Announcement   Shortly after I moved away from home to start a life on my own, my mother came to visit me in my first solo apartment. I had four dishes to my name—two dinner plates and two salad plates—all Franciscan Merry-Go-Round. I had found them in a thrift store and was so pleased to have dishes of my own choosing. She took note of my excitement over my starter dishes and flipped a plate over when I turned my back to write down all the details. About a year later boxes upon boxes were delivered to my apartment: the fruits of my mother's relentless bidding on nearly every piece of Franciscan Merry-Go-Round that had been posted on Ebay since her departure. She told me that the gift of the hunt brought more joy to her than the idea that I may hold on to them forever. And so, I let them go…

Thank you for your consideration in viewing the work of my hands.

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
Paypal (ensures faster delivery)
Personal Check / Money Orders (work is shipped upon clearing of payment)
Shipping
Items will be shipped via FedEx Ground within 3-5 days of payment.

Shipping and handling is based on a mean—regardless of where the piece is shipped within the U.S., the price is the same.

All work was created with the utmost care and attention to detail. This is the same approach taken when packing them. Plenty of bubble wrap, peanuts or tissue are used to ensure a safe arrival. If, for some odd reason, a piece is broken in shipping it will either be replaced with a similar item at no charge, or be refunded (photographic proof of breakage is necessary for a refund).

All shipping on international orders will be estimated and charged accordingly.
Refunds and Exchanges
Attempts to accurately represent the work has been done with the photography and description that accompanies each piece(s). Regardless, should a buyer be unhappy with their purchase, a full refund for the purchase price (minus the shipping) will be issued provided the item was not used.
Additional policies and FAQs
All of this work was created by a human in an environment with other humans. While I strive for perfection, each piece reminds me that birthmarks are a part of the process. Most of these are eliminated before firing. Others are introduced within the kiln. As such, you may be the lucky recipient of an iron spot. I respectfully ask that you do not receive it as a flaw. Instead, consider how you might feel if someone turned you away because of that weird mole on your back. Enjoy the humanity.
