Licia's Story

Licia Lucas-Pfadt is a studio potter and mixed media artist.

Born a twin to an art teacher in Pennsylvania, creativity and individuality were encouraged. So after high school, her choice was art school.

After she received her BFA in ceramics and fibers in 1998, she and her now-husband took a six-week road trip exploring this beautiful country. They ended in Montana and have been there ever since. They soon married and had children. Licia began her studio in their home garage. Her two kids are now both in school and she is able to focus more on her work, but prides herself in being a mother.

Licia named her business Shady Grove Pottery after an old Appalachian folk song. It’s a happy coincidence that Rice, one of the many musicians that played this song, had a snake rattle attached to his guitar to make it sound better and she also has snake rattles for sale in her on-line shop. She mainly sells her pottery but also sells her hand pressed papers and nature treasures like rattles and antler sheds. Her recent work explores copper electroforming, enameling, jewelry and more.

She is currently the artist-in-residence at Grey Cliffs Ranch in Three Forks, Montana. She teaches private lessons to guests and supplies the GCR Lodge with one-of-a-kind pieces for use there. She offers private lessons in clay. She also loves gardening and spends her free time growing a vegetable garden for the use of the GCR Lodge.

Licia works exclusively in porcelain clay because it is simple, pure and makes a wonderful canvas for her drawings and made-from-scratch glazes. She fires in an electric kiln to cone 6 (about 2000 degrees Fahrenheit). Her work is both wheel-thrown and hand-built focusing on functional pieces and home décor. All her glazes have been tested for leaching and durability. They are food safe as well as microwave and dish-washer safe. However, she does recommend hand-washing to ensure longevity of your heirloom pieces.

Her work is highly influenced by her life-experiences, and she tries to have many. Travel, meeting people, teaching, exploring nature: these are all things that influence her work. She is very connected with nature and her surroundings, which influence her work from textures and shapes to glaze colors and combinations. She loves the antiqued patterns of old printing blocks and often uses them in her work to create textures. Her illustration work is focused on woodland creatures and botanicals.

Licia takes part in every aspect of her business: designing, glaze making, creating, firing, photographing and shipping. Nothing is mass produced.

She has been making and selling pottery since 1994. With a life time of experience in the arts, Licia has refined her talents to have a professional quality. Her work is an on-going discovery process, building on each new thing she experiences and learns. You will always find new pieces in her shop that will match your growing collection.

If you find her hidden away in the Madison Valley, you'll feel you've discovered a secret treasure.

Welcome to Shady Grove Pottery, Handmade Porcelain Ceramics and more by Licia Lucas-Pfadt.

Please let me know if you have any questions. You can convo me here on Etsy or email me at licia.gcr [!at] gmail.com

Everything in my shop is handmade by me. Please understand that no two pieces are exact. There are slight variations from piece to piece in shape, size and color. Handmade pieces don't look like pieces that are mass produced from molds. Imperfections are part of the craft. Embracing that quality is like being close to nature. And it's like being human. Please trust that I am doing my very best to provide you with quality work.

I do my best to accurately describe each piece in the listing. Please be sure to read the descriptions! Also, keep in mind that each piece is handmade and has by nature "happy" imperfections and variations. Handmade pieces don't look like pieces that are mass produced from molds. Imperfections are part of the craft. Embracing that quality is like being close to nature. And it's like being human.

If you are unhappy with an item, please contact me so that we can work together to resolve the issue. I want you, the customer, to be happy with your purchase.

In the event of a return or exchange, shipping charges are the responsibility of the buyer and non-refundable. Items must be returned in their original packaging and arrive un-damaged.

All made-to-orders and special orders are non-refundable.
Payment
Please pay using direct checkout with credit card, paypal or etsy gift card.

All made-to-orders and special orders must be paid for before I even add it to my list of things to make.
Shipping
I ship a couple times a week, depending on orders and holidays. Most items are ready to ship and will ship within 2-3 days. Any made-to-orders will give details in their descriptions.

Shipping For domestic orders (USA):

I use USPS Priority for most of my packages, shipped within 1-3 business days of purchase. Made-to-order or special orders take 4-6 weeks to complete. You will be notified when your package is shipped. Please contact me if you would like the tracking numbers. In most cases, I email the tracking number to you when the item is shipped.


For international orders:

I only ship to Canada currently as a way to help reduce my footprint. I believe in supporting locally and hope that you can find what you like locally too.

International packages are shipped using Priority International or other. Please allow 2-4 weeks for the delivery of your international package.

You are responsible for all duty, customs, or any other charges imposed by your country above and beyond the USPS (United States Postal Service) charges that you already paid. These may be due when you pick up your package.

On Packaging:

All of my pieces are packed with care to ensure their safe arrival. I have lots of experience with shipping my work so you can feel confident that I will get your item to you safely.

I will gladly refund or replace any item that should be broken in transit. If something were to break, I would need proof with a photograph of the broken piece.

I use a combination of new and clean, reused packing materials.

The hard facts on USPS:

Once a package leaves my hands, I am no longer responsible for what happens. If tracking says item has been delivered, but customer did not receive it, it is up to the customer to file a claim. If tracking was lost and item went missing in transit, it is up to the customer to file a claim. If delivery was delayed because of an error on USPS, I am not at fault.
Additional policies and FAQs
I will consider custom orders. Please contact me for more information.

I no longer include a receipt in your package. You can print one out yourself on Etsy.
Privacy
I do not share any of your information with anyone. I do not solicit you with emails. I simply give you a coupon after your first purchase to use if you graciously decide to return to my shop.
