About

For the Love of Clay and Maps (and buildings)

I fell in love with wheel throwing when I was 15 years old. In college, I studied art and architectural history, as well as cultural anthropology and archaeology. During those years, I rarely had time for a sustained studio practice.

After college I moved to St. Louis and became an active member in the Craft Alliance community. I rekindled my love of clay, took classes, met mentors, and began teaching ceramics to children and adults. I began putting my geographic, architectural and cartographic knowledge to use in my own work, and thus, Place Value Pottery was born.

I'm a mom of two little boys who keep me extremely busy these days, but I'm still finding time to sneak into the studio here and there.

Payment
I accept payments through paypal, and will ship items once that payment has been processed.

I will ship USPS Priority Mail.

I will use recycled and reused shipping materials whenever possible. This usually means boxes from restaurant suppliers and wine distributors, hand-me-down bubble wrap, and LOTS of newspaper.

Personal deliveries to anyone in the St. Louis Metro Area!
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns and refunds will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Do know that I put a lot of care into shipping and handling, but should the unexpected disaster occur, I will of course be willing to negotiate a solution.
Additional policies and FAQs
I would LOVE to create a custom piece for you.

If you want your favorite city/state/country/geographical occurrence on a bowl/plate/mug simply contact me and we'll talk!

Do know that custom orders can take 4-6 weeks to complete, as I am at the mercy of a community studio with an irregular kiln firing schedule.
