So cute. Very original. Thick and great quality. I'm glad I came across them while perusing Etsy!
I've always loved to play in mud. I'm just more specific about it now.
Corduroy Clay consists of me, Carrie Martin. Primarily, I'm a potter and tile maker in Tallahassee, Florida. However, I've also been known to dabble in sewing, book making, painting, sketching, journaling, creative writing, paper-making, jewelry making, mosaics and whatever else I could get my hands on.
I've been selling pottery since 2005 and in love with it much longer than that. Originally, I mostly sold out of my home during home shows, where I'd transform my home into an open pottery gallery full of refreshments, friends of friends and lots of family. I currently sell on Etsy and at local markets. I'm constantly inspired by the books I read, the people I love, the gifts nature leaves behind and the materials I work with. Using a lot of texture and plays on contrast I try to transform these things into my art.
For more information, and more detailed stories behind the individual works, you can check out my website: www.corduroyclay.com, or look for me on Facebook and Instagram. I welcome questions and comments and hope that my work will bring some happiness and beauty to to your world.

Accepted payment methods
Returns & exchanges
My shipping prices are for USPS mail and include everything being packaged with plenty of bubble wrap and peanuts and/or brown paper to ensure a cushy ride. I only buy the cornstarch, biodegradable peanuts, but I do reuse any peanuts I receive from other shipments. If your peanuts look like cheese-less cheetos, consider using in your compost! Items ship either by First Class, Priority or Parcel Post mail depending on their size and weight. I try to ship the most inexpensive way that still gets to you faster. All packages have insurance on them. Please allow 2-14 days for your package to arrive after shipment date, 2-3 if it was shipped via Priority Mail. The tracking number you'll receive when the order ships doesn't always show up to date information either. I've had many packages that have tracking showing that only the label was created, all the way up until the customer receives the package, so please be patient.
For International orders, shipping options vary and will take an undetermined amount of time to arrive. If you prefer to have your order shipped a specific way, please send me a message indicating which you prefer. I will work with you to adjust any shipping costs the best I can.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
Not currently taking any special or custom orders.
Sizes listed are approximate measurements, not exact.
All of my place settings and dinnerware pieces are food safe and can be used in the oven, microwave and dishwasher. I use all my own wares, so they've been tried and tested for years. The only thing I don't recommend is using them in the oven if the dish was in the refrigerator. The drastic change from cold to hot could cause cracking or breaking.
All of the tiles (unless otherwise stated for some of the older ones) are high fired and safe to use inside, outside and in areas that get a lot of water. They can be installed or hung by a small nail.
