    Overall pleasant process. Would've liked the stamping to be more defined.

    This purchase was a delightful one from start to finish. An initial enquiry brought about a delightful conversation and could not be happier with my handmade Quaich. It’s beautiful and feels very nice to hold. Brought it as a gift and Robb kindly included a wee surprise for me. Very fast personal response and delivery. Highly recommend this wee bit of the highlands made with love ❤️

    I have ordered 4 different items from Robb and they are ALL amazing! This utensil holder was made custom for me as well as a BEAUTIFUL trivet (my favorite thing in my kitchen), a spoon rest and a incense holder! He has amazing talent and I look forward to getting more stuff from him for the rest of my house in the future! THANK YOU Robb!!

Frequently asked questions
What materials do you use?

The clay used for all hand-built and wheel-thrown works is stoneware produced by Armadillo Clay & Supply located in Austin Texas. The clay used for cast pieces is Amaco #1 Porcelain Slip. All ceramic works are high temperature fired (Cone 5).

Can I use your cups and bowls the drink or eat from?

Yes. All glazes used are lead-free. The glazes used on functional pieces, which may be used for food or beverages, are commercially manufactured food-safe glazes.

Why does it take so long for a custom order?

Ceramic works go through many stages during the creation process. After making, all works must completely dry before the first firing; this can take as long as a week. Then there are the firing and glazing stages. All works are fired at least twice which requires 24 hours each time. Glazing sometimes requires several steps or layers, each of which must dry prior to moving on to the next.
