I purchased these as backups for my first one I got and for a couple friends of mine. They absolutely loved them and I am looking forward to getting another couple for other friends
I'm pretty sure I covered just about everything here on this page, if you need more info or have any questions, please feel free to convo me! :)
Some general info ~
My main medium is clay, fired to a Cone 6 low stoneware, with appropriate glazes, when fired all wares are AP non-toxic, and safe for foods, beverages, dinnerwares, microwave / dishwasher safe.
All metals used in wares are 100% copper wire (of varying guages), and 100% sterling silver wire (of varying guages), all forms hand-made and hand-hammered by me.
All organic materials, ie - branches, dried flowers, moss, bones, etc... are all natural shed / harvested, unless otherwise stated in individual listing.
Mystical / magickal wares that are able to be used with heat, ie - charcoal disks, insenses, herbs, etc... are accompanied with a 2 - 4oz (depending on size of ware) bag of sand with directions attatched for use, in order to keep finished glaze from blemishes due to direct / prolonged heat or flame.
For info on custom orders refer to the Additional Information section at the bottom of this page. Thanks! :)
My (breif :) Philosophy ~
Whatever I create, I am a receptical for the energy imbued into matter, that particular ware. I guide its physical creation with attention to the overall functional ability and structual quality, yet still allowing the clay to have a direction in its own unique shape and flow ~ whether I am hand-building, wheel -throwing, sculpting, carving, or slabbing.
Color and embellishments are spoken to me be the individual peice. I make a wide variety of items and styles, yet all are relatable to my connection with, interpretation of, and perception of Nature, the natural world, cycles, etc... life as it reveals itself in that moment to me, through me.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
If you live near and are arranging your own delivery without needing shipping, convo me before purchase.
Reserved listings will be held for 14 days, beginning from request. If after that time there is no valid payment OR convo about payment, the listing will be taken off reserve, and item will be held or sold at my discretion.
My shipping is based on Prepaid packages through the USPS Priority Mail, included is delivery confirmation. You can track your package through them with your tracking number.
I also re-use sturdy boxes and wrapping, and shredded paper for added cushion, and am generous with packing tapes. I focus on packing my wares securely, to ensure safe arrival to you.
I estimate shipping based on weight and size when re-using various boxes, if there is any overpaid shipping on the customer's end exceeding $1.25 or more, the difference will be refunded to your Paypal account, usually within 5 to 7 days along with notification from me.
All wares are OOAK, I do not provide insurance on shipping cost. It is up to the buyer to carry insurance on the package, and file any claims.
Currently I do not have INTERNATIONAL information filled in for shipping costs on items. If you are out of the continental USA and would like to purchase an item ~ convo me with info on your location, and I will figure exact shipping for you. If then you choose to purchase item, it can be reserved for you with your exact shipping cost.
*Note I cannot ship sand (for insense burners) over borders.
Refunds and Exchanges
Every listing has multiple, quality photos of item, description including inspiriation, colors, measurements / dimensions, if any packaging / descriptions are included ~ so the buyer knows exactly what to expect.
Kin of Fire is not responsible for item once it enters USPS shipping, nor for any damages or loss through shipping. - refer to Shipping Policy - packing.
*The buyer has the option to carry insurance on package and file any claims themselves.
Additional policies and FAQs
I craft with intent, mingled with request, and focus on the person as much as possible, with still allowing artistic freedom in the flow and structual quality in a ware's form itself.
* If you would like a ware to be created during a specific moment, ie ~
Moon phase, planetary allignment, celestial occurence, date, etc... - convo me for availability for crafting, and additional pricing.*
My listings will have a general size descriptor of Small, Medium, Large, X-large. Along with specific measurments / dimensions per individual listing.
* If you would like an item made for you, you can request from the general sizes of Small, Medium, Large, X-large - NOT specific measurements / dimensions.*
Colors can be requested, again within reason of what glazes Kin of Fire already uses on listed wares ~ if you would like a color that you do not see, convo me for availability.
Also allow for variances in glazes for each indiviual ware.
For added info on my process of creating / crafting, please read the Welcome at the top of this Policy page. Thank you!
