Such a cute cup. I finally bought my first Circa pieces. The mug is adorable and fits right in with my collection of pottery mugs.

About

Long story short....

Andy & I (Nancy) operate a 2-person small batch production pottery studio in the Ravenswood Industrial Corridor in Chicago. Our ware is strongly influenced by old-school dinerware (you know, from a diner!) and pop culture, good and bad. We make everything in-house (from scratch) and that helps us create a unique and durable functional product.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

The ware we make is very durable! It's food, dishwasher & microwave safe. It's even safe if placed in an oven for warming, from cold to 350.
Our prints are indelible, meaning they will not scratch or rub or fade off.
We WANT you to use our ware every day, so we make them durable and great looking for every day.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All of our packaging is chosen with the need to get the ware to the buyer intact.
With that in mind, we do use biodegradable packing peanuts, and when possible, we use rubber bands to secure the bubblewrap so it can be reused.
Our boxes are new.
Our "Thank You" cards are recyclable.
That covers it, but if you have any questions, do ask!

Wholesale availability

You can send us a convo here about wholesale with your store info!
We have a linesheet here on Etsy we can send you to, or a PDF we can email you if you give us your details.

Sizing details

All of our listings have a capacity measurement, physical dimensions and weight of the item empty. If you still can't understand the measurement or need more details you haven't seen in the listing, let us know.
