Announcement    🌻 Welcome to BlueRoomPottery! 🏺We hope you find something you like.

Everything in our store is either wheel-thrown and/or hand crafted by me one at a time.

🏺PLEASE read descriptions of items. Etsy has changed the format so that to see the entire description you may need to click on the "Learn MORE about this item" under "Description" button.

🏺If you don't see something you are looking for, you may check at www.blueroompottery.com

🏺~My ceramic yarn bowls are Odorless and Clean, unlike wood yarn bowls of 3rd world origin, varnished with questionable and unknown quality varnishes, that seep into the yarn stored in them, and eventually your skin. When you spend so many hours working on your beautiful projects, you deserve the best quality tools and I make sure that I make one for you :)
My yarn bowls that are also wheel-thrown are substantial and designed to be used for a long time by knitters like myself.

🏺~ALL the photos in our store are STOCK PHOTOS. The items you will be receiving will not be the exact pieces in the photos but very very close to them, due to their handmade nature, and just as beautiful! And the truth of the matter is, that my pieces are always way better in person than in photos. (I am a waaay better potter than photographer) :-)

🏺~Please leave your reviews from your home computer, since there is a the glitch in the Etsy mobile phone review system and sometimes 5 stars turn to 4.

Be sure to check back for many new goodies coming out of our kiln :)

🏺~YOU CAN CONTACT US DURING REGULAR BUSINESS HOURS through the Etsy conversations system, by clicking "Ask a question" or "Contact Shop Owner" under any of our listings.

🏺☕️🏺 WE ARE CLOSED ON WEEKENDS & HOLIDAYS 🏺☕️🏺
If you contact us during these times the response will be on the next business day

Most of the day we are away from the computer, with hands full of clay creating the pottery, glazing, filling / emptying kilns, packing, shipping, cleaning, organizing, and finally after business hours taking care of our family.
Please allow a little time until your question is answered.

We love these shops on ETSY:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/loopinloop for beautiful handmade supplies for all your DIY jewelry or other designs,
and
a One of A Kind jewelry shop here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/blueroombijoux

Stay safe and healthy,
Thank you so much,
BlueRoomPottery

On Etsy since 2009

Clay --Our lives, Our story

Welcome to our pottery shop. Our name BlueRoomPottery comes from a dear customer of some time ago who had a beautiful gallery on the Greek island Skiathos. He had dedicated one of the rooms to my blue ceramics and he called it the "BlueRoom".

All the work you see in BlueRoomPottery is made ONLY by MY two hands in my studio in St. Paul, Minnesota. I either throw my pieces on the potter's wheel or model and cast them by hand and decorate and glaze them all by myself with my own glazes.

I LOVE my work and every piece that I make, even if it is a production piece that I repeat, is always fresh and new to me. I am never tired of sitting on my wheel to make beautiful pieces that a customer will enjoy and use for many years. It is like a calm meditation that fills me with energy.

A huge "THANK YOU" to ETSY Admin for featuring my work in the June 4th, 2010 "This Handmade Life" http://www.etsy.com/storque/handmade-life/eye-of-the-artist-the-deep-blue-8665

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

We do not offer gift wrapping at this point. We pack with a lot of bubble wrap and take every precaution so that the items arrive safe and in one piece. This unfortunately doesn't leave us much room for gift wrapping.

However we can include a short message from you to the recipient. Just let us know in the "message to seller" during checkout.

Sizing & glaze/color details

PLEASE READ DESCRIPTIONS OF THE LISTING.

All sizes listed are approximate due to the handmade nature of Marietta's work and there may be slight variations between the piece in the photo and the one you are purchasing.

If you order a "Made to Order" item, you accept that the item you will receive may not be exactly the same as the photographs in the listing, and that sometimes there may be variations of the glaze colors.
This is due to firing conditions, which are beyond our control.
This may happen especially with the runny highlight glazes which are very sensitive to temperature in the kiln.

What do I do if I need an item by a specific date?

Please read the description of the listing you are interested in.

If it is a "Made to Order" piece, check the estimated shipping dates (we try to keep those updated), and let us know in the "message to seller" during checkout about any deadlines. This way we can let you know if it is possible.

Thank you :)

Do you accept credit / debit cards?

All payments are handled by ETSY and you can use all payments that ETSY accepts.
We have no control over your payment and we can't see any of the details.

If I return an item I bought from your shop will I get a refund?

Yes, if you return the item within the stated time frames above, you will receive a refund, if the item is returned in resalable condition.

However, you will only be refunded the value of the item and not the shipping charges paid to ship it to you.

You are also responsible for the cost of mailing it back to us.

What if my order is damaged in transit?

Although we pack very well to avoid damage, the USPS does still sometimes break pieces in transit. If this happens, don't worry! We always ship with insurance.

How do I file a damage claim?

If your order arrives damaged just let us know right away (no more than 3 days after receipt). Take a photo of the damaged piece and packing material and DO NOT throw the damaged item and packing material away. Send the photos to us so we can file a damage claim.

Your damaged item will be replaced/refunded AFTER the insurance claim is paid. Unfortunately we cannot replace/refund a damaged item until then. You will need to cooperate with the insurance investigation, and reply to any inquiries from the insurance company in a timely fashion. After the claim is paid/settled you can dispose of the broken item and packing material as you see fit. NO NEED to mail them back to us.

I entered the wrong shipping address, can I change it?

We ship to the address you entered during checkout.

If you entered the wrong address, please message us asap via the ETSY conversation system.
As a courtesy, we can usually make the address change if you let us know in time, but cannot guarantee it.

The best way to insure your order ships to the correct address is to enter it during checkout.
If a package is returned because you entered the wrong address you will have to repay shipping charges for us to re-ship it.

Wholesale availability

Yes, we do offer wholesale to qualified resellers.
If you are interested in wholesale pricing, please send us your full business contact address (including e-mail & phone number) and business tax ID, and we'll get back to you.
