Shop policies

Each piece in my shop is made on a potter’s wheel or hand built, or a combination of the two. I design and create all the forms, textures, and sgraffito. I use a variety of clay bodies and materials, which are fired to cone 018, 6 or 10, in an electric or gas kiln.

The glazes I choose are safe for food, dishwasher, microwave, and *oven. If there is an exception to this, I will note it in the specific listing. *If you wish to use a specific ceramic piece in an oven, you must place it in the cold oven and allow the ceramic piece to rise slowly in temperature along with the oven's. To avoid damage, do not place any cold stoneware/ceramics in a preheated oven.

I aim to realistically photograph and describe what I sell. Still, colors calibration may vary from screen-to-screen. Please thoroughly read a listing's details. I will gladly answer inquiries regarding an item's use, fit, color, etc. I enjoy my studio creations and hope that you will, too.
