All of the work you see here has been handmade on the potters wheel and fired in an electric kiln, by myself and my one studio assistant. Some of the pieces are already made and ready to ship, others are made to order and will take a few weeks. I will specify at the top of each listing. DISREGARD THE "IN STOCK" NUMBER.

If you see a design you like but are interested in another glaze color, let me know. Any design you see in the "Sold" section that is not currently listed can usually be ordered.

If you would like more information or are interested in being on my mailing list for sample sales at my Bay Area studio (3x a year), check out my website at sarapaloma.com.

Q: Is Sara Paloma Pottery a GREEN business?
A: Its always debatable, because you can always do more... but here's why I say YES.
* I work at home, alone= no gas used getting to work by me.
* My work has a "high-fired" stoneware look, but actually is Cone5 mid-range.
* My glazes are mostly non toxic (always food safe), and the toxic stuff I do use is in very small amounts.
* All Packing material is made from recycled material (tissue, kraft paper, bags
for sales..) with the exception of bubble wrap, which again, I get second hand
whenever possible.
* Announcements for sales and shows are sent via e-mail, no paper.
* All paper used for this business is made from recycled material.

Shipping
I SHIP TO MOST COUNTRIES- IF YOU DON'T SEE YOUR LOCATION LISTED, PLEASE CONVO ME WITH YOUR ADDRESS FOR A SHIPPING QUOTE.

* As stated in the "Green?" section, I try to use all re-used/recycled shipping material with the exception of bubble wrap, so your order will arrive clean and well wrapped,
but the box itself may be re-used. If your order is a gift, please let me know so I will be sure to use a new box.
