About

This is my attempt to make a living - doing what I love.

I started my business in about 2001 -- with a small shop in my barn -- but I live out in the middle of no-where. My most frequent visitors are all of the mice, spiders and other bugs -- that are always making my shop their new home. Now the shop is mainly for storage.

My work area -- ( to call it a studio would be a stretch ) - is down in the basement, and it is " not ready for prime time." Someday I hope to have it up where I could look out and see the beauty of the trees and pond.

I heard about ETSY from my grown children. I was so anxious to open my store.... But first - they had to teach me how to use a computer. What a challenge!

I am very happy to have found ETSY. My first sale was a piggy bank on Feb. 10, 2010, four days after I opened. I was so surprised ! ( - I love to make piggies). It is so rewarding when someone --close-by or very far away -- wants to purchase a piece of pottery that I have shaped with my own two hands. It makes me feel like a real potter!

I believe it's the journey that's important. Each day is a new adventure. I keep learning about clay and glazes and firing. And one day, I may even get the hang of this computer........ ( oops- better knock on wood - before something happens )

Thank you for looking,
Suzanne

    I am a left-handed potter , and I taught myself how to throw. My first wheel was made by my dad -- it was a 3 speed with a clutch and gear shift." Stock Photo" -- This photo is from about 1996 - I'm the one in the red jacket.

    Best Helper Ever -- With - Raku-pit Firing, Packing, And Especially At Shows

    This was my dad. A really great guy. He built my first wheel . He helped me at shows and all of the special firings, and with all of the packing. I miss him very much.

Welcome and thank you for stopping by.
Everything is made by hand---starting with a ball of clay, 98% of everything is thrown on the potters wheel -- in reverse - I'm left-handed.

If you don't see what you want --I do take special orders-
- some of my best selling items have started with a customer's special request!
-custom orders require a non-refundable deposit of 10% with a $10 minimum.

I hope to be listing new items every week ( the exception will be when I have multiple shows.)

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
Payment
I accept paypal for payment. Also direct checkout.

Ohio residents will be charged 6.5% sales tax.

Any questions -- please convo me.

Thank you, Suzanne
Shipping
I will aim for a Tuesday and Friday/or Saturday shipping schedule. ( Convo me if you need your purchase sooner and I will try to accommodate you if possible)

I Ship USPS Priority -- 1-3 days - inside the US *** If you want me to ship at the lower rate of - First Class -- please convo me PRIOR to purchase so we can discuss the possibility -- First Class Mail is only available for packages weighing less than 1 lb.

The posted shipping charge is an estimate - because it covers all 50 states -- excess shipping will be refunded (after a small packing chg.)
Priority now comes with up to $100 insurance -- and tracking - included.
I like to get extra insurance on items over $100 , and signature confirmation for items over $100.

*********************************************
After a package has tracked to your residence - I can no longer be responsible.
Please convo me - prior to purchase - if you want the extra service - signature confirmation - for an extra fee.

*******************************************************



***** Outside of the US *****

The posted shipping charge is an estimate -- and - it does not cover any taxes, tariffs or customs fees from your country. You may want to look into these charges before purchasing.

I usually ship first class - airmail. It is the most reasonable. (some insurance is available to selected countries for an extra fee -- no time estimate)
**** I have had good luck and fairly quick shipping with the first class so far--------

Priority is available for an extra fee- it comes with some insurance - and an estimated delivery time - and I believe a tracking number - convo me -- prior to purchase -- if this is what you want.

If the package is 4lbs. or more -- priority is the only option.

Please convo me if you want a closer shipping estimate. I'm sure that more information can result in a closer estimate.

Excess fees will be refunded - after a small packing charge-
Thank you.*****


***********************************************************************************
* Purchases can also be picked up here at my "physical" shop. If this is the case, shipping charges will be reimbursed -- if necessary.

* I try to reuse and recycle shipping materials whenever it is possible--
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not happy ---please write to me--I want you to be happy with your purchase-- and I will work with you to resolve any issues.
Additional policies and FAQs
I take custom orders-
Custom orders require a small non-refundable deposit of 10% with a $10 minimum.

I will give a discounted price for orders of larger quantities-

I can guarantee that each piece is made by hand by me, myself and I. Almost everything is thrown on the potters wheel--backwards-- since I throw left-handed. About 2% is hand-built by me.
I can also guarantee that nothing will be perfect -- I am not a machine ------- !

I can guarantee that there is no lead in the glazes that are used for functional pottery, or for most of the banks, or holiday items. ---If there is any lead it would only be on RAKU items -- and those are not for food ------
