Thanks for stopping by Clarey Clayworks. We are happy to have you here!

If you need help registering or finding other general information on how to purchase from this site, make sure to check out

Please list ALL necessary information regarding your piece including personalization, and event/date in the “message to seller” section at checkout. Unless otherwise noted in individual item descriptions, usual turn-around time for custom pieces is 7-10 days plus shipping. Please plan accordingly. If you are in doubt whether your piece will arrive in time, please contact me to discuss.
Items listed that are marked “ in stock” or “ready to ship” will be sent out within 3 business days (or sooner if agreed upon) of receipt of payment.
Once your order is placed, you will receive an email receipt through Etsy confirming the sale. You will receive a second email from me notifying you of when your item has shipped. If Priority Mail is used, you will receive a tracking number.

Clarey Clayworks hand forms each and every piece, one at a time, ensuring that no two items are the same. Subtle variations in shapes and differences in glazes are desirable as they add to the unique character of each work. Most of our pieces contain lettering that is individually hand-stamped. A certain 'unevenness' in spacing of characters is to be expected and adds to the one-of-a-kind charm of the piece. All ceramics are fired twice as only this time honored step of glazing can guarantee your piece will be properly sealed and waterproof. It also ensures your heirloom will resist yellowing or fading for the many generations it was crafted to be used.
Photos shown for listed items may be representative of the design and not the specific listed piece. Every effort is made to give an accurate description of each item.

Once the packaged has been shipped from our shop, it is in the care of the carrier. As we strive to make sure that shipping information is correct, we cannot control what happens once the has left us and is en route. Sometimes the carrier will try to place the package in a inconspicuous location, or with a neighbor. Once your tracking number has been received (the tracking number is emailed once your order has been shipped) begin checking the appropriate carrier website to see the shipping status. If the status of the package states that it has been delivered and you still have not received it, consult the carriers website for instructions. IF your order is lost by the carrier, insurance by USPS (up to $100) is included in the Priority Mail shipping fee. Please contact us and we can assist you with the claims process.

Frequently asked questions

Can my Baptism Bowl™ be used in the actual ceremony?

Yes! Your Baptism Bowl™ is specially designed to pour the baptismal waters during the ceremony. Holy water can be housed in any clean container or vessel. We have received wonderful feedback and numerous compliments from Catholic priests, deacons and other multi-denominational ministers who have used our bowls. We do recommend, as a courtesy, that you give the priest or minister notice prior to the ceremony so that he or she may properly prepare.
