Heirlooms for Modern Living

Pigeon Toe is a new perspective on the beauty inherent in every day. We explore the aesthetic potential of objects that populate and create our lives; we accentuate function and redefine form. Each piece that leaves our north Portland studio is alive with the joy and vision of its makers, the result of a process that begins with imagination and insight, takes shape through skilled hands, and is fulfilled by you. You will know a Pigeon Toe piece by its purpose, you will remember it for its presence, and you will love it for what it transcends.

Welcome to the Pigeon Toe™ fine print section. We are a small operation dedicated to your satisfaction with our work. We hope that you love your purchase and that the entire process is a smooth one.

We do our very best to produce consistent work. However, as each piece is made by hand there will be naturally occurring variations in each piece – making each and every one a unique treasure. If you’re not into that, this probably isn’t the pottery for you.

We’ll handle the claim with the shipping service, and happily make you a new item, or issue you store credit – whatever turns that frown upside down, as they say.

DEFECTS: Every piece is inspected for flaws before leaving our studio, but we are only human.

PRODUCT CARE All of our ceramics are glazed with certified food safe and lead free glazes. Our pieces are microwave , oven and dishwasher safe- although we recommend hand washing you items to best preserve the work, and avoid prolonged soaking in water if the item is unglazed. Dirt and stains on unglazed surfaces can be removed with a scrub brush and a bit of baking soda. Metal marks from silverware (due to the ceramic being harder than the metal) can be easily removed with Bar Keeper’s Friend . Do not expose the wares to sudden, dramatic shifts in temperature (e.g. placed into a hot degree oven from room temperature). All of our work is made with high-quality porcelain. All products are handcrafted. There may be some slight variation in color, texture, and finish. These are not considered flaws.
