took a hand building class, and I was hooked. My passion was lit and I knew I didn't want to stop making pottery and learning new things! It's amazing craft and there is so much to learn.
Hopefully my love of the medium and material comes through in my work <3

I am now working in the pottery studio full time, and am able to dedicate myself to my ceramic work completely. I love being able to make things with my hands for people who love handcrafted things.

Shipping and Delivery

All items are hand-made to order, unless marked as ready to ship. Since I am making each item individually based off your order, a lead time of 4-6 weeks should be expected. I will try and complete your order as fast as possible to ensure that you get your item as quickly as possible.
If you need something by a specific date please get in touch and we will figure out together what we can do to make it happen.

My pottery arrived broken :( What happens?

If any of the items in your order arrive broken or damaged in transit, please do the following:
1. Let me know as soon as possible, within 5 days of receiving your package.
2. Please provide photos of the damage
3. Please provide photos of the box if it was damaged, if not please let me know

I will replace any items that have been damaged in transit at no cost to you :) Nothing is worse than having something arrive broken, and it is just as devastating for me. The cost associated for me to replace items for free is significant, but I am happy to do it for anyone who has received a broken item!

Alternatively, we can arrange to refund the items that arrived broken, if you contact me within 5 business days of receiving your package.

I live in Montreal, can I come pick up my order to save on shipping?

Yes! Definitely :) Send me a message and we will set it up and I can provide you with a coupon code to waive the cost of shipping on your order. Once your piece is made, I will send you a message through etsy to let you know your pottery is ready. If you prefer I contact you another way to let you know, please indicate during check-out :)

Custom and personalised orders

Many people request personalized initials to be added to the bottom of their mugs, because I am offering made to order items I am more than happy to do this! I do however ask that you add the "Add Custom Lettering" listing to your order to let me know you want the personalization. It is only 3$ CAD to add personalization.

Adding this item to your order will add a delivery cost, but I will reimburse you the extra shipping cost after you place your order. Unfortunately this is the best way I could find to deal with this issue.

Custom items are final sale.


I accept returns from customers in Canada but at this time cannot accept returns from customers outside of Canada.

All customized items are final sale. If you want initials engraved or any other customized item I cannot accept returns for those items.

Items that are returned will be reimbursed but customers are responsible for postage cost of returned items. I will not refund postage price on the original order.

Thank you for understanding!
