Buyers are raving!

This shop got multiple 5-star reviews in the past 7 days.

Announcement    I am an artist and I am also a potter! Most of the items in my shop are ready to ship. I also have a "made to order" section. I make ceramics that you can't get from anyone else- my own unique style. I make decorative, functional pottery. I create each piece on my pottery wheel or by hand; then carve, incise, paint, draw and glaze them one by one. Everything is made by me in my home studio and fired in my kiln. Each piece goes through at least two firings. They are all one of a kind! I design and make these myself from wet clay to finished. I never use decals or copy anyone else's work. Message me if you would like something special that you do not see here, I'd be happy to discuss creating something unique for you in my signature style! Thank you for supporting my small handmade shop!

Patty Sheppard Art

I make pottery in my home studio...I have my electric kiln, and a small space to work on my pottery wheel in my basement. There are lots of things going on in my tiny house but I find peace working and listening to the hum of my potter's wheel...My favorite things to make are things I imagine specific people using...like nature lovers sipping coffee from my carved nature-inspired mugs! The basement is nice and cool in the summer so the potter's wheel is a good place to be on a hot day...and in the winter the warmth of the kiln makes the whole house feel cozy...
I love making pottery for daily use, so I put a lot of thought into the forms as well as the surface designs.

Though I bring it right away to the post office, sometimes they don't update the tracking information for a few days! Even Priority mail has been slow due to Covid 19. I have no control over the postal delays! I do my part in sending it and packing it carefully. I follow up but some times there are still delays.******** I will send items within 1-3 business days after payment has been made using recycled packing materials.

I am happy to include a small card or gift wrap items, just let me know when you order. I will use delivery confirmation and insure shipped items whenever possible.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Message me for custom or personalized orders. I can give you the approximate time frame that I can have it ready. Usually custom orders take about 4-6 weeks.

Care instructions

I use only food safe/ lead-free glazes. Hand washing is preferred, although most of my stoneware pottery is fine for the dishwasher and microwave. Exceptions: Do NOT microwave anything with silver or gold lustre! Hand wash all earthenware/terracotta pottery.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I am happy to provide simple gift wrapping (usually brown wrapping and a curly ribbon!) and a small note card if you message me at purchase! I use recycled materials and bubble wrap to securely package items for USPS shipping.

Sizing details

Please see individual listings for size and quantity that the item will hold. Sizes are approximate. I measure each piece individually, but it is approximated to the nearest ounce, inch, or half inch. Message me if you have questions!
