I received my spice bots yesterday and they are amazing!! I have been looking at idstudio's designs for some time, and finally got some bots for myself. I was pleasantly surprised how sturdy they feel, I am not worried about them getting knocked over on the kitchen table! Thanks Christina, they just make me happy

About

Take me to your leader!

I have had an interest in sculpture my entire life. I was obsessed with Play-Doh and modeling clay from a very young age. When I had the opportunity to take a pottery class in high school, I jumped at the chance. Once introduced, I was hooked. I never considered pursuing a formal education in ceramics, and my path in college took another direction. About seven years after graduation, I found myself married and expecting a child. At that time I began taking pottery classes in Atlanta, and once again I felt the medium pulling me in. I have been playing in the mud ever since.

I moved to Wisconsin in 2004 and resumed classes there. At that time, I immersed myself in making aliens, one figure after another, and I continued doing so until my infant son grew old enough to appreciate my work. I finally started to branch out, making 'hobs' and robots - anything to ammuse him. I began selling my work at a local gallery in 2008 after continued encouragement from my husband and several instructors.

Initially my focus was on sculptural objects, but once the economy took a hit, I realized I needed to think about making functional items. This is when the robot salt and pepper shakers and banks were born. I have been making them ever since, and I absolutely love them. I also pull together imp series when the mood strikes me. The idea came to me after watching my husband collect various types of urban vinyl. I thought, "Why not create a collection of original, handmade creatures from porcelain or stoneware?"

I work when I find the time between running a household and taking care of my two boys. I handbuild each piece from a shapeless lump of clay (without the use of molds), which is extremely time consuming. My perfectionism can sometimes be my undoing - a single set of salt and pepper shakers often takes me five and a half hours to six hours to create, from start to finish. As a result, I'm not able to mass-produce, instead choosing to create a small number of original, highly refined pieces. That said, I sell my work to support my art. Most of the money goes towards paying for studio time and materials. I do much of my work out of my home, visting studios at least once a week. I am very fortunate to have access to Rick McKinney's studio at Fired Earth Pottery in Appleton, Wisconsin. He is also the owner and creator of MKM Pottery Tools. This access allows me to work with some of the best materials, glazes and tools in the area, if not the nation (not to mention his natural gas kiln that fires in reduction to cone 10). Because of this, along with Rick's knowledge and expertise, I plan to continue working in the studio whenever possible. As a result, I really do enjoy what I'm doing, and I plan to continue to sell my wares, plugging along at a snail's pace, until both of my boys are in school full time. **what happens then?**

Welcome to ID Studio. All items are are handmade by me, Christina Moore. I appreciate your interest in my store. I hope you like what you see. If you have any questions, feel free to convo me.

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
Payment
My preferred method of payment is Paypal. Items will not be shipped until the payment process has been completed. Please make sure you follow the link to Paypal to complete your transaction.

If you are pleased with your purchase, feedback is always appreciated. It is an invaluable tool for buyers and sellers.
Shipping
I take the utmost care in packing each piece for shipment. I handle and pack each item as if it were being sent to me or my family. All items are carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and packed tightly with peanuts so the pottery will not shift in transit. I used recycled boxes and packing material when available. Insurance is recommended, and included in the cost of shipping for items over $30 (under $30 is optional and available for a small fee).

DOMESTIC ORDERS:

As a general rule, I try to use the most economical shipping method possible. In most cases, I use US Postal Service Parcel Post. That said, if the cost differential is insignifiant, I will use USPS Priority.

If for some reason you'd like me to use another carrier, I am open to that (please convo me). For simplicity of the transaction, shipping charges are estimated. I try to charge as close as possible to actual postage, along with a small buffer for packing materials (again, I prefer not to skimp on this).

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS:

I am open to international orders. I prefer to use International First Class Mail for smaller items (under 4 pounds) or Priority International for larger/heavier items.

The Buyer is responsible for all duty, customs, or other miscellaneous charges imposed by his/her country in addition to what USPS (United States Postal Service) charges. There is a possibility that these will be due when you pick up your package.

I will work with the postal service to check on any shipping restrictions before I send the package. In the event that the purchase cannot legally be sent to you, I will refund your money.

Since international shipping charges can be difficult to estimate, I will refund any significant overage that has been paid.
Refunds and Exchanges
If there is any problem with your order, please contact me as soon as possible. I am a reasonable person and will work with you to resolve the problem in a fair and timely manner.
