Announcement Welcome to etcArts! I try to keep my shop stocked with examples of everything I make, so if there is a particular type/color/size that you’re looking for just ask! I probably have it or can make it for you.

Love this hanging planter! Fast shipping, well packed. Wish it hadn't taken me 50 pages to find it . . .

I love this statement piece. It is weighty enough to feel significant, but light enough to be super comfortable to wear. The design is so striking and original. I love it!

What a perfect pot! I have been searching for over 6 months for an interesting hanging pot and came upon this seller's site. So supremely happy with my purchase. Highly recommend this shop. My Hoya is feeling the love from this planter ❤

I make ceramic objects that I want to exist
etcArts (etcetera•arts) is the business name for ceramic artist/potter Eric Sewell, who has been doing this thing off and on for almost 20 years.
The short story is I've been making ceramic work (somewhat) steadily since college and etcArts is the business/entity that I create work as/under. This online presence was established in 2007, maintained regularly until about 2014 or so, and then rebooted in June 2017.
The LONG(er) story is that I, Eric (that's me, writing this) became interested in clay while pursuing an art degree of some sort in college. After graduation I applied to graduate schools, taught college level design and illustration, worked as a production artist, and worked as a tech support trainer for a medical software company, at various times, over a period of 12 years (with some gaps and/or overlap in chronology in there.) Over that time I've gotten to a place where I have the equipment and space to create things and sell them and pay the mortgage.
I only use non-toxic, food safe glazes in my work unless otherwise noted. All work is food, dishwasher, and microwave safe unless otherwise noted. Hand washing is always recommended for heavily textured or delicate pieces.
There may be very slight differences in the color/tonality of the photos versus the actual item. Every effort is made to represent the piece as accurately as possible, but also I hate taking photos of my work.
Accepted payment methods
Returns & exchanges
Cancellations can be made up to 24 hours after purchase.
I ship items within 1-3 business days, though usually it will be closer to one day than three. Please check the listing and/or your invoice for shipping times. All shipping times are estimates.
I mostly ship via USPS but will opt for FedEx for larger/heavier packages, as they are more cost effective. All orders are insured but if signature confirmation is required please let me know.
Customers who are local to Lincoln may pick up their order - contact me for more information.
You are responsible for all duty, customs, or any other charges imposed by your country above and beyond the USPS (United States Postal Service) postal charges that you already paid. These may be due when you pick up your package.
All items are packed with the utmost care -- wrapped in bubble wrap, air bags, and double boxed when necessary. I want you to receive your order in one piece! If the order breaks in the mail I will work with you to file a claim.
I use a combination of new and clean, reused packing materials.
I do not include any sort of receipt or invoice in my packages - one can be printed from your Etsy order.
Additional policies and FAQs
It's requested so rarely that you should just ask.
HAHA NOPE. If you've ever seen one of my wrapped packages you'd probably pay me to ensure that I don't wrap your purchase. I make things out of clay, not paper and ribbon.
Eh, not real excited about it.
I do not produce work for wholesale.
Gallery or other venue:
Maybe. Contact me for more information.
