New from my kiln! Coffee spoon rests-- put some in your holiday stockings!


I love to make things from the ground up.

My work often starts with raw materials that I responsibly gather from the garden or the wild. It's not unusual to find me traipsing through fields or woods, or slogging through swampy places. Some of the naturals are prepared using primitive technologies before the creative process begins. I think there are many people like me, who find joy in feeling a connection with nature. If my work can bring happiness to those kindred spirits, I'm happy too.

I work totally on my own, in the time-honored tradition of fine artisans and crafts people. My handmade items start with a creative idea and are carried out to completion solely by me. You are purchasing directly from the artist! :)

Working in isolation, It's important to feel connected with others and like I'm doing some good for someone. So as part of my mission in having this Etsy shop I try and help others to empower themselves. I donate a percentage of my profits to these two organizations:

Returns and exchanges
If there's a problem, please contact me and allow me the opportunity to correct or compensate for a situation if it is my fault. Honest mistakes can happen by seller or buyer. Communication is a two way street. It's important to me that you are happy with my service and your purchases. Please read the description of the item before purchase and note important information like approximate sizes.

If you just aren't pleased with an item, please convo me within two weeks of purchase. I'll ask that you ship the item back intact, and I'll send you a refund for the price of the item when it's received. I know circumstances vary, and I'll do my best to work with you to reach a fair solution.
I prefer Paypal, but also take Etsy Payments.

Custom orders must be paid for in advance. I'll create a custom listing for your item(s), and item(s) must be purchased before I begin work on it.
My shipping fee includes handling costs.

On multiple purchases, I will combine items for shipping if you contact me before purchase. I will reserve the items you want so you can purchase them in one listing, if you like.

My items are sent through US Postal Service. If you request it in advance, US orders can be shipped USPS Priority Mail with insurance and delivery confirmation added. I will adjust the shipping cost for you before you purchase.

For Paypal orders I try to ship items the same or next business day, if possible, unless my shop announcement says I'm away. For Etsy Payments I ship the next business day after I receive notice from Etsy that payment has cleared.

Purchases are packed with care- secure but not fancy. I use recycled shipping materials when I can.


I'm happy to ship some finished work to International buyers in Canada, Australia, UK, France, Germany, The Netherlands using US Postal Service First Class Mail International Package Service. There is no tracking for International Mail. International shipments can be upgraded to International Priority Mail. It is very expensive and your choice. Please contact me before purchasing if you'd like to upgrade delivery. I'll adjust the shipping fee before you purchase. You are responsible for any taxes or custom fees that occur in your country. I suggest your check with your government to see what the fees would be before purchasing.

I may ship some finished work to a few other countries not listed above. Please contact me with your location if interested in purchasing.

Full purchase price for merchandise will be stated on customs forms. International buyers are responsible for any customs fees for imported items. I can't list merchandise as "gift" on the customs form. Sorry, but due to restrictions I can't send raw gourds or certain plant materials Internationally. There is no tracking on International shipments. Depending on the country and customs delays, please allow up to 6 weeks for an International shipment to reach you.
Additional policies and FAQs
Unless otherwise specified I will use the address on the Paypal receipt.

All care is taken to represent the items in my photos to the best of my ability. I photo outdoors in natural sunlight. Please be aware that individual computer monitors and settings vary and can cause some color variation.

I encourage the buyer to read the descriptions, which include measurements and other crucial information pertaining to specific items that cannot be discerned by only looking at the photos.

Please feel free to convo me for any reason, before, during or after a purchase- I feel good communications are an important part of service.

Thanks and I look forward to doing business together!
