Announcement   Handmade Porcelain Ceramics, Hand-pressed Paper, Hand-spun Yarn and Nature Treasures. Careful design focused on function for your home and lifestyle.

Your purchase benefits my efforts in raising my family in a humble, gentle and selfless lifestyle and rural area. I teach them by example to find peace and preservation through simplicity, mindfulness and hard work.
Your support of my work means a lot.

With every purchase, I thank you with a 10% coupon code for future purchases.

On Packaging…
All of my pieces are packed with care to ensure their safe arrival. I collect clean, used packing materials from friends and local businesses to reuse in my packaging. I would be so pleased if you continued the cycle and also reuse these materials or find someone who can (another potter maybe). It is important to me to help reduce plastics in the environment and landfills.

Everything in this shop is designed, made, and packaged by me, Licia Lucas-Pfadt. If you have any questions, please feel free to talk directly to me! I am the owner and sole studio-artist at Shady Grove Pottery. I have been making and selling pottery since 1994. I consider myself a professional studio potter.

Remember traditional anniversary gifts: 8th and 9th - pottery, 18th - porcelain. You can find those gifts here.

Please read each listing carefully to learn about that piece. All my pottery is fired in an electric kiln to a mid-range temperature of 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. Most of my slips and glazes are made from scratch in my Montana home studio. I do use some commercial glazes for accenting. They are all lead-free and non-toxic. I research and test every glaze that I make to bring you the best, durable, and heirloom pieces.

I ship only on Mondays, unless you request otherwise. I ship mainly USPS Priority Mail. Most items are in stock. Some are made-to-order and this will be noted in the listing. Special orders can take up to 4-6 weeks. I also ship international. I will refund any extra shipping paid for all orders. Please note that shipping priority means getting your items quicker and safer, but comes with a cost that USPS prices, not me. Most USA shipping costs are accurate to my best ability, but difficult to predict based on zone. Therefore, any overages paid in shipping will be refunded as soon as your package is shipped.

Sending a gift? I can ship directly to the recipient and include a personalized note. Just include the info in your order.

Before completing your purchase, please review my shop policies, found in the section to your left.

About

Licia's Story

“I’m just a quiet and shy potter hidden away in the Madison Valley.”

Licia Lucas-Pfadt is a studio potter with collectors from all over. 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 quickly had children. Licia began her studio in their home garage. Her 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 he thought and she also has snake rattles for sale in her on-line shop. Though she’s quiet, she’s not afraid to kill a snake and tear the rattle off as a treasure. Aside from snake rattles and some of her hand-spun yarns, she mainly sells her pottery.
She is currently the artist-in-residence at Grey Cliffs Ranch in Three Forks, Montana. She teaches private lessons to guests and supplies the Lodge with one-of-a-kind pieces for use there. 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 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.
Licia takes part in every aspect of her business: designing, glaze making, creating, firing, photographing and shipping. Nothing is mass produced. She hires no-one to assist her.
She has been making and selling pottery since 1994. With a life time of experience in the arts, Licia has refined her creativity 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 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.

My home-made glazes are formulated and tested for stability and leaching. I strive to bring you the best durable and safest glazes you can pass on for many generations. All of my glazes are safe for use with food and in the dishwasher. Some pieces I recommend hand-washing that are unglazed on the exterior to ensure longevity. My crackly aqua glaze may stain in the cracks with dark foods such as beets, coffee or red wine. This antiques those pieces beautifully. Please read each item's description to learn more. Please contact me if you have any questions.

I will refund any overages paid on shipping as soon as your package ships. If you'd like a more accurate estimate based on what items you want and your zip, please contact me.

I do offer gift wrapping with a personalized card. This is complimentary. Please just ask.

The teaspoon in some photos is to help you reference size. It is 5 inches long. It does not come with the sale.

Payment
Please pay using direct checkout with credit card, paypal, personal check or money order. If a payment is not received within 7 days of purchase, I will cancel sale and relist the item. I will wait 10 days for checks and money orders to clear before shipping an item.

All made-to-orders and special orders must be paid for before I even add it to my list of things to make.

There is no sales tax. :)
Shipping
I ship only on Mondays now, unless you request otherwise. All shipping costs are estimated to my best ability. Any overages paid on shipping will be refunded as soon as your package is shipped. Contact me for a more accurate estimate based on what you want and your zip code.

Shipping For domestic orders (USA):

I use USPS Priority for most of my packages, shipped within 1-3 business days of purchase, if in stock. If you have a specific deadline or would like to upgrade to a faster service, just let me know. 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:

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) postal charges that you already paid. These may be due when you pick up your package.

Charges for international mail can be hard to estimate. If I have over charged you for shipping, I will refund the difference.


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. After wrapping the item heavily in bubble wrap, it is floated in a sturdy box surrounded by foam peanuts. Fragile labels are place all over the box.

I will gladly refund 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.

However, if you receive an item that was broken, I can make a claim for you if you send me photographs of the broken pieces with the packaging in a timely manner. Once I am reimbursed by USPS, I can then send you another item or refund you the cost of the item (not including shipping).
Refunds and Exchanges
I will accept returns or exchanges 20 days after the date shipped.

I do my best to accurately describe each piece in the listing. Please keep in mind 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.

All made-to-orders and special orders are non-refundable.
Additional policies and FAQs
I will consider wholesale prices and 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.
