About

Clay And Compassion.

My mom was a professional potter, so I've had my hands in clay since I was a little kid. I could earn a few dollars each week if I would knead clay for her, which led me to a degree in photography. But I never left clay completely.

When she was ill, I went home to be with her and found the clay again, for good.

I combined what I learned in photography school with my skills in clay and built a small business selling my art in photographs printed on clay objects. That work can be seen here: ImageTransfersOnClay.Etsy.com

I also have a more whimsical clay shop: AcmeArtCompany.Etsy.com

In the meantime, I learned to love animals and then to respect them as individuals with their own interests and not servants to our desires. Acme Humane is a clay shop dedicated to this philosophy. Please enjoy!

Thank you for your interest in my work. I am a mixed-media artist, raised by a potter and have a bachelor's degree in fine art from Penn State. Most of my work is hand-built, although I also use a potter's wheel. I make all of my own molds. I have no employees.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept Paypal as well as Etsy Direct Checkout (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover) and Etsy gift cards.
Shipping
Items are shipped right away, typically within one day of receiving your order. Items are shipped using recycled materials as much as possible. Please continue the cycle by donating shipping materials to your local shipper. It is the buyer's responsibility to ensure the correct shipping address is included with the order.
Refunds and Exchanges
I make a significant effort to write accurate and thorough descriptions, and to provide multiple views of each piece listed. However, if I have missed something, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Items are packed with great care. In the unlikely event a piece should arrive damaged, please contact me within 48 hours of receipt. Save the packing material for the insurance claim and email a photo of the damage or pack up the pieces to return to me. Once the claim has been processed, a refund will be issued. Custom orders are non-refundable.

Please be mindful the colors displayed on the computer screen may differ from the actual colors in the artwork. If you are unhappy with the piece and wish to return it, please communicate with me within 5 days of delivery. Pack it carefully in the original materials, insure the shipment for full value, and return it within 14 days. Return postage is not refundable. You will receive a refund less shipping expenses once the item has arrived safely. Returned items damaged in transit are only refundable once the insurance claim is processed.
Additional policies and FAQs
A note about the use and care of low-fire ceramic ware. I am primarily a hand-builder or sculptor. I use sturdy, reliable clays suited to hand-built pieces of a variety of thicknesses. Most of my work is decorative, although I occasionally enjoy the application of my ideas on functional wares. Low-fire ceramic clay is more porous, but is fully utilitarian and will last as long as high-fired ware when handled with proper care.

Although I run my pieces through the dishwasher often, hand-washing is recommended to extend the life of the ware. The same goes for the microwave: to avoid thermal shock, it is better to heat foods in a separate container and transfer before serving. Particularly with tiny prep-bowls, the microwave can over-heat foods quickly and unevenly and stress the pot.

With a bit of extra care low-fire ceramic ware is fully serviceable and will last a lifetime.
