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

FIRST TIME BUYERS
If you need help registering or finding other general information on how to purchase from this site, make sure to check out http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php

PLACING AN ORDER
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.

ABOUT YOUR PURCHASE
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.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
We take great pride in crafting your item and make every effort to get it to you in one piece! Each item is packed securely and with utmost care.

NO refunds will be made for custom orders unless error is on the part of the seller.

PLEASE check your order for proper dates and name spellings PRIOR to submitting. We cannot guarantee any changes once your order is received and work has begun. If you need to cancel an order, please contact us immediately. If work has begun on your piece(s) no refunds will be made.

We want you to love your keepsake as much as we enjoyed crafting it. If you are not happy with your order, please contact me directly at anne[at]clareyclayworks.com before leaving feedback. I want every opportunity to correct any problems - our goal is to create a piece you will ultimately cherish.

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.
