Announcement   Welcome to Second Chance Ceramics!
Most items in this shop are ready to ship, but if you have contacted me about making a special mug, just for you, then the next kiln will be late in August.
If you would like to have your order in that kiln, Please let me know! I will need to have the order details, and have either OK'd the order, or if it is a customized/personalized order, a special order listing needs to be created and purchased before the kiln. Items from that kiln will be finished and mailed out about a week later. This gives me time to find and adjust your images, make the decals, and put the decorated pottery in the kiln.
Thank you so much!

I recycle white porcelain and stoneware mugs by adding my own handmade decals, and firing them into the glaze at more than 1000 degrees F. They are food safe, can be put in the top rack of the dishwasher and are microwave safe.
****
Unless the item labeled "Made To Order", it is ready to ship, and I will mail it within 3 business days after purchase (but usually the next day). Made To Order or custom items usually take about 4 weeks to make and ship, though it could be shorter or longer. Please contact me for the current time frame.

Thank you so much for browsing through my shop! And always feel free to drop me a line through Etsy Convo's! And I am always happy to answer questions!

Item arrived quicky but, unfortunately, was damaged. Seller responded immediately and shipped replacement in a timely manner. It arrived in perfect condition. Great quality and value.

Antonia was kind enough to make this for me as a special order, because I instantly fell in love with the first one she sold when I saw it listed in her shop. The decals are wonderful and haven't faded at all yet, and the mug is the perfect size for a big cup of tea in the morning. Definitely a wonderful addition to my new studio!

About

Take a Dash of Pottery, add a splash of Ephemera, and Recycle it all together...

My craft is pottery (see my other shop at AntB.Etsy.Com). I also love collecting antique ephemera. When I found a way to combine the two, and recycle restaurant ware at the same time, I jumped in with both feet.

A couple years ago I was looking for ways to create more surface interest on my handmade pottery. A fellow potter taught me how to make my own iron oxide decals and I started experimenting with them.

It took a while to find glaze formulas and the right temperatures to fire the decals into the glaze.

I ruined a lot of pottery with my experiments, so a friend gave me some restaurant ware she had from an out-of-business coffee shop.

The decals worked beautifully on the white surface. Pretty soon I was selling the embellish porcelain restaurant pottery the same day I posted examples on my Flickr page. I decided to make this experiment a full fledged shop. And it has been great fun ever since! I have an excuse to collect even more ephemera, I get to buy lots of pottery, and I have fun combining the pictures to tell small stories with each piece.

Please check out my shop and let me know what you think! I am always happy to receive convos!
And you can also visit my other Etsy shops,
Antb.etsy.com where I sell pottery I make from wet clay, and then glaze and fire it, and
FortuneTellerShop.etsy.com, where I sell tasseomancy cups that I've made with diner ware mugs, saucers and decals.

    Daughters Snow, Jasmine and Grace all help with the shop. Snow (above) and Jasmine apply decals to the pottery with me, and they help load and unload the kiln, and package and mail out orders. We all do it all.

  • Grace Barry

    Shop Helper

    Gracie washes the pottery before we decorate them, puts packages in the mailing box on the porch for the mail carrier, and she cuts out and sticks on the stickers with a coupon code for return customers on the cards I send with each purchase.

  • Jasmine Barry

    Maker, Designer

    Daughter Jasmine works in the shop doing the packing, mailing, and decorating. You can tell her designs because they are exuberant and spontaneous. She also 'models' by holding the large pottery for me when my little photo area isn't big enough.
