This bowl is an amazing piece of art! We love it so much. Amanda was very nice to deal with, and I will be buying more soon I'm sure.

One Woman Business

Amanda named her shop the Clay Chimera Studio because one of the definitions of chimera is "dream." Is was her dream to be her boss, make art, and support herself on her own terms. Shop was set up in 2011 and production started in Jan 2012. Since then Amanda hasn't looked back and enjoys the life of a full time artist.

We ship with Canada Post.

Orders are very carefully packed and shipped the next business day. All orders in Canada are shipped Priority (7-10 business days). If you want an order shipped Xpresspost (2-3 business days) instead of Priority put that in the comment section of the order with the understanding that you will probably be asked to send the extra that will cost (usually just a few dollars but for a heavy bowl or large order the difference will be significant) to my PayPal account.

I also ship internationally. The cost of shipping is hard to guesstimate so if you live outside Canada and the US (almost anywhere in the world), just ask and I'll be happy to find out the shipping and, if you're still interested, make it available to ship to your country.

The shipping charge is an estimate. If you pay more for shipping than I am actually charged, the difference, if more than $2, will be refunded to you. If you pay less, I take the loss.
Refunds and Exchanges
Customer Satisfaction Guarantee: If, for any reason, you are not happy with your purchase, return the pottery (undamaged, carefully packed and insured) within 10 days of receipt for a full refund of the purchase price. Shipping is not refunded.

Shipping both ways is refunded if the problem is caused by a mistake on my part or a defect in the pottery. Again, it must be returned within 10 days of receipt (You have 10 days to ship it back. It may take 15 or so days for us to receive it.)

If the pottery arrives damaged due to shipping, put the pottery back in the box packed the way it was before you opened it and contact me so that I can file a claim with Canada Post.
Additional policies and FAQs
Thank you very much for your purchase and support of the handmade arts.

-My pottery is handmade. Each piece is unique, even if it’s a set.
-All of my pottery is dishwasher safe, microwave safe and (non-preheated) oven safe.
-My pottery is not suitable to use on the stove top
-All of my pottery is food safe. No lead is used in our glazes, ever!
-I have a No-Questions-Asked return policy.
-Because of the heaviness of the clay and the breakable nature of pottery, my shipping costs are higher than other fine crafts as I need to pack carefully.
