It's Magic!

It starts with earth and hands to form it. Then, add colors from the earth and fire it - and it becomes a thing of beauty and utility.
Several years ago I saw some very old (3,000 years!) pottery. The bowls were primitive, with the finger prints of the maker still visible. They were behind glass, but still they invited touch.
I love the feel of the clay and natural elements that I incorporate in my pottery, and I work to make pieces that are a pleasure to use and will last with regular use. And I am happy to practice an ancient craft that is as relevant to daily life now as it was 3,000 years ago. That , to me, is magic!

A Little About Grace Pottery
For me,making pots is pure joy!From my first bowl,I've been hopelessly smitten.My intent is to create beautiful original,functional pieces.Pottery that will be enjoyed for a lifetime.
MY PROCESS
Most of my pieces start on the potter's wheel.Some are altered and occasionally I hand build pieces.I am constantly inspired by shapes,colors and textures of nature.
I use stoneware clay and always slow fire and slow cool the pieces.Glazes are non-toxic and lead free,some formulated by me and some are commercially available.

Creating and using handmade items are important aspects of my life.I believe that it helps us all to slow down a little and appreciate the moment.
I also believe that some of the happy energy put into making the piece becomes a part of the piece.

In the event of breakage during shipping, please take photos of the damage to package and pottery and convo me. I will issue a refund or replacement, whichever works for you.

I accept direct payments through the Etsy checkout and Paypal payments. I do accept checks, but the shipping is delayed until the check clears.
Shipping
Ready made pieces are shipped within 48 hours. On custom orders I specify the the time it will take me to finish the order.I will notify you when it is ready to ship.
Packaging
I try to follow green practices in my studio and shipping. I double box the pottery to insure that it is well protected. Unfortunately, I have not found a reliable substitute for packing peanuts. I use the smallest amount of these possible, and I ask you to recycle if possible.
