GoldhawkPotteryEtc's Shop Announcement

Handmade pottery for fun and function! I use an old Randall kick wheel and an electric kiln in my home studio. With my handmade slab roller I make hand constructed pieces too such as plates, platters, vases and more. Read more about my work, get promotions, and preview pottery in progress here:

SPONGE POTS - I was featured in the August 2012 Home Edition of Buffalo Magazine,
YARN BOWLS - were featured in the Marketplace at Vogue Knitting Live in New York City in January 2012!

My vision is to create pottery pieces for everyday use that are unique and well designed. All pottery is handmade by me, using white stoneware clay with my stamp or initials at the bottom. Each piece is fired twice - once in a bisque fire (for 12 hours of firing, then 24 hours of cooling) and then glaze fired in a kiln (also 10 hours of firing to cone 6 or more than 2200 degrees Fahrenheit, then 24 hours of cooling). Therefore, each piece takes at least two weeks from start to finish (and that is the minimum, it generally takes a lot longer than that to fill the kiln). All pottery is also dishwasher, oven and microwave safe. All glazes are lead free and therefore food safe.

The size dimensions are provided in each description. Also, pottery can be heavy and require a larger shipping box so shipping charges may be a little higher than other items such as clothing or jewelry. I ship using Priority mail to US customers (First Class International outside of the US), and if shipping costs less than what I charged, I will refund you the difference over $2. I pack each item in bubble wrap and cushion items with packing peanuts and other materials.

I am pleased to belong to the following teams: Buffalo Etsy Team (Captain), RNEST - Rochester New York Etsy Street Team (RNEST), and the Etsy Mud Team (EMT).

If you are in New York State, I am required to charge sales tax. Its a complicated issue so I am working on determining how best to make this charge as NYS tax rates differ by location all over the state.

Please enjoy and let me know if you have any questions.
