Announcement   Thanks for being here!
I love bright color, patterning and texture on my whimsical creations.
I make cheerful, handmade coffee mugs, stoneware kitchenware, fun serving sets, and fun sculptural art items.
All functional items are microwave and dishwasher-safe, and of course, lead-free.

Everything listed is made by me, myself, me, me only, and I.
Even when I should be sleeping:)

Most items listed are available in any pattern/combo seen within my site, most patterns/glazes are interchangeable, and new stock is always coming out of the kiln.

Please allow a firm two weeks for delivery, unless we've agreed otherwise through Etsy-hosted messages.
Any orders placed after Dec.12th will NOT make it by Christmas...but New Years presents are great, too! :)

Thanks for the love! ~~Alissa

About

Happy chief mud-slinger of my own clay empire

I have a B.F.A. from Northen Arizona University, where I had three amazing professors (Paula Rice, Ellen Tibbets and Don Bendel ).
Each was amazingly encouraging to me, especially the ladies.

Coming from a background (but not an upbringing) of ladies in the arts, I knew I wanted to take my art further as a career.

After having my fabulous son (who is now a college sophomore), I enrolled with Aurore Chabot, a much-admired clay sculptor/architect wizard at the University of Arizona in Tucson. SO worth it !

After my M.F.A. graduation, I taught at Portland Community College part-time, I sold at Portland Saturday Market, Lithia Artisans Market in Ashland, and managed Ashland Art Center Clay Studio full-time (each official job for five years- funny) !

I have learned that I best like working for myself, and making my own hours and deadlines (and, before a show deadline, always my very own timeline crisis. It's important to lose sleep to gain perspective).

I do own a gallery/studio/classroom where we have scheduled clay classes and I have had to learn the sometimes tricky art of maintaining business hours, but I am overwhelmingly grateful for the independence and autonomy this artist life affords me.

I love my job ! And I hope you love my creations.
Big smiles from the Oregon dunes,
Alissa :)

Returns and exchanges
Return Policy:

If your item arrives damaged please contact me immediately by sending a digital picture of the damaged piece to my contact link here and I will make and send you a replacement. If the item arrives and is not as described in the item description it can be returned for a refund or exchanged for something else within 5 days. There are no returns on custom items. In the case of all returns you will be responsible for return shipping charges. Please return in original package as to keep the pottery protected. Your money will be refunded once the piece safely arrives.
Payment
I accept Paypal and Etsy Direct Checkout Credit Card Processing. Payment must be received within 48 hours of purchase or order will be cancelled.
Shipping
Please provide a clear shipping address with your order.
For shipping within the US, I use USPS priority mail .

I do ship internationally-however, international shipping can get really pricey because of the weight of the ceramics.
I try to ship first class international whenever possible to keep the shipping costs down, but packages over 4 pounds must be shipped using international priority mail. It’s not my rule, it’s USPS!

International customers are responsible for all fees, taxes, and duties/custom charges associated with shipping to their respective countries. I am not responsible for breakage that occurs because of customs checks.

Be assured that your pottery will be packed very carefully and should arrive safely!

I do wholesale mugs...please inquire!:)

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Yes! I happily make them, but they have to be within my reasonable artistic parameters. So, not so much into a customized ash tray for Grandma or a doggie dish for Humphrey the wonder terrier, as I’d rather forward my own vision of clay art.

Gift wrapping and packaging

There is an additional gift wrapping listing for $5.
All gift wrapping from my shop is thematic free and at artists creative direction/discretion.

Wholesale availability

I do wholesale orders... please contact me to discuss further.
