100% handmade ceramics...from me to you.
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; from the exposed raw clay body, to the interior smooth glaze, to the cork which tops each jar and the candle wax that fills each bowl. These pieces are meant to be picked up, touched, and experienced.

Paulova Ceramics are entirely handmade by me, in my Portland, Oregon home studio.

All orders are shipped via USPS and are fully insured. Please be sure that you have provided me with a confirmed address, otherwise I cannot be held responsible for packages that are not delivered.
To keep shipping costs low for my customers, most orders ship Parcel Post (2-8 business days). I will automatically upgrade to Priority Mail when it is similarly priced. Packages under 13 oz 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 I must use some bubble wrap to keep your ceramics safe, the packing peanuts I use are made from organic starch. They decompose in water leaving no toxic waste : )
Also, please note that I do not include receipts in any shipments unless otherwise requested. I 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 gift recipients.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will accept replacements or refunds on any items that are damaged during shipping. Please notify me within 48 hours of receipt and include a photo of the damaged item. I will cover the shipping cost on replaced item(s).
I will accept exchanges or refunds if you are not happy with your purchase. Please notify me within 48 hours of receipt. Buyer is responsible for the return shipping charges. The exchange or refund will be processed once I receive the item and ensure it is in its original condition. I cannot be 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.
