Buffy was wonderful to work with. Great communication & understanding. The cross is gorgeous---even better than I could have imagined. It is perfect in every way. I HIGHLY recommend this artist, she is delightful & very talented. Thanks so much!

I appreciate that the artist is experimenting and showing new work, which is very different than the original pieces I purchased. I have found someone I will continue to follow. All of my questions are answered quickly. While I had plans to mount this on my fence post, I liked it too much and it now sits on my windowsill.

I purchased this item because I had a good experience with a previous purchase. The workmanship is as good as the photo portrays. I had my first piece customized and dealing with the artist was a pleasure.

About

I create beauty out of mud and broken glass, using muddy fingers and a grateful heart.

It only took me 30 minutes to fall in love with clay. But being artistically fickle, I also am in the midst of an intense love affair with glass fusing. I couldn't choose just one, so I decided to follow my heart and marry them both!

From wall crosses to angels, my work is created using my own unique three part process that fuses dichroic and art glass to the hand built ceramic surface. Every piece is a distinctive work of art whose purpose is to be an everyday visual reminder of God's unselfish gifts of love and grace.

I work from my backyard studio in a converted garage apartment with my top Security Team of Zeke and Pudge, who keep me safe from evil squirrels and other neighborhood bad guys.

I believe that my artistic talents are a gift from God and all my work is a direct reflection of the visions He puts into my pointy little head. But the best part of what I get to do for a living is the sheer wonder of creating something beautiful basically out of mud and glass that I break with a hammer. How great is that!!

Shop policies

Last updated on September 24, 2014
Hello and thank you for visiting the Laughing Crafter Studio. I really appreciate your confidence and support in my work. Here's the scoop on my basic shop policies but if you have any questions feel free to Convo through Etsy or by my website email: Buffy [!at] laughingcrafter.com

***********************************
Custom Designs:

No two pieces of mine are ever exactly alike, I LOVE to create custom pieces of all sizes and never charge you extra for the privilege. Just contact me by email if you are interested in a custom order and we can discuss what you have in mind.

Just please keep in mind that clay must dry to a certain point before I can do the first firing, so the weather can be a factor in the timing. So with that in mind, please allow up to three weeks for any custom orders.

***************************************

Feedback Ratings:

I value my honesty and integrity as a Seller and I enjoy a 100% positive feedback rating on Etsy, so set you can shop with confidence.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Payment options:

At this time I accept online payments through PayPal and Etsy's own Direct Checkout. Keep in mind that PayPal likes Verified Buyers, so if you are not a Verified Buyer, it could mean a delay in the shipping until payment goes through. If you are in my local area, I will occasionally take a local check. Please contact me first to discuss that option.
Shipping
How I ship:

I generally ship by UPS, FedEx and USPS... whatever is the best value for your location. I use tons of packing material and often double box ceramic pieces to protect them during shipping. Because I use quality packing materials, I charge a flat fee for all shipping. However, I DO NOT charge extra if I combine more than one piece into a shipment for you.

What if it breaks?

By now you've probably seen the video of that delivery guy tossing packages over the fence instead of safely delivering them to the door... I understand that stuff like that happens and pieces will occasionally break in transit.

So I insure all packages for the cost of goods sold and we'll work together to find a piece to replace whatever is broken. Or if you decide not to replace the piece, I can refund you what you paid for the piece(s) but, unfortunately, not the shipping costs.
Refunds and Exchanges
What if I just don't like it after all?

If you decide that the piece is just not what you wanted after all, I can fully refund the cost of the piece after I receive it back in the same condition that you received it. So it is your responsibility to ship it back to me as carefully wrapped with shipping costs and insurance paid.

I'm sure you can understand that if the piece is broken or damaged coming back to me, I will only be able to refund you half of your purchase price so please be sure to take a good look and ask any questions before you purchase an item.
Additional policies and FAQs
I guarantee all my work. Items that are dishwasher, microwave and food safe will be marked as such but the Laughing Crafter Studio cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use.

Please convo me if you are interested in wholesale pricing or bulk purchases.
