Our new plates just arrived (perfectly packed) and we love them! Andy and Nancy custom made 8 dinner size plates in 8 different beautifully rich colors that we chose with 8 different decals! We went with all farm type animals and they are wonderful! The plates are super heavy duty which is important for our lifestyle and they have a great hand made feel and look to them -funky and retro! Can't wait to have friends over for dinner with all the fun colors and images going on around the table! Thanks guys for such amazing plates! Can't wait to get some type of salad bowls to go with them! That's next!! cheers, Lisa and Mike

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

We DO NOT gift wrap.
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.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom inquiries are welcome, but please be aware that we charge for design work, including font searches. It's better for you to have you files ready for us to have a look and determine if we can work with them or not, and please be ready to adjust where we feel there needs to be adjustments, in order to provide the best possible results.

Please contact us prior to purchasing an item that you'd like personalized, or made custom by adding extra things to it!
We can then add the extra cost to it so you know what the final price will be for you. We DO NOT add names, dates, etc to ware without payment for these extra things. Questions? Send us a convo!
