This bowl made its way across the Atlantic without a hitch. I sincerely appreciated the easy, no hassle attitude of the seller, and his well thought out method of packing!

Welcome to the Tried By Fire online shop.My goal is to create a friendly space to browse and buy.Most of the items you'll find on this site were fired in a kiln,manipulated in a flame,forged or altered significantly from their original state.
Glaze pops,misses,stilt marks,crazing and other process oriented occurrences will not be considered "damage" unless they seriously detract from the arrearance and enjoyment of the object.
Any post-production damage including chips,scratches,hairlines,cracks,rust,etc.will be clearly stated,described and shown visually ,if possible,in the photos that accompany the listing.
Your purchases will be well packed-fragile and easily damaged materials will be double boxed.I've sold many pieces of vintage pottery over the years and have yet to lose a piece to in-transit damage. Having said all that,I don't control the behavior of the carriers.Our damage claim policy is described in detail below.
I have been a collector/dealer myself for many years and understand the passion of the pursuit . Communication is important and will lead to a much better transaction.Any questions you have may be forwarded through the conversation button at the top of the page.
