LOVE THIS LITTLE SIGN!!! It's perfect for my front yard. It arrived quickly. It was packaged well and even the outside of the shipping box was decorated! I hope it does the trick and our neighbors will get the message. Thank you SO much! Fondly, Susan Wyatt

Delightful Designs in Clay

I started making pottery about 25 years ago at a community center. I always had so much fun experimenting with the many techniques "pottery" has to offer. Each pot became special. I never wanted to sell any! So, to support my habit, the signs and garden stakes became my niche. New themes are endless and often depend on my mood. I never know what will pop out of me when I get in the zone! While my work is not considered fine art- that's OK. It's FUN art and it connects with people. I love to hear the laughter when someone reads a sign & says "that's me right there!"

My "Pot Shoppe" is a small back yard studio that was once a tool shed. It overlooks my husbands beautiful Koi pond. I'm located very close to some premier clay facilities, but I love being at home, doing this. Recently, due to unforseen circumstances, I finally quit my day job! I hope that you enjoy my work. Thank you for your interest & support.

WELCOME to my Delightful Etsy store!

I'm a message maker. I work from my small, but delightful, backyard studio in Gulfport, Florida. This keeps my costs lower and allows me to be available to my family. Please expect variations in my work as everything I sell is always handmade by me.

I always ship USPS because it is very convenient to me. After I ship I will provide you with a tracking number.

Everything on my site is available to ship right away. I almost always ship within 1-2 days. I estimate shipping costs as my packaging varies. If I have grossly overestimated shipping I will refund anything over $2.00.

FYI- I use CLEAN, recycled materials for packing from my former "real job." I'm just trying to keep costs low- and be a little greener.
Additional policies and FAQs
I will be happy to work w/ YOUR custom order requests. Everyone envisions different things, so I like to convo a few times (& maybe sketch out a sample) to make sure we are on the same page.

My painting is very simple, (no roses, please) but if you have a special need just ask. We can figure something out!

Keep in mind that there is a firing process. Some orders can be completed faster than others depending on what stage of the firing process I'm in. (Making or glazing) It could be 2-4 weeks to complete your order, maybe longer in some cases. I try to get it out as soon as possible. If you have a deadline, please let me know. I'll try my best to get it to you in time. Everything on my page is ready to go.

Wholesale orders- please convo me! I would love to put together a grouping of my items for your retail brick & mortar boutique.

I only do local consignment.

All my work is handmade so there will always be variations. No 2 can ever be exact and things change as I continue the process of being a maker.
