    It’s aesthetically gorgeous, I can’t wait to see my results. Shipping was prompt and impeccably packaged for safety of the fragile crock. A+ seller and I intend to be a repeat customer as the budget allows.

    Great bowls! I bought one a few weeks ago, and I liked it so much that I bought two more. I love this shop and will be buying more from this wonderful artist in the future.

A Note about Wood Fired Pots

Wood firing is an exciting and labour-intensive process, and often unpredictable and serendipitous in its results. This includes wonkiness, warping, and wobbliness. The kiln gets hot enough for the clay to start to melt and warp, and that means that we don't always get out perfectly round or perfectly stable pots. And you know what? We actually don't care! The surfaces, ash melt, flame trails and colour palate that we get in exchange for a little bit of perfection/functionality is totally worth it, as far as we're concerned. However, it behooves me to tell you, dear customer, that sometimes your bowl might wobble a little on a flat table. Your mug might have a dink in it. Your pickling crock might have a cosmetic crack. That's right. These pots are as wonky and off-kilter as I am. They've been through hell and sometimes it shows, and I'm proud of them for bearing their scars while maintaining their beauty and uniqueness. The flaws are part of them, and I wouldn't change them for the world.

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

Sorry, folks, no gift wrapping. It's not just that wrapping paper is wasteful and environmentally irresponsible, which it is. It's also that I pack these things with a single goal: that they arrive in one piece. Efficiency and efficacy aren't always pretty, but they are, well, efficient and efficacious.

Care instructions

All my pottery is food and microwave safe. Smaller pots can go in the dishwasher; I recommend cleaning the larger pots, like the fermenters, by hand.

With wood fired pots, sometimes you get "scummy" surfaces that emerge. Rub them with a little coconut oil and you'll be much happier.
