About

Lovingly handcrafted heirloom items to thoughtfully curate your life & redesign the concept of living.

Hey I'm Gabrielle! I've been playing with clay since 2004 and finished my degree at the Emily Carr University of Art & Design in 2011! After that I began to work as a product designer for a Home Decor company, and traveled across the world working with manufacturers, and internationally setting up showrooms.

One fateful afternoon I was sitting on a plane to Altanta, Georgia and I had an epiphany. The things I was creating didn't matter. They were mass produced bought by people who probably didn't care but wanted something "pretty" to look at.

In that moment I decided to make a difference. I quit my job and focused on creating g ceramic & co. #redefiningliving. How do you design your life? How do the objects (and people) around you curate a beautiful, thoughtful, & meaningful life? Is your world full of mass produced product? Or individually handcrafted items that support culture in your environment?

I believe that my work should be used everyday. Some items are handwash only, which means you must slow down and take the time to handle the items, washing them gently. These are precious moments to be cherished.

I hope you enjoy my shop!

Gabrielle.

All items are handcrafted in my studio in Vancouver BC. No moulds were used; everything is hand built or thrown on the potters wheel. If you would like a handwritten note included in your box, please DM me and I will be happy to oblige!

For longevity I always recommend to hand wash all items with soft materials like a sponge or a cloth. If you have left coffee or tea in a mug for a period of time and now have 'tea rings' inside you can softly sand the interior of the mug with a VERY fine wet/dry sandpaper.

Please be aware that a knock against the counter, or any impact could cause a hairline fracture that you may not see! Later on, rapid heat increase (by pouring hot water inside, or heating in the microwave) can make the item shatter or split. Before any items ship I test and ensure that items are sound.

Any items that have 18k gold on them should not, under any circumstance be put in the microwave! It is metal and will make your device spark or potential blow up // catch on fire.

Yes!!! I take custom orders! Please be advised that anything unique takes a minimum of 6-8 weeks for production, and all custom orders are non refundable. If you would like to chat about something special just for you, please send me a message!

If you have any issues with items purchased please message me with photos and I will do my best to address the situation accordingly.

If you'd like to stop by the studio or have any other questions please send me a message!

Returns and exchanges
Your satisfaction with order is extremely important to me. I am available to answer any questions you might have (size, material, color, design etc.).

Our items are packed with much care in recycled custom cardboard boxes with recylced paper securely positioning items- bubble wrap for orders with more than three items.

On orders with multiple items, message me with your address and specific items and I will create a posting(s) accordingly. All orders within North America are shipped through Canada Post, with tracking, if you prefer something else, convo me and we can work something out! Items shipped to Canada will arrive in 3-5 business days, and the US 5-8 business days. Orders shipped out of Canada without tracking and are of course subject to periodic customs inspections, so obviously delay can occur. g ceramic & co. is not responsible for lost, delayed or stolen items; as well as additional shipping charges or duties.

Deadline for Christmas Orders is December 12. However I can not guarantee arrival of your item(s) due to customs or delays from higher mail volume. I ship Canada Post Expedited 5 Day within Canada, and Air Mail to the US with tracking. Any other shipping methods // carriers available upon request.
