On Etsy since 2009

Color and feelings with a healthy dose of nerd

From a confused teenager to a full time artist; My Etsy shop has seen the entire Journey! I opened my shop in 2009 with the hopes of making and selling jewelry made from hand painted wooden beads. At the time I was just as lost as any other 19 year old and Etsy was a totally different space back then. I had no idea what I was doing! But I loved it nonetheless and kept on learning.

While I was in college, I closed up my shop from 2010 - 2014 while figured out my major and direction. I knew I wanted to be creative and work for myself, but how does that translate into a bachelor's degree? After switching my major a bunch of times, I finally landed on ceramics. The clay and the ceramics community captured my heart right away. I started listing the occasional batch of pots here in between indie markets and exams.

After graduating in 2015, I started taking this much more seriously as I knew this is what I wanted to do. Since my friend's kiln wasn't always accessible, I would use watercolor and illustrations as a creative outlet in between the many periods of waiting in the ceramics process.

I slowly started to gain traction, both here and on instagram. Once I sold out of my rainbow cloud mugs and my dice mugs after numerous shop updates, I knew it was time to get my own digs. That brings us to today! I still carry a small collection of goods here on Etsy, but most of my pottery is now on averiverastudio.com. Throughout all of the iterations of my art, it has always been about color and feelings with a healthy dose of nerd.

Frequently asked questions

Made to Order/ Pre order Items

For any made to order items, the turn around time is 4 to 6 weeks. This is about how long it takes for me to fill my kiln; which holds between 40 to 70 pots.

I strive to keep my studio practice as eco friendly as possible, so I only fire the kiln when it is full to maximize my energy use. Depending on when you order within the cycle, I may be able to get your order to you sooner than the typical 4 to 6 week turnaround time.

Care instructions

Any pot with luster (mother of pearl, gold, and white gold) is hand wash only and not safe for microwave. The gold and white gold used on pottery is real 22K gold and will spark in the microwave as it is real metal.

All other mugs without luster are safe for microwave and dishwasher; handwashing is recommended especially for those mugs with lots of sculpture bits.

Gift wrapping and packaging

For most items, I double box. The pot is wrapped in tissue paper and a small amount of bubble wrap, then placed in a double walled box. Then that box is placed in a larger box with eco friendly, dissolvable packing peanuts. I also reuse a combination of shipping materials I receive in the mail if they are clean. as ceramics are breakable, I take great care in how I package my work; I find double boxing is the best protection for insuring a safe arrival to it's new home.
