About

A Happy Mechanic Amidst a Sea of Artists

Say Your Piece! has evolved over time... seemingly always managing to morph into an enterprise that best fits the needs of our family (thank you, God :)

Briefly: In the beginning, it was Clayful Moments.... a purely local endeavor dedicated to capturing hand and footprints of infants and toddlers. Over time, preschools were added to the client list, and from there community art projects and fundraisers ensued. A friend taught me how to pour molds, and for awhile Clayful Moments also became a traveling "paint-your-own-ceramics" studio.... which completely wore me out!

So much of what I did was a celebration of the special times in peoples' lives.... and when I discovered Etsy, I realized that it was the perfect place to be able to untether those geographic constraints. Say Your Piece! as it exists today is devoted to creating pieces that SAY what our clients want to say. That expression comes in the form of shape, function, text, color and images.

Etsy is a gold mine of artisans, and maybe in another twenty years I will have earned that same title. For now, though, I am more of a mechanic. I am very good at what I do and take great pride in serving my clientele with a quality product and excellent service... and contributing in a small way to the celebration of life's most precious moments.

Frequently asked questions

What is the turnaround time on my order?

If you have purchased a listing that indicates that the item is "ready to ship", then we will have it packaged and shipped within two business days.

If you have purchased a made-to-order item (which is indicated in the listing item overview box in the upper right hand corner of the listing page) turnaround is either 2-3 weeks or 3-4 weeks. Larger wheel thrown pieces take additional time to dry, so the turnaround is slightly longer. We ALWAYS strive to ship earlier than scheduled, and If both fires go without issue, we will do so :)

Why does it take so long?

All of our made-to-order items are made from wet clay. They are thrown or hand rolled, cut, impressed, shaped and then dried thoroughly. Once dry, holes are drilled and edges are sanded and cleaned. Next they are fired, which is a 24 hour process from ramp up to cool down. Once complete, the pieces are then painted, glazed, and then fired again. Each firing load contains about 80 pieces... so when your order comes in, it has a lot of company! If all goes without issue, then we can ship a bit early. But if not, then we will use the remaining turnaround time to address any issues.

Returns/Exchanges

If you have ordered a customized item and we have made an error on that order, send a photo within 3 days of delivery and we will replace the item as quickly as possible at our expense or refund your purchase.

If you have purchased an item which can be put back into inventory and you would like to exchange it for another, simply contact us with your request. As long as we can re-list the item, we are happy to accommodate an exchange. In such a case, shipping expense is the responsibility of the buyer.

Paypal now charges a $.30 fee on refunds. In the event that Say Your Piece! is requested to initiate a refund within 24 hours of purchase AND that refund is needed through no fault of our own, this fee will passed on to the client.
