I love my new spoon rest! It looks like a lily pad. Or a frog's tongue. And it's the perfect size for all manner of spoons and ladles. Awesome!

Like Reconnecting With An Old Friend
For the fun and love of it, I create handmade pottery at my home on my pottery wheel in my small home studio. My enjoyment in clay has been a constant in my life since my first exposure as a child. Over the years, as I pursued educational & professional achievements in the healthcare arena, I noted that time and time again, I came back to ceramics for the calm, focus, fun and passion it has never failed to give me.
All of my work is handmade by me and fired in my electric kiln.
Adding beauty to clay with form and color while creating functional pieces that can be used on a daily basis is my goal.
All items for serving, consumption or preparation of food are lead free, food-safe, oven-safe, microwave-safe, and diswasher-safe.

Welcome to my etsy shop. I enjoy the creation of beautiful handmade functional art. In my efforts I learn a lot from the pursuit of form as well as sometimes from the occasional happy accident that strips away 'the plan' and shows me new ideas. These pieces are meant to be used in your daily life - to eat, drink, sip, pour, touch. Please find here mugs, jugs, bottles, bowls, and pitchers as well as the serendipitous entries to come.

We do our best to be green and keep the environment in mind when we are in our creative state; we recycle our clay from our pot trimmings and use recycled packing materials when they are available.
Please feel free to contact me via Etsy with any questions or regarding custom orders.
Each item from my studio is a one-of-a-kind functional art piece for your everyday use and special occasions. They are fabulous gifts from the heart and you are guaranteed to be presenting an original, handmade gift from LoJoCeramics that will be valued and remembered always. Artistic designs and craftsmanship reflect the standards of the giver and the recipient alike.
• I use the finest materials available to ensure the quality of my product.
• The pottery I have listed is made from the same materials as the pottery used in my own home, by my own family.
• Although all of my items are handmade and not a result of mass production or made via slip casting, any potential defect that could potentially be an issue is always listed in the description of the piece and photographed.
All of the glazes used on functional pieces are:
• Microwave Safe
• Dishwasher Safe
• Oven Safe
A NOTE ON SHIPPING COSTS:
Shipping sure is expensive and here's a little of the reason why: As you know, pottery is fragile and can sometimes be a weighty item to ship. A majority of the time, I ship an item in its own inner box with protective packaging material. The inner boxes are then placed in an outer box for further protection against breakage. I ship via USPS Priority Mail (1-3 days) unless Parcel Select (2-9 days) mail is significantly less expensive & the buyer does not mind the extra delay. For very large packages, I ship via FedEx. For very small shipment, I use USPS First Class Mail.
Thus, I have gone to a system of giving an estimate of shipping and refunding overages beyond $2 after the shipping details are finalized.
HOW EACH PIECE IS CREATED
Each piece is either hand thrown on a pottery wheel or hand built.
Please note that actual colors may vary from what you see on your screen depending on your monitor settings. Some glazes also look significantly different in different types of light. When that is the case I include pictures in natural light and in a photo box controlled setting. I do my best to describe each piece in detail- if you have questions about color or need additional pictures please contact me before you make a purchase.
If you don't find what you were looking for, please take a look at other items from my shop contact me via Etsy with questions or inquiries about custom orders.

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
If estimated shipping charges turn out to be incorrect, I will refund any overcharges beyond my actual shipping and handling costs once they exceed $1.
Each piece is wrapped in tissue paper, boxed in a snug box and then placed in a larger box with material that will cushion and protect the inner box. When I pack each item, I pack to ensure safe delivery to you with the horrible picture in my head of the potential of "that" box being drop kicked across a room. Yes shipping costs are going up. Plus I do not have the large corporate discount afforded to the large companies. I promise I am not profiting from shipping fees.
I will ship via USPS Mail - usually Priority (up to 3 days estimate of delivery) or First Class. For larger packages, I will use USPS Parcel Select (2-9 days) or Fedex Ground/Home Delivery (4 business days). Please verify your Paypal shipping address as well as your address with etsy.
For International Shipping, I can ship USPS First Class Mail International (delivery times vary, could be 3-4 weeks, delivery confirmation) or Priority Mail International (6-10 days delivery estimate, tracking, delivery confirmation and higher cost) . Please let me know if you desire speedy delivery of Priority Mail Int'l or less cost on shipping and you don't mind the wait time associated with First Class Mail Int'l. Most estimates are made using First Class Mail International rates (except for many sets and irregularly shaped items) so unless we discuss your order and add additional shipping charges, please expect USPS First Class International service and delivery time. Customs charges are the responsibility of the buyer/recipient.
Refunds and Exchanges
You may return a item for a refund (minus outgoing shipping charges) or exchange credit (also minus shipping charges) for something else within by notifying me of your intent to return and desire for refund/exchange within 7 days of receipt and returning the item in original salable condition within 14 days of the original purchase arrival. The buyer is responsible for return shipping costs. Please use original shipping material to protect the item and PLEASE purchase insurance. Refunds or credits will be provided only when the item has been returned to me in its original condition.
In the unlikely event of a damaged item, please keep the item together with the original packaging until the claim with the courier can be settled.
Please contact me for with questions or for clarifications.
A refund will be made to the purchaser upon request if payment has been received. Gift recipients are entitled to a nonrefundable merchandise credit.
