JCalcagnoPottery's Shop Announcement

I love creating hand thrown stoneware..... both decorative and functional. My work is decorated in a floral Japanesque style reminiscent of the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau movements. The blending of a highly glazed slip decoration against a rich stoneware surface give my work its distinction. Inspiration comes from my tranquil flower garden and many trips to Japan. I have enjoyed being a studio potter for almost 40 years.

I like meeting the people that use my work but I have set up this Etsy store to give my customers an easy way to purchase pieces without traveling to a show or my studio. I'm hoping this new process works for both sides.

If you are new to my work please go to my website:

There you can view my portfolio, learn more about my decorating process and sign up for my newsletter with seasonal show information.

Welcome to my Etsy store. I am offering hand thrown stoneware fired in a gas reduction kiln, and decorated with colored porcelain slip. My motifs are inspired by nature and reflect a long study of Japanese ceramics. I believe in the philosophy of the craftsman William Morris...."Have nothing in your house that you do not believe to be useful or believe to be beautiful" I hope I can provide you with a treasured piece of pottery for your own use.

I have used UPS as my shipper for many years and have never had a thing may cost a couple dollars more but is worth it in the long run. Most often I double box for extra safety and use recycled materials as much as possible.
Please remember that UPS does not deliver to P.O. Boxes....if this is a problem please let me know.

If I have overestimated the postage (can happen when buying more that one item that ship easily together) I will refund your Pay Pal account or credit card.

I will try to ship within 3 business days after receipt of payment. If you need an piece sooner please let me know.
