These three little birds are exactly as they appear in the photo-- beautifully handmade, their gold paint bright and intact, and properly fitted with a secure, closed metal loop for hanging on the wall (or wherever you like). They will make the perfect gift for my artist aunt, though I must say I'm very tempted to keep them! Great packaging and shipping (which was right within the expected time even though crossing oceans from Europe to USA), and friendly, helpful and timely convo responses from the artist/shop owner. Highly recommended!

These are absolutely stunning. Elizabeth made 12 for me in various sizes and together we worked out how to arrange them. They have just arrived and are really spectacular now they are up. I am so delighted with them that I have moved the furniture so I can sit and stare at them.

About

.

Hi - I'm Elizabeth, and I love clay. Any clay is great fun, but I have become very picky about the type of clay I use for my pottery and art. In my shop, you will find ceramic art, handmade from pure white, slightly translucent English porcelain that is incredibly tough, as well as being fine, delicate and fragile at the same time. Or you'll find creamy stoneware ceramics with just the right amount of texture: durable, tactile, fresh and warm in colour.
My materials are more expensive than many, but they give exquisite, jewel-like qualities or textures that you just won't find with any-old-clay.

Each of my ceramic designs is carefully hand-crafted in my British studio, glazed when appropriate with the utmost care, then fired until it glows red-hot, including a super-hot stoneware firing. This ensures that every piece is built to last a lifetime, even if it looks really delicate.

Colour is added to bowls with glazes, applied with care by hand using traditional techniques in a modern way, and occasionally juxtaposed with unexpected materials like recycled glass.

A little about me and my inspiration...

My background is in interior design and fine art, so good design has always been important to me. What inspires me? Of course there are many answers to that question, from natural objects to man-made structures, historical design to contemporary art, but my main inspiration comes from people, their needs, and ideas of love and gift giving. For example, I first worked with crochet to make a present for my Mum using crochet belonging to her mother.

My designs generally grow and flow out of ideas that start life as gifts for family, friends and loved ones. I try to mix frivolous, decorative ideas with functional aspects to make art or pieces that are both useful and a treat. I hope that in this way I can make the objects we surround ourselves with truly special and original.

Shop policies

Last updated on May 2, 2016
Hello - welcome to my shop policy page. Thank you for taking the time to read the small print! I hope the following info will answer most questions, but if there's anything I missed, please get in touch and I'll be happy to answer any questions.

The majority of pieces in my shop are hand built from ceramic, and although two items may be similar, no two will ever be absolutely identical. This is because each and every one of my ceramic items is made by hand, decorated by hand and glazed by hand. Please allow for very slight variation and batch differences between your order and the image, because sometimes I recreate multiples of the same design. However, please be assured that nothing leaves the studio unless I am completely satisfied that it is of the high standard and quality one would expect it to be, and that the image of the piece you bought is sufficiently similar as to not disappoint you when you open the box.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
There are two ways to pay.
1. via Paypal. This means that you can use any major credit card, without signing up for a paypal account if you don't want to. If you would like further information about this, there is a handy article explaining the process here -

http://www.etsy.com/storque/how-to/how-to-pay-with-a-credit-card-and-create-a-paypal-account-746/

2. via etsy's direct checkout, which means you may use any major credit or debit card.
Shipping
I usually ship items within three working days of receipt of payment, but please check my shop announcement, as any temporary delays or our holiday and vacation closures will be stated there. If the item you ordered states MADE TO ORDER in the title, then it will have a longer delivery date which will be stated. Please let me know if you need anything clarifying regarding that.
I will ship items worldwide using Royal Mail airmail, which usually takes approx 7 working days, but can take longer at busy times. If you would like additional insurance or tracking, please contact me and I will send you a quote.

ALL INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:

In addition to standard airmail, which takes approx 7 working days, the following is available:
If you would prefer Airsure delivery, which is available to most destinations, please contact me. This provides 6 stage tracking, and priority handling, and is available at a surcharge of $10 per shipment.

