About

Meet the Caldwell's

PERCHED IN THEIR MOUNTAIN SIDE PARK CITY BUNGALOW, SHELLY AND DAVE MAKE A PERFECT ARTISTIC DUO.

Shelly spent many years in Vegas as an apprentice under Tom Coleman, learning to throw, glaze, and fire elegant durable porcelain. Since then, Shelly has developed and honed a timeless style of her own, making her pieces perfect for every style of household. The studio is often covered in sketches and stickies with her latest ideas, the counters full of tools, and the shelves filling up with her newest artistic creations.

David is an airline pilot who has developed a passion for carving, as well as the science behind glazing and firing. The firing process takes 12 hours of attention to the kiln to ensure perfect quality, and it isn't uncommon for Shelly to bring Dave dinner at the kiln because he wants to observe, learn, and perfect his firing process.

When the Caldwell's moved to Park City in 2004, they went to work building a studio and kiln to continue their work. Today, they form a perfect duo developing art for everyone to enjoy.

Frequently asked questions
IS PORCELAIN MORE DURABLE THAN OTHER CERAMICS?

Porcelain, is made from finer, denser clay and is fired at higher temperatures, making it:

-tougher
-more scratch resistant
-more durable
-resistant to stains
than other varieties

Not only is it non-porous and easy to maintain, porcelain is also food, microwave, dishwasher, and oven friendly.

I HAVE OWNED OTHER CERAMICS BEFORE, AND THEY BROKE! WILL YOURS DO THE SAME?

When selling our porcelain in person we often knock the piece on the cement/tile ground, demonstrating how chip and crack resistant our pieces are. Because porcelain is made from finer, denser clay and is fired at higher temperatures, it is far more durable than other varieties (earthenware, stoneware etc).

WILL YOU REFUND EXTRA SHIPPING CHARGES?

In several listings you have the option to purchase an individual piece, or the entire set. Etsy doesn't provide a way to list different shipping options, so you will be charged shipping for the entire set (even if you only purchase 1 item in the set). In these cases, we will refund you the extra amount immediately.

MEASUREMENTS & COLOR

Due to the nature of one of a kind, handmade, wheel thrown porcelain, measurements vary and sizes are approximate. Each item is a unique, one-of-a-kind work of art.
Ceramic glazes all have subtle effects that vary from kiln firing to kiln firing. The glazes may pool in the center, or crackle and craze. Each glazed piece is unique and has its own personality. Glazes seen in the photos may vary slightly in color and appearance, as each glazed piece is unique.

SAME DAY SHIPPING

If you would like your item shipped out the same day, the order must be placed M-F before 1pm MST (not including bank holidays when USPS is closed). This can't always be guaranteed, as we do leave town from time to time. If you are worried about shipping times please send us a private message.
