I love these! Super cute. Was not shipped right away and did not get in the time frame that Etsy did say it would be here. But it being the holidays, when does something get shipped on time? I recommend this item and this store!

About

Finding Clay

When clay and I met, it was love at first touch. My very first pieces were crafted at the Burbank Art Center, Burbank, C.A. I loved throwing so much that before long, I had more pots than I knew what to do with. To clear some space, I participated in a couple of local group sales. Then I discovered Etsy. I felt really intimidated when I first opened my shop in 2007. By that time I desperately wanted ceramics to become my career, and over the next year, I spent all my free time making and selling as much pottery as I could. In 2008 I did it! Alina Hayes Ceramics became my official full-time job.

What can I say? Ceramics is what I love to do.
I pour my heart and soul into each and every piece I make from start to finish. It never gets tiresome or boring. I always dream up new ideas and experiment with new techniques and glazes. Even as I write this, I can feel my face light up.
My work is always evolving, creating an ever-changing look in my shop. I love fashion, and often times have seasonal trends sneak into my pottery.

I enjoy working with white stoneware and porcelain that I glaze and fire in an electric kiln to 2240 degrees F. I make most of my glazes in house, with only a couple that I purchase from a ceramic supplier.

    I started making ceramics in 2006, after my husband and I moved to Los Angeles. Four years ago, I was lucky enough to quit my day job and start creating pottery in my small messy studio full-time. We currently reside in West Hills with our son Finn.

Customer satisfaction is very important to me, and I want my customers to feel secure when shopping with me. Returns or exchanges can be made within two weeks from receipt of your purchase. A refund will be issued once the item has been returned in it's original condition. Please note that buyer is responsible for all shipping involved in returns/exchanges. Since most of my pottery is one of a kind items, if you're interested in an exchange, I will make an exchange for another item of another or equal value.
I like to be accessible to my buyers. Please let me know if any issue should arise and we will work out a fair resolution for everyone envolved :)
