About

Victorian modern Pottery for Everyday Elegance

Kieffer Ceramics is 'ornately, elegant pottery for everyday,' designed and handmade by me to bring Victorian modern luxury into your home décor and daily life. I have a diverse range of influences, and seek to marry the splendor of past eras with a modern desire for beauty and utility. Thank you for supporting elegant and handmade from my studio!

Every pot in my shop here is made by me alone. I throw on the wheel, hand-build, and then decorate each one with my own unique blend of processes and influence. I also mix my own glazes from a color palette I developed. Because of the time and passion put into each one of my pieces, my pots are priced accordingly to bring you the highest quality in handmade elegance for everyday use.

I have been a full-time studio potter since 2003, and received my BFA from the N.Y.S.C.C. at Alfred University and MFA from Ohio University, both in ceramics. I have work in numerous public and private collections, have exhibited my work internationally in juried and invitational exhibitions, as well as taught workshops around the country at craft centers and universities.

Frequently asked questions

Sales Tax

Residents of Massachusetts will be charged sales tax.

Shipping Overages

If packing and shipping costs are less than what I've listed to your location, I will refund shipping overages.

Care instructions

Your new piece is both elegant & intended for your use and enjoyment! Please follow the care instructions provided for your unique piece. Handmade pottery can need (and happily, deserves) a little more love to prolong its life than contemporary manufactured ware: Because of the abrasive nature of dishwashing detergent, which could eventually dull the surface over time, hand washing is not necessary, but recommended.

Please keep in mind that while my pottery is quite durable, it is still made from clay and can be damaged if dropped or knocked about. Often, flaws created during impact will not be detectable immediately. Impact flaws can develop into a crack or break with use over time.

I cannot replace ware damaged from use.

Custom and personalized orders

I don't usually take on commissions, but sometimes take requests. If you see something in my shop and would like it in a different color in my palette, or have seen something not currently available that I've sold in the recent past, please email me so I can consider your request and explain the payment process. Please note, it can take from 1-4 months to complete.

Conditions of use

Kristen Kieffer / Kieffer Ceramics bears and accepts no responsibility for injury or damage which may result from the improper use of Kieffer Ceramics ware; from a product modified or repaired by others; or from abuse, abnormal use, or use beyond normal product life. Our maximum liability to you is the amount you paid for the item(s) purchased. Please read my Care information prior to using your Kieffer Ceramics pottery. Contact me directly with any questions you might have about your pottery.
