Announcement    Hi Friends! Custom order, shipping, and availability info below!

Thanks for coming to check me out! I hang out mostly on Instagram @aleathabean where you'll get the most up to date posts on all my shinanigans.

If you're looking for something specific, let me know! Send me a message and we'll chat about your pottery dreams and if I'm the right person to create for you.

I do shipments with Canada Post once a week, usually Tuesdays. To keep costs low I offer free standard shipping within Canada and the United States, and a small standard shipping fee everywhere else. Standard shipping within Canada has a tracking number (Yipee!) but outside of Canada standard shipping DOES NOT include a tracking number. if you'd like a tracking number, please upgrade your shipping preference. If you opt for standard shipping and it gets lost I'm sorry to say that I will not be offering refunds. Arrival times vary depending on where you live.

Please note: things seem to be taking a little longer to get where they're going due to the increased mail activity with Covid-19. Especially orders travelling overseas. Please expect delays. This issue is unfortunately out of my hands.

If you're local to Brockville Ontario Canada and would rather pick up your order, please send me a message when you check out so we can arrange a contact-free porch pick-up.

I also have items available at Pickle and Myrrh in Merrickville, an adorable Handmade Caramel shop with tons of amazing gourmet treats and handmade artisanal products. Follow along with them on social media @pickleandmyrrh

Another place to shop is @anderwoodstudio in Bath Ontario where they've got lots of cool things, including a small collection of my pots.

I cant wait to wrap up your order! Thanks again!

On Etsy since 2011

Trying my best to integrate play, joy, and love into every aspect of my life. Im hoping to bring some to your life too in the form of my works of art.

Hey friends! I'm Aleatha.

I'm the type of person to stop and pet your dog, or take a picture of a bug, or marvel at the veins of an especially good leaf. I will almost always say yes to dessert and doodle on everything I'm allowed to. See that mom? I wont doodle on the walls anymore.. unless I'm allowed to. Promise.

In winter of 2017/18 I signed up for a pottery class with Krista Cameron. She had reached out to me when she saw a polymer clay necklace I'd made and invited me to try out clay. I'm in love with the medium. I love that each morsel of unused clay can be reclaimed into something new. I love that it has such permanence and strength once its fired. I love that clay is such a physical way of creating and has so many stages of preparation. I love that you can touch and interact with a piece of art while you do something we all do - eat. I love it. I worked under her tutelage for 2 years, and built up my own collection of tools to start making a home based studio and in 2019 I added a kiln - the final tool to the kit. Now I can take myself through the whole process from mud to mug (or bowl or plate or decorative wall hanging phallus, whatever).

I get creative in lots of other ways too. I've always loved making jewelry, way back since jazzy jewelry kit days. I will always have a soft spot for painting and drawing. Every winter calls me to crotchet at least half of a scarf. And decorating a cake makes me feel like some sort of mastermind/masochist as I plunge a fork into a fresh masterpiece. My etsy shop has and will continue to reflect whatever I've got my hands on at the moment.. unless its cake. I'm just going to go ahead and eat that.

My daily goal is to live artfully. To create my life the way I create my work - playfully, creatively, slowly, and with joy. I'm not going to claim that it happens every day, it doesn't, but we've all got goals, right?

I would absolutely love to send you a little piece of my life - a momento of my time, my passion, and my love. And I will most likely doodle on the box too.
