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:

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.

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.

About

The love of pottery and muddy hands

I started my shop in 2009 during a period of unemployment. Pottery was the best part of that time and my brother urged me to join Facebook which helped me to reach out to a lot of people. I learned about Etsy and made the connection. I was so thrilled to connect to people around the world who love handmade goods. Now I make pottery full time, or nearly full time (in between teaching and consulting gigs) so I make pieces that many people want, while also trying to make unique pieces that make me happy. I have a background in painting so I love to make pieces that I can try to paint on such as plates, bowls, and mugs.

    Owner, Stoneware Pottery

    I began making pottery for fun in a studio in Washington, DC in 1998. I think there are some people who are just born to love to feel clay in their hands, and that's me. I now make wheel thrown pottery out of my home studio outside of Buffalo, NY.

Welcome to GoldhawkPotteryEtc! I create pottery for everyday use and enjoyment. Most pots are made from stoneware clay and glazes that have been tested and are lead free and certified food safe. The pottery is also dishwasher, microwave and oven safe. Let me know if you are looking for something special!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept payment through Etsy via DIrect Checkout as well as Paypal. An electronic check is also ok (if it can be processed through Paypal). If paying with an electronic check, I will hold the pottery order until the check has been cleared by the bank.
Shipping
For US customers, my pottery is usually shipped via USPS priority mail within a day of the receipt of payment. For Canada and international destinations, I use First Class International. If you prefer another service, please send me a convo and I can determine the additional price (I would create a custom order for you and will notify you of the new listing). I take care in packing to ensure your pottery arrives safely. I use bubble wrap, peanuts, air pillows and other packing materials to secure the pottery during transit, and I try to keep it as light as possible. If the shipping costs are lower than the charge, I will refund excess shipping charges over $1.

I do ship internationally using First Class International as it is the most affordable.

International Buyers (outside of the US), Please note:

Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges, which could be high, are your responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to find out what these additional costs will be prior to purchasing.

Per U.S. and international government regulations, I cannot mark purchases as gifts and must declare the actual value. Falsifying customs forms is illegal and can result in your package being confiscated, fines levied and/or other penalties.

I am also happy to send a gift to a friend for you with a note on a postcard. Include the note in the comments section when purchasing your pottery and I will include your message in the box.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not happy, convo me and I will make things right. I make sturdy pottery so it is unlikely that pieces will break during shipment.

RETURNS: Customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance to me. If for any reason you are not happy with your purchase, please contact me within 5 days of the time you receive your items. Returns will be accepted if I am contacted within that time and the item is in its original condition when returned. If you receive the piece in a broken condition, please let me know immediately and send me a photo of the broken piece so I can contact the Postal Service. I do track shipments to the US and most countries so I know when they arrive. Priority Mail offers shipping insurance for items valued at $50 or less so I can refund you or make another item.

Returns will be processed through Etsy Direct Checkout or Paypal once I receive the returned merchandise in its original condition. You will be refunded your purchase price minus shipping costs. All returns should be shipped USPS Priority with delivery confirmation.

I do my best to describe and photograph my items as accurately as possible. If you are dissatisfied with your purchase for any reason, please contact me. I am always eager to answer any question or concerns.
Additional policies and FAQs
I welcome wholesale and consignment inquiries. Special order requests welcomed. Unfortunately i cannot accept rush orders since pottery takes a minimum of two weeks to create and fire.
