About CatClayShop

Sales 825
On Etsy since 2015

It all started with a kitten...

Is it really any surprise that a cat is the founder & president of Cat Clay? Miss Clifton, the cat behind Cat Clay, says that it's surprising that cats aren't CEOs of all feline-related corporations. After all, cats are incredibly intelligent and have first-paw knowledge of those industries.

It all started in 2001: Miss Clifton was found abandoned alone in a field when she was 5 weeks old. Sabra Wood fell in love with this teacup kitten and signed up to be her life-long (mediocre) servant.

Shortly after that, Sabra left her career in marketing & finance. Miss Clifton didn't want her underfoot all day, and decided that a career in clay was just the thing!

With Miss Clifton at the helm, and Sabra following her direction, Cat Clay has become well-known for its sweetly-seditious pottery.

We design images and fired them onto both our hand-made pottery as well as vintage & up-cycled china.

And not surprisingly, kitties are featured in many items, including our Pawsa anytime ornament.

    Owner

    Hi! I'm the founder & president of Cat Clay, a small pottery studio in upstate New York. As a calico, I'm high energy and full of great ideas. Thank goodness I have my loyal staff member, Sabra, to turn my designs into pottery!

  • Sabra Wood

    Creator

    I'm the human part of Cat Clay. You can find me in the studio 5 days a week, carrying out Miss Clifton's directions. I love the combination of working in clay and firing images onto it.

    As a lifetime devotee of cats, and with many years of experience in retail and administrative assistance, working with Cat Clay (remotely these days) is a purr-fect fit! I am also an artist, and a knitter with my own shop, Fuzzy Details.

Returns and exchanges
All items are carefully and lovingly packaged to ensure against possible damage. However, if your piece does arrive damaged or broken in any way, please do not hesitate to let me know immediately so that I may rectify the situation as fast as possible!

If for some reason a piece fails to reach you (for example, if your tracking number states that a piece is delivered, but you never received it), please contact me! These things happen, but just because your piece is lost or stolen does not mean that you're out of luck! Please respect the "honor code"; if your piece is genuinely missing, I will send a brand new one as fast as I can create it, free of charge, with a "signature confirmation" to ensure that if you're not home to receive it, you can pick it up at your local post office.

If you are unhappy with your piece that you have received, you may return it to Cat Clay for a full refund, minus the cost of return shipping. As soon as the piece is safely received by me and has no intentional damage by the customer, I will issue your refund within 48 hours.

---- My primary goal is always your complete satisfaction, and I want you to love what you buy! My dedication to your Cat Clay pottery does not end when I ship your piece to you, so feel free to contact me at any time with follow up questions! ----

Please treat your Cat Clay item as you would fine china: don't use in the microwave or oven and wash by hand. This will ensure years of enjoyment!
