IN LOVE, I've been eyeing the crow mugs and jugs for a while, so glad I took the plunge to get one. Larger than I expected (not complaining at all, I'm too lazy to keep re-pouring my pot), beautiful sgraffito work, and over all amazing texture and feel in my hand. Definitely wish to buy again in the future when I am able. (Completely forgot to review this initially since the review date came after it arrived ha)

About

Fine Handmade Ceramics in rural Kentucky

Silver Run Ceramics are produced by myself (Michelle Lyn Strader) and my partner Frederick Bartolovic. Together we create a collaborative line of functional ceramic ware on our small farm in the Appalachian foothills of Eastern Kentucky.

Many of the happenings on the farm inspire the imagery and narratives seen in our work. The farm is a place of wonder and perpetual work. There is a rhythmic balance to creating artwork, tending our large garden, and caring for our animals. The farm is currently home to two house cats, one German Shepherd, five chickens, Dante the goat, and Dusty the horse.

Frederick and I each have our individual artistic practices, yet together we put forth our unique strengths into collaborative works. Our contemporary forms are highly functional and versatile, embellished with primitive and sometimes mythical imagery depicting animals and nature. Composing allegorical motifs with decorative symbolism, each piece is thoughtfully conceived and a one of a kind piece of art.

Silver Run Ceramics are made entirely by hand and can be enjoyed for everyday use or special occasions. Thoughtful collectors need not look further, our work serves as both functional piece and beautiful object.

Frequently asked questions

Can I put my piece in the dishwasher or microwave?

YES! Our ceramics are made to be used in your everyday life. They are very durable and completely microwave and dishwasher safe.

Occasionally, some of our sculptural pieces have gold luster accents, in which case the piece should only be washed by hand and never placed in the microwave (gold luster IS a metal and will react when microwaved). In this case, special care instructions will be outlined in the listing of the item.

Do you ship to Canada or the UK?

At this time, I only offer domestic (US) shipping.

The item I ordered is smaller/larger/not what I expected.

I always strive to be as transparent as possible when presenting work online. I understand it can be difficult to judge a piece of artwork using a photo alone, so I do include measurements and (when applicable) holding capacity in the listing of each item. Please read the listing carefully before making your purchase.

Some items (like the wolf incense holders) are released in small batches in the same color and theme (i.e. white wolf with crescent moon) in which case the wolf you receive may not be the exact wolf pictured in the listing. Please understand these are handmade items and there will be some natural variation in each piece.

If you are unhappy with an item, please message me and I will be happy to help resolve your issue.

I had an item in my cart, when I tried to checkout it disappeared! Where did it go?

This has been a common problem for many on the day of a busy sale.

If an item is in your cart, Etsy will not hold it for you while you add your payment information. You will only be able to claim the item once you have paid.
Please understand that I have no control over this issue. I understand it can be frustrating. Know that you can improve your chances of taking home your favorite piece by being prepared. You will have an advantage if you are able to save your payment/shipping information to your Etsy profile before the day of the sale.

You are all sold out! Do you have any more? When will you restock again?

Typically on the day of a sale I have listed everything I have available at that time, so once I am sold out that's it.

I try to update the Etsy shop at least once per month. During the summer months updates may be a little more infrequent due to juggling a busy art fair/craft fair schedule.

If you would like to be in touch regarding shop updates, please follow me on Instagram (@MichelleLynStrader) or sign up for our newsletter:

Could you set aside a piece for me?

Please understand that I am unable to set aside work. I want to keep things as fair as possible for everyone involved. Thank you for understanding :)

Custom and personalized orders

Currently due to the busy lineup of shows for summer 2017, we are postponing all custom orders.

I ordered a match striker and it doesn't seem to be working! What am I doing wrong?

As outlined in the product listing, you will need "strike anywhere" matches to use with your match striker. You can buy "strike anywhere" matches just about everywhere, from the grocery store to the hardware store. They are also available on Amazon.
