Announcement   Hand-thrown pottery by M. Furtak. All pottery is microwave and dishwasher safe. All glazes are non-toxic and lead-free. I often have more items available than I have listed here. If you would like a larger set of something, or are looking for something that isn't listed please ask. I usually ship by Priority Mail, which is 2 to 3 days within the United States, but large orders, or large items may require a box that is too big for standard priority mail. These items will be sent by Parcel Select mail instead, which sometimes takes a few extra days. I'm happy to wrap something for you if you are desperate, but gift wrap gets pretty beat up in shipping. Cards usually survive just fine, though. If you'd like me to include one, let me know what you'd like it to say. (:

Welcome!

About

Simple, Functional, Hand-Thrown Pottery

I like the beauty of simple, functional things. After 20+ years making pottery, I make clean, unfussy pottery.

Each piece in my shop is thrown on the potters' wheel from stoneware clay, trimmed, bisqued, glazed with glazes I make from scratch, and glaze fired.

If you'd like more details on how the process works, you can find them on my blog, here: http://pateceramicspotteryprocess.blogspot.com

    I'm a full-time potter in a little basement studio in Malden, MA, shared with salamanders, lightning bugs, and grass spiders. I use some of the oldest technology on earth to transform handfuls of clay into beautiful, useful things.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept payment by Paypal, credit card, and Etsy gift cards. All Massachusetts orders will be subject to Massachusetts state sales tax.
Shipping
Most items ship by priority mail, which is usually 2 to 3 days to anywhere in the continental US. Most packages go out the same day you place your order, or the next day.

Multiple items shipping in the same package or particularly large items, shipped to the west coast or down south, will sometimes be sent by the post office "parcel select" service due to size and zone restrictions on priority mail shipments.

I am happy to ship directly to a gift recipient. If you have a special message you would like to accompany your gift, let me know and I will enclose a note for you. Please be sure to tell me your real name, as your niece may not know that your Etsy username is peanutbuttersandwich67.
Refunds and Exchanges
This is pottery, and things do break in the mail. If you receive a damaged item, please keep all the pieces, as well as the box and packing materials, and send me an email so we can work out a replacement or refund.

Due to the fragile nature of my items, I do not offer exchanges for items I ship. If you are unsure about an item, send me an email. I will happily provide you with more details about it, and answer any questions you have before you finalize your order.
