Thank you for visiting my shop! I hope you enjoy the fruits of my labor as much as I enjoy laboring over them.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
For Original Artwork:

I do my utmost to properly represent all of my creations accurately in description and photography, but if you are truly unhappy with your purchase, simply contact me within 2 days of receiving the item to arrange a refund or exchange.

Ship the item back in its original condition and packaging, and I will refund the purchase price minus shipping and handling. If the item arrives broken, it is insured, so I will gladly send you a similar piece valued at the same price as your original purchase.

For Art Prints, Apparel and Accessory Items Featuring my Artwork:

There are currently no refunds or exchanges, but I will of course replace any damaged or defective products.

I want everyone who purchases artwork from my shop to be ecstatic about his or her item, because they all represent little pieces of my creative spirit.
Currently accepting payments through PayPal. Your order will be shipped within 2 days of the payment being received and cleared, excluding postal holidays. Many orders will have same day shipping.
Currently, items are shipped by the United States Post Office 2 Day Priority Mail. Every shipment of my handmade art includes insurance against damage while in transit.
Additional policies and FAQs
I'd like to mention the green side of BirkeloArt.

All packaging materials coming directly from me are either biodegradable, recycled, or reclaimed. I use packing peanuts made of cornstarch, which dissolve in water, and carefully tuck your handmade purchases into custom envelopes made of recycled material. Anything you receive from me that is NOT biodegradable (i.e. styrofoam or plastic) has been reclaimed from previous packaging.

Lastly, for every hour I run my home-made propane kiln, I donate $0.50 for carbon offsets at and take great care not to let ceramic materials ever go down the drain.

Hopefully, those of you who are and will become my loyal, valued customers approve of my small efforts to make this world a cleaner and more creative space to thrive in.
