Pottery with soul

Handmade pottery differs from mass-produced pottery in similar ways that a home-cooked meal differs from a frozen entree out of the grocery store freezer.

It is lovingly made in a manner that takes more time, has ingredients in it that the creator has chosen with care, and offers qualities that could never be achieved with something mass-produced. Sometimes it doesn't look as polished or perfect as a manufactured item, but it certainly has soul, and the imperfections give the pieces a certain charm and character.

Most handmade pottery is one-of-a-kind since each piece is made individually, one at a time. It has an inviting feel to it that makes you want to touch it, hold it, and enjoy using it.

Because it was lovingly made by an individual, it has a positive energy that flows through to the person who chooses it for themselves or another.

It also offers qualities that manufactured pottery cannot hope to achieve, such as being created for a very limited use purpose or being personalized with a name, message or a particular size, shape, color, texture or design.

Handmade pottery is generally more ecologically friendly than wares that come from far away places, most often overseas, and the individual craftsperson is generally more likely to recycle and reuse materials in the creation of handmade pottery. No waste going to landfills; no chemicals and toxic materials being released into the environment.

I hope you enjoy browsing my shop and learning more about handmade pottery.

Shop policies

Hi! I'm so glad you found my shop among all the wonderful artists on Etsy.

When you purchase my handmade pottery, you can be assured that I have created it to the highest standards of safety while retaining the creative, whimsical touch for which my work is known. My glazes are food safe and can be used in the oven, microwave or dishwasher unless the description says otherwise. However, as with any handmade pottery, it will retain its fresh good looks longer with handwashing and limited microwave use. I accept custom orders and will sell wholesale to galleries/shops....please contact me for information.

Returns and exchange details
I want you to be very happy with your purchase from me. But sometimes mistakes happen, and I'm not perfect all the time :-)

If you don't like it or there is a problem, I will refund your money, replace the item, or even make you a new one. Please let me know if there is a problem within a week of delivery. And, please, before leaving a bad review of my shop or your purchase, please give me a chance to make things right.

If you decide to return something simply because you don't like it or have changed your mind, but there was no damage from shipping or a defect, I will refund your money less the cost of shipping once it is returned to me in good shape. This restocking fee generally comes to about 20% of the purchase price.

Please know that you are responsible for any taxes or duties or customs fees that may be charged on your purchase. The seller and/or etsy cannot know the rules of every country and state.

***A Word About COLOR**** I try very hard to accurately represent my product through photographs and description. I want you to love your pottery and come back for more! A lot of people don't realize that the color of the image can vary widely from one computer monitor to another. What looks lavender on one computer can be gray on another computer etc. If the exact color of the item is very important to you and you are unable to determine the shade through my description, please send me a Convo and I'll give you as much detail about the color as I can.
I'm happy to accept payment via PayPal, money order, check or credit card. If you wish to bypass PayPal and just call me with your credit card number, I'm happy to accept that, too. The number is 970-846-9349. When you check out on Etsy, just click the 'Other' button for payment and call me with your credit card information.

If you see something that you want but won't have the money until later, I am happy to place an item on hold for one week and will list the item as Reserved for you. If you wish to buy an item over time, that's ok, too. I will accept a 20% deposit on the item and allow you to make payments over time as long as the item is paid in full within two months. If it is not paid in full within 60 days, you will forfeit your deposit since I have lost the opportunity to sell that item while it was on hold. For other special arrangements, please contact me.
I generally ship within 1-3 days of receiving payment, and for most items I use UPS Ground or USPS Priority Mail. I use lots of bubble wrap, foam and peanuts for the protection of your pottery.

If an order is returned to me or if we cancel an order because of a defect in the pottery or it wasn't as described in the listing, I will refund your entire payment. If it is returned because you have changed your mind or don't like a color, size, shape, etc., I will refund the purchase price of the items upon their return but not shipping charges either way.

If something breaks during shipping, I will file a claim with the shipper and refund your money or replace the broken item as long as you document the breakage with photos of the broken pottery, photos of the packing materials I used, and photos of any damage to the outside of the box. The shippers generally require this documentation before paying the claim.

On International orders, I've tried my best to estimate the shipping costs. However, if I have overestimated it significantly, I will refund the difference to you. Because USPS is our only viable option for international shipping, I will make every effort to pack your item very carefully but will not be able to process a claim should the package arrive damaged. You will need to work through your local post office to file the claim. I will be happy to provide you with any documentation needed. You are also responsible for knowing and paying the tax, customs and duty charges in your own country or state. Those are not generally collected by etsy.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love a challenge and will accept custom orders if I feel it is something that I can make well for you.

I am willing to accept wholesale orders from galleries and gift shops, but do not take consignment orders. Call me or email me for more information: Deb Babcock 970-846-9349 or blueskypottery [!at]
I do not share your contact information with anyone but the shipper I use to send you your pottery. Your email address is added to my newsletter list so that you can receive my discount coupons and be notified of sales in my shop, but that address remains confidential and is not sold or given to anyone but the mailing service I use (MailChimp) who has their own policy for protecting privacy.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

If I feel I can make something custom for you in a style, design and glaze that I have tested and perfected, I'm happy to consider custom and personalized orders. Please know that there is generally an added charge for this and it may take six weeks or more to complete.

Sizing details

Because all of my pottery is made one at a time, there will be variations in size, even when you purchase a set of two or more pieces. Generally these are maybe 1/4 to 1/2 inch in difference and a couple ounces in volume at times.

Care instructions

I use a very durable stoneware clay for my pottery, making it able to withstand continued, everyday use. Unless stated otherwise in the description, you can use my pottery in your oven, microwave and dishwasher.

Gift wrapping and packaging

It is very difficult to gift wrap your pottery since I need to make sure it has lots of bubblewrap and peanuts surrounding it so it arrives intact. However, I am very happy to tie a ribbon around the packing material and to include a hand written card with a message from you inside the box. Just leave me the wording in your Note to Seller at check out.

Wholesale availability

I do sell my work wholesale to gift shops and galleries. Please contact me for minimum order and pricing information. My phone is: 970-846-9349 and my email is

I also have a watercolor shop here on etsy and would love to be represented by a gallery for that work. You can see it at:
