Elise Thomas Designs

Over two decades of experience in glasswork and ceramics have given me a combination of techniques for bringing into being works born of the substance of the earth. Through oxygen-rich fire and the carefully monitored environment of a digitally controlled kiln, my items are both lovely and enduring, like the great moments in a person’s life.

My artistic aesthetic had always been about juxtaposition: elegant & rustic, fire & ice, organic & detailed. I've found that glass and clay provide the perfect platform for expressing this duality. One gritty, functional and enduring; the other delicate, slick and ethereal.

Perhaps my greatest work of art is the buying experience itself. From the selection of your colors and designs, to the creation and personalization of each piece, to unique and natural packaging options, I offer superior customer service throughout the sale.

Rush orders

1. Rush order fee: This will rush your order to the front of the line. This additional fee allows me to work overtime hours - evenings and weekends - to complete your order ahead of schedule. You may add that here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/186515453/rush-order-fee

2. I also offer an upgrade to Express (overnight) shipping at checkout.

Also, please note that USPS does not offer a guarantee on their Priority mail service, only on Express mail. That being said, I have had very good experience with Priority service, they almost always make the 3 day time frame. I just like to let folks know this when they have a deadline of their own to meet.
