StudioByTheForest's Shop Announcement

My shop will closed for vacation October 1 through the 20th.
All of my work is hand created and not made from molds. It can not be mass produced or made any quicker than the time allotted in the description. Time allotted is MINIMUM time, it could possibly take longer for anything custom or made to order. Thank you for understanding and for taking the time to read this. ;)

ALL Made to Order items take a minimum of 2 weeks to complete, this busy time of year may be closer to 3 weeks. Please order allowing time for the item to be created. My shipping days are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. If your scheduled ship day falls on a Tuesday or Thursday it will ship on the next business day. Orders that are due to ship on a holiday will be delayed by at least one day.

All of my rustic little creations are made piece by piece by myself in my home studio. Every single piece is an original and will have it's own unique character. I gravitate towards using earthy glazes and clays and strive to keep nature very much at the forefront of my work.

As many of my items are Made to Order and customizable, PLEASE ALLOW AT LEAST 14 BUSINESS days from placement of the order for the item to be created, depending on my current work load this could be extended. Ceramic items require time to dry and lengthy firing cycles before they are completed. Custom or personalized pieces may take longer than 2 weeks days depending on difficulty. Delays in communication or failure to respond to messages will result in delayed completion of order. If you have ordered a Made to Order item, please realize that there may be slight variations which are the hallmark of a handmade item. Each piece is created individually and though I may use the same clays and glazes slight differences in coloring between firings may occur.

In the event that any of the original materials become unavailable, substitutions will be made with every attempt to keep this item as close to the original as possible. I do not use molds for these items so each is a unique piece that may have it's own character and expression, the signature of a hand sculpted piece. If a photo of the finished piece is desired before shipping, this is possible but may delay the order beyond the scheduled shipment date. In purchasing a made to order listing you are purchasing a theme made in similar colors, materials and techniques, EXACT expressions of creatures are impossible to perfectly duplicate.

I ship Priority Mail for all domestic purchases which means the item SHOULD arrive within 2-3 days of shipping date, but this is not guaranteed. I use First Class mail for jewelry items which is usually about 5-7 days to arrive depending on how far it needs to travel. I can offer an upgrade to Priority as needed for an additional fee. Items are packed carefully in bubble wrap and white tissue.

For international buyers, the prices listed are for First Class International, the shipment times vary from location to location, USUALLY arriving within 2 weeks but may take as long as 4 weeks depending how long it takes to get through customs. I can offer a shipping upgrade to Priority but it may cost as much as 3 times the First Class rate.

Ready to ship items will ship Monday, Wednesday, or Friday after purchase unless they are purchased with a Made to Order listing.
