About

Artistic Creations for Life's Celebrations.

I invite you to celebrate your next meal as an art-filled experience, toasting to the slow delight of “a fine palate.” Food, wine and art are central in my life. I love the texture of paints, the nuance of light that shimmers through the layers of paint as much as I love the pure flavors and textures of fresh, organic food.

Today, it seems that we are tempted to live without any of those things. We live fast and cheap. We eat mass produced foods from ugly, disposable plates. It has become my passion and profession to restore the art of a simple meal by offering hand painted ceramic and glass dinnerware to compliment every meal. Served on a pure white plate, painted with a simple leaf or flower, a humble supper becomes an extraordinary experience of line, light, color, flavor, aroma and textures.

A little background information:
As a student in Fine Art, I originally specialized in oil and canvas paintings. However, during an archeological trip to Sicily to explore ancient cave paintings, I found painted pottery sherds brought from over from the Greeks, and realized that the precise detail they achieved was created by painting rather than glazing.

The experience left me eager to seek out new mediums for my work, and ceramics and glass became my new canvas. Like the Greeks, I believe that the humble act of eating and drinking should be made as beautiful and sensual as possible. I help you elevate your meal to the next level by allowing you to serve your consciously prepared food and wine on platters and glasses of functional art.

The most rewarding part of working with everyday functional items is that so many more people can appreciate them. I like to think of myself as being a guest at dinner parties around the world.

Come to visit and you’ll find me painting in my studio on our farm in Chapel Hill, NC where we keep chickens, turkeys, a small orchard, year-round vegetable garden and lots of flowers and birds. My favorite time is spent with my capable husband who spoils me with his cooking and my baby boy who gives new definition to what love means.

Cheers to artful living everyday!
Mary Elizabeth

Payment
Payment is due at the time of purchase. If paying by e-check, shipments will not be shipped until the e-check clears. In the case of non-payment I will cancel the sale. I do not include printed receipts with any of my packages. The receipt is kept electronically online and can be accessed from your own computer whenever you wish.
Shipping
I ship to the address on file with Etsy. Please confirm your address at the time of check out. I am happy to ship items as gifts. I'm not able to gift wrap orders because I have to encase the glasses in protective packaging to ensure they arrive safely. I package with bubble wrap, packing peanuts, tissue paper and eco-friendly crinkle paper that's 100% biodegradable.

I'm happy to include a gift-card with your personal message. Simply let me know what you'd like the card to read in the "note to seller" section when you checkout.

I ship all orders Priority mail via USPS unless otherwise arranged. Tracking notices are emailed when the package ships so you can track your package online.

If you are in a rush please make me aware of your timeline when your order is placed. If you have ordered a custom piece that is being made specifically for you, please allow at least 2-3 weeks for production. More time may be needed depending on the season and your order. Please message me for details on production times. I'm happy to hear from you and usually response quickly.

SHIPPING - INTERNATIONAL ORDERS
• International shipments are shipped USPS Priority International. All customs duty fees and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer. Customs duties, taxes, VAT, brokerage fees, or tariffs could be applied to your package at the discretion of your local customs officers or post office. I do not have any control over customs and the packages they randomly inspect, and packages I ship are no more likely to be inspected than any other package.

• I do not mark international orders as "gift", and I do not undervalue the contents of the package on the customs form as that is against the law and I could face heavy fines up to $10,000. Please do not ask me to break the law.
Refunds and Exchanges
RETURNS
*****************
I want you to be happy with your hand-painted creations. If you are not satisfied with your purchase please contact me within 7 days of receiving it. I will refund your money upon return of the item in its original condition. I will pay for shipping both ways. And I'll do it happily. :-)

Sometimes accidents happen and in the rare case that your item arrives cracked or damaged--not to fear! I will send a free replacement, all shipping costs on me, so don't be shy about buying glass.
