About

Choosing happiness over a conventional career

After getting a bachelor's in English, getting married, and wondering just what the heck a girl who loves books, art, and theater is supposed to do besides work in a bank her whole life, I realized that the deep love for pottery I discovered in high school just wasn't going to go away. I also realized that working in retail or banking was not ever going to satisfy that creative fire.

So I looked up a place where I could take some pottery lessons, and never really looked back. Windfall Arts was born within a year of getting my hands back into clay. Selling my first little (frankly, terrible) works of art happened more quickly than I could have hoped, and I just kept making and making them, day in, day out. Needless to say, I improved.

I currently think of myself as a "learning professional" - that is, I'm still very focused on taking instruction and continuing my tactile education; though not apprenticed to any one artist, I have many who I admire and get to learn from by observing and taking classes.

Much of my creation is done in my home studio. Now that I'm a full-time mom, it is very helpful to have a space at home to create in! I do about 50/50 wheel-throwing and hand-building; in my shop you can usually tell the difference by whether something is smooth or textured (my handbuilt wares are usually stamped with lace, one technique I really love).

I'm happy to be here doing what I love.

This is a one-woman operation. I love my work and I do it carefully; I love it when you also love my work. I make each piece lovingly by hand, one at a time, so each piece is a completely individual work of art.

Payment
I accept Direct Checkout (credit card payments) and Paypal.
Shipping
Orders are shipped by USPS, usually Priority Mail but sometimes First Class at my discretion, within a week of purchase date.

I pack orders using new or gently used materials. I purchase and use eco-friendly packing peanuts that can be reused or composted.

Shipping prices are based on my experience shipping similar items within the continental U.S. *If you will be asking me to ship to Alaska or Hawaii, it's nice if you contact me first so I can give you a more specific estimate.*
Refunds and Exchanges
If you really aren't happy with your item, let me know--exchanges or returns are inconvenient but can be done. I will ask that you, the buyer, pay any extra postal costs which are incurred along the way.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do not currently accept custom orders. If you would like to buy my art, I would love for you to buy something that has already come from my hands, mind and heart. And if you like my work a lot but just haven't fallen in love yet, come back later and look again! Everything I make is individual and my work is constantly evolving.

I do not sell wholesale; my prices reflect what I need for my time and materials (not to mention my ideas and ability to execute them). Thank you for respecting an artist's right to earn a living.
