About PattyMara

Sales 2,395
On Etsy since 2008

PattyMara's Sacred Heart Cafe offers MicaMagic pottery, ceramics & fiber art, made by me for you.

My Sacred Heart Cafe serves "Art to feed the hungry heart": MicaMagic vessels for ceremony and savory cooking and baking. My pottery is both ceremonial & functional~it is healthy for your body & soul. What lights me up and fuels my passion is the glittering micaceous clay of northern New Mexico.

I am crazy good at fulfilling custom requests. I can infuse a blessing & burning bowl with your intentions and prayers. I can help you navigate the difficult journey of Grief to make a cremation urn that reflects your loved ones life and brings you comfort in their absence.

I make color saturated ceramics to celebrate a wedding, anniversary or birthday with a custom inscription or image. I am fond of El Dias de los Muertos, the Days of the Dead, with its dancing skeletons and grinning sugar skulls. Raven, Fox and Owl appear often.

I am crazy good at custom orders. Try me.

My home & studio are perched above the Rio Grande near Taos, New Mexico. Raven, owl, fox and bear live here. I attend river church with devotion and pray with rainbow trout.

I learned to be a potter in the early seventies at UC Santa Cruz and still sign my pots "Patch"- my college nickname. I learn to felt wool when we moved to New Mexico in 2010. CatCaves and messenger bags/purses and mixed media clay/felt sculptures emerge from my fascination with felting. I make real art, and when it's real, art can heal.

Returns and exchange details
I want you to be absolutely thrilled with your purchase. Let me know if you have any concerns about your order. I will refund any purchase if it is returned to me in the condition you received it, within two weeks after delivery.

Damage and return policy: When your pots arrive please check carefully for any damage during mailing. If you find any damage, take a photograph of both the pot showing the damage and the box I used for shipping it to you. I fully insure all shipping and will file a claim with the photographs you provide.

Mica Clay Cookware and Bakeware Policy:

My policy for if your pot cracks after you begin using it: Sometimes mica clay cookpots and bakeware will crack. My policy is that I will refund or replace within two weeks after the pot is delivered to you.My thinking is that any flaws in the pot caused by me, the potter, will show up within that first two weeks of use. But after fourteen days, you are on your own! Sometimes cracking is caused by operator error such as thermal shock (placing on a hot burner or oven without a slow start on low) or an accidental drop or banging. But after 14 days, you are on your own! Mica cookware and bakeware should last for decades if cared for and used properly.

I accept Paypal, all Credit Cards through Etsy and postal money orders.

Custom orders must be paid for before I make and ship them to you. See additional information below about custom orders.
Shipping
All shipping to USA is USPS-Priority, Parcel Select or First Class, depending on size and location, with delivery confirmation tracking. FedEx is also an option.

If damage occurs during shipping please photograph the pot immediately, and the shipping box. I will file a claim with the photos you supply.
Additional policies and FAQs
WHOLESALE ORDERS

I make all of my art, with no helpers, therefore modified wholesale arrangements are possible if time permits. I can offer a 20 - 40% discount based on quantity ordered. However, I'd love to hear from you and will do what I can to fill your request.

CUSTOM ORDERS

I have over forty years of experience making custom orders for individuals and nonprofit/corporate clients.
The process for ordering a custom item is:
1. You contact me, and we talk about what you are envisioning. I can let you know what is possible, and will strive to create your heart's desire.
2. We work together to create a design agreement which specifies the colors, design imagery, size, due date, cost, shipping. When we have come to an understanding about this design agreement, I will list a custom order in my shop just for you.
3. You place the custom order listing in your cart and send payment.
4. When I receive a notice that you have completed the payment transaction, I will begin the order and send it to you before or by the due date, as we agreed.
5. If you are not satisfied with the final art, talk to me. I will do whatever I can to assure your satisfaction, unless it involves something different from our design agreement. My customers in the past have been very happy, even ecstatic, about their custom orders, so I have great confidence that I can include you in that happy group.
