About KickTheMoonStudio

Sales 1,631
On Etsy since 2008
Video summary: A glimpse into my process. Just a day in the life.

An OCD creator welcomes you to her whacky world of making.

I obsess over pottery, felting and watercolor painting most every minute of my day. Having a short attention span helps to spread the love between my many passions.
I love what I do and am blessed to be able to do what I love.

    I'm a lifelong artist, making mud into magic is my favorite thing of all time. I am a professional fiber artist, besides being a professional potter and include some of that work in my shop. Please enjoy your time here.

    Quality assurance is her #1 job, job #2, according to her, is crap. She sniffs out problems and keeps everything running smoothly, all while maintaining a rigorous, 23 hour nap schedule. Yep, she's that good.

  • Chuy

    Quality Control

    Chuy assists Isabelle with all issues, quality control. She sniffs out trouble and he tackles them, head-on. He's the Assistant's Assistant. He does not respond to email, nor text, no opposable thumbs, you see.

Hey! I accept Pay Pal, credit cards and Etsy Gift Cards.
I ship USPS within the United States. If I can ship first class, I will do so, otherwise, I use Priority.
Usually, and as circumstances allow, I will ship your item within 3 days of receiving confirmed payment. (Weekends and holidays should be taken into consideration, allow more time should you order during one of these).

I do attend live sales events during the year. When I am away at one of these events I will extend my processing time to two (2) weeks and resume my regular 3 day processing upon my return. When I am going away and am away, I will have it posted in my announcements, so please check there.

I purchase insurance for the value of the item, if your item has a value of more than $50, which is what USPS automatically provides. The price of the insurance will be added to the cost of the shipping and will be paid for by the purchaser.

All the items I make are one of a kind. I do use molds or transfer imagery on some of my work but not often and it will be specified in the description when I have done so.
I do wholesale some items that I make and will respond to requests. Thank you.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Yes! I love to work with you to make the perfect gift for your beloved, best friend or self. Just send me a convo and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
This year my cut off date for all custom orders is November 5.

Wholesale availability

I do wholesale a few of my items. Please contact me and we can discuss your needs. Please keep your inquiries in the Etsy messaging. Thank you.

How long does a custom piece take?

The time it takes to make a custom piece depends upon the item. Most pottery pieces take a few weeks. The making, drying, firing schedule is not exact and a lot depends upon ambient humidity, temperature, etc. I slow dry every piece to avoid warping or cracking. And then all pieces are slow fired for the same reason.

Contact me and we can discuss your custom piece and I will give you a time estimate.

My cut-off date for all custom orders is Nov 5, 2021.

How often do you make new items?

I am in my studio almost every day. I work on new items most days that I'm in the studio. I love the creative spark that drives my inventiveness. Many designs/pieces prove popular and are big sellers. Check back often, you never know what will be here.

Sizing details

Size and measurements are usually listed in the Attributes section, but I also like to list measurements separately in the Item Details section. If you have any questions about a specific detail that isn't listed you may send me a convo and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

All measurements listed will be approximate. I try to not round up or down too far and try to reflect the actual size of each item so you know what to expect. I will list measurements in the description on each listing.

Care instructions

My pottery pieces are dishwasher safe as well as microwave save. They are NOT however, stove top or oven use appropriate.
Care should be taken to not drop or bang pieces on hard surfaces, stoneware pottery is durable but not indestructible. Care in use is advised. Any broken pieces should be carefully handled and disposed of in a mindful way.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All pieces will be carefully packed in bubble wrap and put into a sturdy cardboard box for shipping. If you desire, I will include a handwritten card to the recipient.
I do not offer gift wrap at this time.

Sizing details

Each mug is an individual. Having said that, I try to keep the mugs in standard sizing, from 10 fluid ounces up to 22 fluid ounces. Sometimes I will make the oddball 15 or 17 fluid ounce size, but will say so in the description.
And having said all of that, all measurements are approximate.
