A BIT ABOUT ME & MY STUDIO: I make each and every pot by myself in my own studio called “Dancing Dolphin Pottery” in Ohio, USA. (No studio assistants). I throw these pots on my potter's wheel and fire them in my electric kiln. I love to make these pots! They bring me such joy! As I sit down at my wheel I first bring in Reiki energy to connect with the clay. This energy opens up my creativity and grounds me to Mother Earth. Then I try to listen to what the clay would like to become. When I know that this small ball of clay will be a mug, I form a picture in my inner eye of the shape that I desire. Then my hands and my muses do the rest! Of course, the 5 years of pottery classes and 10 years of practice doesn't hurt! But--there's a point when you let go of all that you've learned and just BE. I highly recommend that everyone with a passion for pottery take a pottery class to experience it for yourself!

HOW I PUT WORDS AND DECORATIONS ON MY POTTERY: The designs that I use on my pottery are the crop circle patterns that please me the most. I print my own laser decals on a laser printer and it's the iron oxide of the toner that burns into the pots in a special 3rd kiln firing. This extra step requires more materials (decals & toner), labor (I spend about 30 min. designing each piece) and electricity. This is why my personalized pots with decals are more expensive than “stamped” personalized pieces. But, of course they are worth it! My pots are high fired to cone 5 for durability and are dishwasher and microwave safe. Also, only lead-free glazes are used.

WHY CROP CIRCLES? The crop circle designs are formations (pictographs or glyphs) found in farmer's fields all over the world. I love them! They are both beautiful and inspirational! I believe they trigger the divine spark in all of us. Although predominantly found in the county of Wiltshire in England, there have also been some in my home state of Ohio! We don't really know who creates them but the patterns are created with sacred geometry. Many, many theories abound! I can't wait to walk into my first crop circle and feel the energies. I'd love to lay down and meditate there.

TIMING: Your custom pots will take about 8-10 weeks to create, so you must be patient. Think of them as functional works of art and it may help. If you need them by a specific date, ORDER EARLY! These pots cannot be rushed. (Note: If you need an “instant gift,”please see my “Pottery Gift Certificates” which I can email). As I said above, my pots require 3 firings and in between these firings there is drying time, glazing and decal treatments going on! The volume of my orders also has alot to do with the time that it takes to complete your order. Creating pottery is a lesson in patience for both the potter and the customer. (Smile)...

Please remember that I'm a one-person studio and I do my best to stay within my self-imposed 6 week turn-around time. So, if you're in a rush, please don't order from me. Stress kills my creativity and then it's not fun anymore. Thank you!

HOW TO ORDER: When you're checking out, here's what I need to know from you in the “NOTES TO SELLER” box:

1). ONE word for inside the handle. THREE words for inside the rim. No exceptions to this! You cannot have the lyrics of your wedding song all around the inside, for example.

2) Is this a gift? If so, please let me know so that I do not include a receipt. If you'd like it shipped directly to them, make sure to put their address in the “Ship To” screen in Paypal. Each mug will arrive beautifully gift-wrapped at no extra charge.

3) Make sure to toggle your DESIGN STYLE choice.
