About PAULOVA

Sales 3,098
On Etsy since 2008

Thoughtfully crafted, handmade wares for your home.

Inspired by the functional and simple beauty of Scandinavian design, Paulova Ceramics are timeless pieces for the home. I hand make each piece myself, incorporating clean lines with a contrast of textures. These pieces are meant to be picked up, touched, and experienced. Enjoy!

Returns and exchange details
DAMAGED ITEMS:
We accept replacements or refunds on any items that are damaged during shipping. Please notify us within 48 hours of receipt and include a photo of the damaged item as well as the packaging. Please do not throw out the box or any packaging materials until you have taken a photo! This is important. We will cover the shipping cost on replaced item(s).

EXCHANGES:
We will accept exchanges or refunds if you are not happy with your purchase. Please notify us within 48 hours of receipt. Buyer is responsible for the return shipping charges. The exchange or refund will be processed once we receive the item and ensure it is in its original condition. We cannot be held liable for returned items that are damaged during transit or are lost or stolen. So please wrap well, use a trusted shipping carrier and insure your package if possible.

All purchases are final on custom orders and sale items.
Payment
Items purchased are not sent out until payments are processed. Please make sure your address is current and valid. We cannot be held liable for items shipped to the wrong address provided to us.
Shipping
Packages are shipped from Portland, Oregon Monday-Friday within 72 hours of purchase. Orders placed on Friday will most often ship out Monday morning.

PLEASE NOTE:
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, you may experience slight delays in shipment and delivery.

Most orders are shipped via USPS. Very large or heavy orders may ship via UPS. Please be sure that you have provided us with a correct and verified address, otherwise we cannot be held responsible for packages that are not delivered.

Most of our items ship Priority Mail (1-3 day delivery). Smaller items, under 1 lb ship First-Class Mail (2-5 business days). Orders outside of the U.S.A. are shipped First-Class International or Priority Mail International, if over 4 pounds.

While we must use some bubble wrap to keep your ceramics safe, the packing peanuts we use are made from organic potato starch. They decompose in water leaving no toxic waste. If you receive any other type of packing material, it has been recycled from our wholesale suppliers.

Also, please note that we do not include receipts in any shipments unless otherwise requested. We will send you a shipping notification which is your digital receipt, containing: product, price, shipping address and tracking number. This reduces paper waste and keeps the price concealed from potential gift recipients.

We cannot be held liable for packages that are delivered to the wrong address. Please be sure to double check your shipping address before placing your order.

If your package is lost in the mail or damaged we will file a claim for you. Unfortunately the insurance policy states we must wait 20 days in order to file a lost claim, in case the package turns up. Damaged items will be replaced or refunded as soon as possible. Please keep your damaged item and all packaging materials, as we will need this evidence to file a claim.

PLEASE NOTE:
Once the tracking states that your package was "DELIVERED", we can no longer be held liable. It is the buyers responsibility to call their local post office and/or file a theft report.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that the clay and glaze colors you see online will vary according to each computer monitor. We use a variety of clays which vary in color. Also, all of the ceramic pieces in our shop are made by hand, not a machine. We strive to make beautiful pieces, but subtle "imperfections" are to be expected. We do not consider these defects, but rather a sign that your piece was made by a human. We do however list some of our pieces as seconds when warranted, for example if a lid doesn't fit quite right or if there is a noticeable issue with the glaze. Please read through our listings thoroughly, and feel free to contact us if you would like a more detailed description of an item before ordering.

PRE-ORDER/MADE TO ORDER policy:
When combining an order of in stock items with any pre-order or made to order items, your entire order will ship together when all items are in stock and ready to ship.
