Paper & Clay

My name is Brit McDaniel, and I'm the owner and artist behind Paper & Clay, a modern handmade ceramics design studio. My studio is located in Memphis, Tennessee.

I love making beautiful, functional ceramics that can be used everyday. My hope is that each Paper & Clay piece will make a meaningful addition to someone's home and add something special to their routine.

If your order arrives in a million pieces, don't worry, we can help! The sad truth is, USPS is hard on packages. No matter how many layers of wrap we pack in, they always manage to break something now and then. If this happens to you, here's what you do:

1. Immediately photograph the package and the broken piece(s).
2. Contact us ASAP to let us know about the mishap.
3. Keep the packaging AND broken pieces on hand (for insurance purposes).
4. Rest assured that a replacement will be on the way just as soon as possible.

All sales are final, but if you are truly unhappy with your order please contact us within 3 days and we will work something out. We love our customers and want you to be thrilled with your purchase!

***Due to the delicate nature of handmade ceramics, we CANNOT be responsible for broken pieces months down the line. Breakable things unfortunately sometimes break. Our pieces are made to be durable, but please use care. See the listing for care information specific to your piece, and remember that even though our pieces are dishwasher safe, handwashing is recommended for the longevity of your piece. When loading into the dishwasher, make sure your pieces are not going to bump into others during the cycle!

If your piece breaks within the first week, like the handle on a mug, it was likely damaged during shipping and we are happy to replace your mug in those instances. Forward along photos and we'll have a replacement on its way as soon as possible!

Additional policies and FAQs
Q: I don’t see the style/color that I want in the shop. Can I place a custom order?

A: Due to demand we are currently unable to fulfill custom order requests through Etsy.



Q: My ________ arrived in a million pieces! What now?!

A: We ship thousands of ceramic items a year that arrive safe and sound, but the unfortunate reality is that once in a while an item takes an extra rough journey to your home. We try to combat that reality by packing each item very throughly and thoughtfully. If you are one of the unlucky very few that has opened a box with a not-so-intact item in it, here’s what you do:

Contact us within **3 days** if there is a problem with your order.

1. Immediately photograph the package and the broken piece(s).
2. Contact us ASAP to let us know about the mishap.
3. Keep the packaging AND broken pieces on hand (for insurance purposes).
4. Rest assured that a replacement will be on the way just as soon as possible.



Q: Wholesale?

A: We work with a very limited number of lovely retailers. If you are interested in more information about opening a wholesale account, please email us at hello [!at] shoppaperandclay.com



Q: Are your glazes food safe?

A: But of course! All our glazes are crafted in-house and food safe. They’re also all a beautiful soft satin finish, except for the glossy Appaloosa items, which is great if you love to take photos of your food!



Q: Can I put my items in the dishwasher or microwave?

A: Short answer, yes. Longer answer, sort of! As long as you’re delicate in loading the dishwasher and make sure your pieces won't bump anything during the cycle, your items are totally fine to be cleaned that way. Our regular dinnerware and mugs can definitely go in the microwave, however, any item with GOLD LUSTER detailing cannot go in the microwave and for its longevity should not go in the dishwasher.
