Announcement    Welcome to InFlux Ceramics, handmade porcelain ceramics by Esther Ann Smith.

As the sole owner and maker, I am committed to creating finely crafted ceramics that are functional for daily use, as well as being beautiful and elegant objects in and of themselves. I strive to bring joy to others through my ceramic creations.

My work is made from a smooth mid range porcelain clay, either thrown on the wheel or handbuilt. It is decorated, fired, glazed and finish fired by me in my studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

I hope you enjoy your visit. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. Thanks for stopping!

Returns and exchange details
Please contact me directly if you have any problems with your order. If you are not happy with your purchase, you can return it for a full refund if you contact me within 7 days. Customer is responsible for the return shipping. Please contact me prior to shipping the piece back to discuss the refund. Please ship within 14 days in the original packing materials.
Payment
I accept credit cards, debit cards and Etsy gift cards.
Shipping
I pack each item in bubble wrap as well as paper, surrounded by peanuts in a sturdy box. In many cases I will double box the items. I take great care in packaging my pieces to make sure they arrive safely. I am happy to replace or refund anything that arrives damaged. In this case, please photograph the item and contact me as soon as possible to discuss.

I use USPS 2-3 day Priority Mail for most items. They will ship 1-3 business days from purchase date, estimating arrival at 5-7 days from your purchase date. Tracking and insurance up to $50.00 is included.

USPS may standardize your address to ensure it will arrive. If it seems very different from the address you've entered I will contact you to make sure, yet usually I will use their recommendations.

For earrings, I will ship First class package service and it will take 3-5 days. There is NO tracking or insurance with 1st class package service.

Please make sure you are shipping to a secure location-I am not responsible for stolen packages.

The shipping cost you see also includes handling and the cost of packing materials: boxes, packing paper, bubble wrap, foam, and tape. I try to reuse packing materials and/or boxes when clean and available.

I currently am only shipping within the United States.

SANTA FE Customers:
For anyone living in Santa Fe or nearby-I am willing to arrange a local pick-up. Convo or email me to arrange a time/place, and I will send you a coupon code for free shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
I try my best to accurately reflect the colors in the photographs using daylight, yet my glazes are translucent and can appear different depending on the light source as well as the computer monitor.

The dimensions listed are approximate. Please make sure to take note of them before ordering so not to be surprised by the size. I try to reflect the size in photos but provide the measurements to give you a more accurate idea.
Pottery Care:

*The porcelain and glazes I use are very durable, yet handmade pottery deserves and needs more care than manufactured wares. Although it is dishwasher and microwave friendly, I recommend washing by hand in order to prolong its life and your enjoyment of it.
The unglazed surfaces, such as bottoms of cups or bowls, may get dirty with use and can be sanded with sandpaper to remove discoloration.
