Impressionistic Functional Pottery & Paintings

Fonthill, Canada

Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    Have been busy making and painting a series of new Planters, Vases and Teapots of various sizes, which I will be posting to my Etsy Shop over the next few weeks. I have also, just completed and shipped a number of commissioned pieces so if you see something in my SOLD file, that takes your fancy, please contact me and I can make you something similar. All my pieces are hand drawn and hand painted so no two will ever be exactly the same!

Impressionistic, Joyful, Vibrantly colored whimsical Faces and Designs adorn my Funky Functional Pottery and Paintings.
I try to incorporate the Shapes of my Pottery into One of a Kind Works of Art that will add a splash of color and whimsy to your homes and/or gifts.
I have turned a Hobby that I Love into a Business that I Love even more. I endeavor to pass this love onto my customers.

I take a" blank slate" of clay, canvas or paper and turn it into a fun, whimsical and usually functional piece of Art!

Returns and exchanges
I take Great Pride in Handcrafting my Ceramic Artwork (as well as Paintings and Prints) and I want you to be Pleased and Satisfied with your Purchases!
I package my shipments accordingly, usually double boxing and cushioning with bubble wrap.

If your item does arrive damaged, please contact me within 3 working days to discuss our options. I will replace the Broken Item or issue a Refund upon receiving proof of Damage. I will absorb the replacement shipping cost. PLEASE NOTE that because my Pottery is FRAGILE and I am basically Insuring myself against Breakage(the cost to insure against breakage through Fed Ex or UPS is prohibitive) my packages will be Larger than the Item Ordered, which is reflected in my SHIPPING COSTS.

If you are not happy with your Purchase FOR ANY OTHER REASON, please contact me within 3 working days of receiving your item. I will refund the Purchase Price, less any Etsy and Paypal Fees after it is sent back in it's Original Condition. The shipping cost is NOT refundable and the return shipping is the Buyer's responsibility. Custom Orders or Commissioned Pieces are NOT REFUNDABLE.
Payment
I accept payment by Etsy Direct Payment, Etsy Gift Cards, Paypal or Credit Card through Paypal or Etsy. Please note, you do not need a Paypal account to pay for your items through Paypal. You can choose the Paypal option during checkout. After you submit your order, click the "Pay Now" button, Scroll down and you will see the Option to Pay with a Credit or Debit Card WITHOUT having to sign up for a Paypal account.(Although an Account is pretty handy if you are doing any amount of online purchases)

Your Purchases will be shipped after confirmation of Payment has been received.

If payment is not received within 3 Days of your order, I will have to cancel the order.
Shipping
I ship my Parcels through Canada Post at the best rates Possible. Please Note: I do not intend to make money on my Estimated Shipping Prices(in fact I have many times underestimated), any overcharge exceeding $5.00, I will refund
back to my customer. I will also Refund Extra Shipping Charges for multiple Purchases Shipped together. I am Happy to quote prices for Faster services if they are required.

I ship promptly within 2 to 3 days of receiving payment (I live in the country and don't go to town every day) I will send you a confirmation email after your order has been shipped. I use Canada Post for all shipments, which can take up to two weeks for some destinations. Canada Post offers up to $100.00 insurance for loss and I will purchase that insurance. If you would prefer a faster shipping time or another carrier ie Fed Ex or UPS, please contact me for an additional shipping quote.

Shipping is my Biggest Challenge. I try to keep my prices as low as possible. Due to the high costs of fuel prices, shipping costs have increased substantially through Canada Post. I try to reuse strong shipping cartons, so although they may not be as pretty as I would like, I don't have to pay extra for them and I pass the savings onto my customers. I package my Ceramic Artwork extremely well to keep it safe, which does increase the size and thus the cost of my shipping.

Buyer is responsible for any Customs Fees/Taxes if they occur.

International Customers: Due to the Significant Variations in Shipping Costs to Countries other than Canada and USA , I will supply a quote of Shipping options after receiving Purchase Inquiries. I am sorry for the additional inconvenience that this my cause my customers!

PLEASE NOTE, for Custom Orders or a Replacement Item, I need to fill my Kiln with Pottery to make the Firings Cost effective and the Glazes Cure properly, so please allow up to 5 weeks for me to make and paint enough items. These Orders are a Priority with me and depending on when my last firing was, that time frame could be shorter.
