About

Moonshine Jug Pottery

Moonshine Jug Pottery was began in 2004 with a very simple purpose: to make attractive and functional ceramics that were each unique and reflected our own aesthetic. This has grown to mean pots that reflect our own sense of humor, as much of our current pots have a whimsical or satirical quality.

I owe much inspiration to the Anna Pottery of Illinois and to The Mad Potter of Biloxi, George Ohr. Both these potteries made commemorative flasks and jugs that commented satirically on events of the day from prohibition to the presidential election of 1876. Their work could range from lighthearted to sinister, something we rarely think of in functional ceramics.

My partner, Ann, has long offered me encouragement and valuable insight as well as the occasional elbow grease. We make it a point to give back to our community. Over eight years we have taken part in fundraising for the Food Pantry, HIV awareness, and The Daily Bread Soup Kitchen.

Our customers have come as far afield as Australia, Dublin, Ireland and San Diego, CA. We are very proud of our 100% satisfaction rating on Etsy and work to ensure the customer is satisfied. We generally ship out USPS Priority within one business day and you can expect to receive your item within two to three days of shipping in the US.

  • Hugh Throwing

    Owner, Maker

    I am largely a self-trained potter, though a have a Masters in computer animation. I owe my skills to classes and local potters who have shared their knowledge. Over a decade into running a studio I continue to follow my creative muse.

  • Murphy the studio dog

    Inspiration

    Murphy was found at the Danville, IL animal shelter. He was in need of a home and we were in need of a dog. He has worked out better than we might have expected. He is the reason we do all this. Murphy also travels with me on most of my delivery runs

Thanks you for choosing MoonshineJug Pottery. Rest assured that your satisfaction is our objective. If you have any questions concerning an item you wish to purchase, please do not hesitate to contact us. We consider special orders of 6 or more items.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
All payments are made through credit card or PayPal and include shipping, tax as well as the items cost. I ship within two business days after notification of payment clearance. Items cannot be cancelled after shipping. Custom items are paid at time of order and cannot be canceled or refunded.
Shipping
Whenever possible I ship USPS Priority. This gives me the best balance between speed and cost as well as a tracking number. You will receive the tracking number when the item ships and most destinations in the Continental US are reached within two days. I list shipping costs for some destinations outside North America. Buyers not listed should contact me for shipping cost to your destination.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please inspect your package soon upon arrival and contact us should you have an issue. Retain all packing materials while we work with you to resolve any issues. Based on reason and evidence an item may be accepted for return up to 48 hours from delivery confirmation date. Cost of return shipping with tracking is the responsibility of the buyer.

I will issue a full refund of items damaged in shipping once the shipper has accepted liability. Damaged claims require a legible photo of the damaged item from the buyer.
Additional policies and FAQs
So you are requesting a Custom Item from MoonshineJug. I’ve put together this list of steps to help make the process as smooth and satisfying as possible. We’ve served dozens of satisfied customers over the years for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and volunteer appreciation. We would be glad to create just the right item for your event as well.

Have you familiarized yourself with items in our shop? What you see defines the range of size and color we can produce. Colors not found in the shop may require a delay if we need to find them from a commercial supplier.

Do you have a hard deadline? Remember it will take 2-3 days in transit within the continental USA, sometimes much longer to Canada.

Have you considered your budget for the item? A simple variation or personalization of an item already listed in the shop will cost less than a completely original design. You can generally purchase an entirely originally design for about twice the price of an off-the-shelf jug. Shipping is based on actual cost.

Once you have conveyed your idea to me I will make a simple mock-up and convo it to you. We may make a few adjustments at this point. Payment is expected at the point the mock-up is agreed upon. This is nonrefundable except in cases of breakage.

Please make all communications through the Etsy email process. It has an easy attachment for images and you can be assured that I will read your communique within 24 hours on weekdays. Only communications made through Etsy email can be used to seek a modification in the original contract.