WORLDWIDE CUSTOMERS - in most destinations, you should usually expect to receive items within seven working days. Please note, I cannot take responsibility for the postal service. At busy times, items may take longer, so please allow extra time if possible - delivery times cannot be guaranteed. Items are not considered lost in the mail until a month has passed. FYI, your order will begin its journey with the Royal Mail, which is the UK's postal system. The Royal Mail will deliver that to your country, at which point it will have to clear customs, and then will be passed over to your country's postal service. If your order is delayed in the post, we recommend in the first instance that where possible, you check with your local postal service's depot or post office.

MEXICAN CUSTOMERS - With regret we must announce that we have recently had some delays with Mexico's postal system. You should allow extra time for your parcel to arrive. We will not consider an item lost when it is being delivered to Mexico until at least six - eight weeks after dispatch. Items have been arriving, but sometimes considerably later than we would expect elsewhere in the world, and so as we cannot control this delay, we must ask for your patience and that you allow extra time. Sincere apologies for this, but we hope you will understand that this is something over which we have no control.

RUSSIAN CUSTOMERS - Due to problems with parcels going missing on their way to Russia, we regret that we can no longer ship to you using our regular post methods. We can only ship using DHL or similar, at your expense, which will be added to your shipping charge in addition to your order after you place your order, and the costs can be expensive. We ask that you contact us directly before placing your order so that we can quote for you before your purchase. We are really sorry for any inconvenience and ask for your understanding.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UK CUSTOMERS you should usually receive items within three - four working days of order. I send by first or second class post or recorded delivery within the UK. We have added second class delivery as an option due to price increases by Royal Mail. If you need something quickly, please get in touch - we can usually work something out!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ALL CUSTOMERS, please note, if you want extra services, such as signed for delivery or tracking, I can provide this at a surcharge.
Very occasionally, items are delayed or lost in the post. This is something over which we can't control, and I ask that you please wait for one month after dispatch to allow time for the item to arrive. However, as previously stated, the vast majority of items arrive within seven working days of purchase :) Of those that are delayed, it is extremely rare for them not to arrive at all. If you feel your shipment is late, please check first with your local postal depot, neighbours and members of your household that may have taken delivery.

Please note: Any customs charges or local taxes are the responsibility of the customer.
I try to make packaging as lovely as possible, because a lovely parcel is a pleasure to open! However, I take extremely seriously the fact that most of my items are ceramic, and wrapping is first and foremost to protect the item. I want you to receive your item in one piece, and do my utmost to ensure that it does by wrapping my work well. I am also concerned about environmental issues, so where possible I use recycled packaging.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be happy with your purchase, and hope that you love it! If you don't, please return it to me, undamaged, in the same packaging, within ten days of receipt and I will refund or exchange it for another item of the same value. Please note - Shipping costs are to be paid by the customer. If we are charged any import duties by UK customs when the goods are returned, these costs will be deducted from your refund. We are charged these where you state on your customs form the name of the goods and value. Please mark any returns coming from abroad with RETURNING MERCHANDISE FOR REFUND on your customs form.
The only items I cannot accept as a return are special orders that have been made specifically for you and wholesale orders.
If the item is damaged or faulty, you must let me know immediately and I will happily exchange it as soon as I receive your return. Please note, you must inform me of any breakage within 3 days of receipt to qualify for a replacement.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love making custom orders.
If there's something you like in my sold orders that is out of stock, or you would like a custom order, please get in touch. Custom orders usually take approx 4 weeks after receipt of payment.

None of my items are intended for use as toys.

In the case of wall art, we cannot be responsible for these pieces once they leave us. It is important that you use fixings that are suitable for your wall, and that you take care when installing the work to ensure that it is suitably and securely fixed. In high traffic or vibration areas, or where children are present, we recommend taking extra care, and in addition to your hardware you may wish to add a touch of silicone sealant or hot glue if appropriate to the back of the work to ensure stability if this is appropriate for your wall and situation.

Please let me know if the item is to be given as a gift - I can enclose a free of charge gift tag card if you would like.
Gift wrapping can usually be arranged, please message me if you need this service. There may be a small charge for your requirements.
