Slabs slabs slabs. I like to make things out of slabs. Then I like to paint them with colored slips. I love it when there are nicks in the clay, cool textures and when the slip doesn't cover all the clay. The combo of nature and graphic shapes make my work kinda fun and kinda out of the ordinary. Some of my work is glazed and some of it is not. I like different looks for different subject matter. I have been working on a hand painted animal portrait series using underglazes. Look for more tiles throughout the year!

So take a look around...you never know what you might find!

Enjoy and have a great day!

Shipping - Most items are shipped priority mail. Smaller items may be shipped first class. If additional items are purchased I will do my best to combine shipments. Because of the varying weight and size of each piece I may not be able to combine shipments as I want to make sure they are packaged as safely as possible. If I am able to combine shipping I will promptly let you know and refund the difference in shipping costs. If you would like a shipping quote for multiple items prior to your order please feel free to convo me!

International Shipping - I will ship internationally using USPS Express International shipping service. This is the only service that offers tracking and insurance on international mailings. Because my pieces are breakable I require insurance just to be safe. It can be rather expensive at times though. I'm more than happy to get you a quote though!

Hello and welcome to my shop!

A little about my process…

My work is hand built from slabs unless noted otherwise. I roll out my slab and construct clay “canvas” boxes from my various geometric patterns I have made. I then take the greenwear and apply various hand made colored slips and use a stencil technique to achieve my graphic designs. Mason stains are sometimes then applied for added color and contrast. I use a stoneware clay body that is fired at Cone O4 and Cone 6 if there is glaze. It normally takes about three weeks for each piece to be complete. All of my ceramics are made with lead free materials and are for decoration use only..

Each piece comes ready to hang with a sturdy wire. Each piece is hand made so multiples of a piece will vary slightly. My work has intentionally hand made characteristics from the construction and painting. My work is best suited for indoor display or outdoor if protected from the elements.

Feel free to ask any questions and enjoy my shop!

Payment
I accept all credit card payments via paypal only.
Your order will not be shipped until your transaction is completed and paid for. If would prefer to not use a credit card or paypal I am happy to accept a personal check. Please note that items paid for by check will not be shipped until I have received the check and it has cleared. Please let me know in the comments section of your order if you choose to pay with a personal check so I can make note of it on your order.
Shipping
Please make sure your shipping address on Etsy is correct. This is the address I use for all my shipping. I do not use the address on Paypal. If you would like your order sent to a different address than the one you have for shipping please leave me a note of where you would like it shipped in the comments section of your order or convo me with the address of where you would like it sent. I ship with USPS both 'standard parcel post' and priority mail depending on the size and weight of the package. Please note that shipping cost may vary slightly and I try to make up for that with additional services such as tracking or shipping materials etc.
At the moment I only ship in the United States but if shipping to outside the US please convo me.
Refunds and Exchanges
I am very careful about packing items securely, bubble wrapped and shipped in sturdy boxes. If there should be damage to any items I will replace the broken item if the cause appears to be due to packaging error and not from the shipping carriers. I will require a photo as well as a written description of the problem. This includes a photo of the broken object and of the original packaging. I must receive the photo of the broken item within three days of receiving the shipment. For insurance reasons, the item may need to be returned. Return shipping is to be paid for by purchaser. Please note a replacement of the item could take up to three to six weeks if the item has to be remade.
Additional policies and FAQs
I will take special orders (within my range of work only) just convo me and we can go from there.
