Did you know that these are perfect little jewelry dishes? Have one on your nightstand to put your rings and bling in, and smile every night when you go to bed!
This is "Lilly", a sweet custom dog portrait sculpture, who is leaving me to reunite with the real Lilly. I'll miss her!
Finished this lovely custom order for a new little baby girl. Love how it turned out.

About

Whimsy. Ceramic. Experiments.

The quest to express uniqueness in every aspect of life, and to make loved ones really feel how special they are led me to create this little Clay World, which is full of whimsical, original and sometimes weird pieces.

I feel so many emotions when I see and make art; and as a devoted art lover, I truly believe art can bring joy… But I also believe we shouldn’t take ourselves so seriously, this is why my pieces usually have a whimsical feel.

I love making custom wall portrait sculptures, masks and other figurative sculptures, as well as ceramic jewelry and other functional pieces. A lot of my inspiration comes from my favorite artists; from my childhood in Argentina; and also from totally random things around me that catch my eye.

I have a little studio at home where I make my art experiments while the kids are at school, and sometimes late into the night. I also still take classes with a wonderful ceramics artist at the Community Clay Studio, where I make all of my raku and pit-fired pieces.

I love beautiful things. They might not always fit the general idea of beauty, but for that I love them even more. I hope you will appreciate what I have to share with you. If you have any questions or comments, I'd love to hear about them. You can email me at: Ooohclay(at)gmail(dot)com

Art makes me happy, and I hope my art will make you happy too.

    I make ceramic experiments that aim to bring whimsy to everyday life. I love special, unique pieces that make a statement and make people happy. I believe we shouldn’t take ourselves too seriously, so I created a silly, fun world to share with you.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I would love to make a special piece for you. Beware, though, that these will be similar but not exact to the piece shown in the reference photo, since color might vary from one firing to the next, and since each sculpture is made individually by me, without the use of any molds or other “cookie-cutting” techniques ;)

When you place your order, write the details you’ve chosen in the comments section. Once you have placed your order, I will email you within 24h so you can send me a photo and any other details that you would like me to include in the portrait.

Please note that custom orders can take up to 6-8 weeks to be shipped, so make sure to let me know if you need your sculpture for a specific date.

Care instructions

I pack all my orders very carefully, but please make sure you are careful when handling your new piece, since clay will brake if it not treated gently (don’t use it to push a nail on the wall, or to try your gravity hypotheses).

With the exception of Raku and pit-fired pieces, all bowls/ cups/ plates/ soap dishes/ etc are food-safe, microwave-safe and dishwasher-safe, although I suggest hand washing and no microwave, if you want to preserve their delicate finish.

Sizing details

Please ask any questions you might have before ordering, and make sure to use the comments box for any details on custom or made-to-order pieces. I photograph my sculptures and provide all the information I think you might need, but please let me know if I am missing something.

If something is not right, I will do my best to make it right. All I want is for us all to be happy. Note, however, that buyer is responsible for professional fedex packaging and return postage on any returns.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at ooohclay[at] gmail[dot]com.

Shipping

I typically ship orders within 1-2 business days through the United States Postal Service. Please contact me before placing an order if you have special shipping requests such as express mail or insurance. These services may be purchased for additional charge. Please provide your shipping address and country, so that the additional costs may be determined.

All orders are shipped to the address listed on your account unless you notify me differently. Please be extra careful when writing these details, since I can not be responsible for errors on the part of the buyer, such as errors in the shipping address provided.

INTERNATIONAL:
In some countries it may take 4+ weeks for your package to arrive. Please be patient :)

Returns, refunds and Exchanges

All custom orders are final and cannot be returned. I love my art and want you to love it too, but if for some reason you are not happy with your purchase, please contact me and I will try to find a solution for you. I will issue you a refund (minus the shipping costs), if I deem it appropriate.

Should an item arrive damaged, please send me a photo of it within 24 hours. Save all your packaging materials, and file a claim with the Postal Service. I want to make sure that you are completely happy. However, breaks that occur in the care of the customer are not covered. These items are very delicate and breaks do happen when not carefully handled.

Items that are shipped back to me must be professionally wrapped by FED EX.

A Note From Oooh Clay

Please look around. Everything was made by me, with love, whimsy, and lots of attention to detail. All of my pieces are one-of-a-kind; I can replicate them, but they will never be exact, so if you love something you see, don’t think about it for too long (talking from experience, here!).

Shipping and delivery dates vary as many of the items listed in my shop are custom made. Of course if it is in stock, delivery dates could be within 1-2 weeks of order and payment.

By placing an order you signify that you have read and agree to my shop's policies.

Have a comment or question? Please e-mail me at ooohclay[at] gmail[dot]com. I will respond to you within 24 hours.
