Announcement   My ceramics are not gallery or museum-quality, they are home-quality. They are strong and sturdy. Each design is original, each mug is unique. You won’t find the fine-art, froo-froo here, only real ceramics, built for daily use.

Monsters built from years of post-apocalyptic angst and turmoil, with cute little tails and fangs.

Skeletal Dropkick is a small, one person studio, nestled next to the Pacific Ocean near San Francisco. It is owned, designed and managed by Cris, a veteran monster maker of many years. Skeletal Dropkick believes ceramic dinnerware should be used daily, especially if it is made of monster. Inspired by old monster movies, the creatures of the deep, myths, legends and crypotzoology, Skeletal Dropkick has an eclectic mix of monsters and creatures.
Skeletal dropkick's studio consists of one wheel, one kiln and a buncha handmade glazes. Seriously small craft and low production, the pieces are made from a blob of clay to a finished monster by a single person. Everything is fired to Cone 10, making them strong, study and built for everyday use.
Cris' good friend, Furious Panda and her brethren (sistren?) can be seen on Instagram ( and all around the world.

Hello and welcome to Skeletaldropkick. I am a mom and student who has fallen for ceramics. I have equipped myself with an electric kiln and a wheel and am loving both. I am very happy to take a special request. Please be aware that since my work is all handmade, I cannot make 2 things look exactly alike, I am afraid Target is far better at that than I. I can, however make many similar things if you are looking for a set. Please allow 3-4 weeks for me to finish a special order, ceramics is a rather slow process.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
I accept Paypal and, in special circumstances, a personal check (which has to clear before I ship the piece).
If you want me to reserve something for you, please let me know when you expect to pay for it. I expect payment for reserved items within 3 days.
One should really submit payment within 3 days of "buying" something just out of common courtesy. If it has been more than 3 days, I reserve the right to cancel the sale. Of course, those that pay right away are golden :)
My shipping prices are from the west coast to the east coast. If you live closer to California then the east coast, I will refund any shipping difference over $1.
I use USPS unless a different carrier is requested. I have found them to be just fine and also the least expensive. I insure any purchase over $50 for no extra fee. If you want insurance on anything under that, please let me know in the message to the buyer space on the payment page.
Shipping upgrades are always welcome. My costs for shipping are actual, so I would have to adjust shipping price to match the upgrade.
I package my art very very carefully using recycled materials.
Items are usually shipped the day after payment is received, if there will be a delay, I will let you know.
I am happy to ship anywhere in the world as well. It just takes too long to put all the countries in the shipping fields and then find the all shipping costs. ANY BOX OVER 4LBS out of country WILL BE CHARGED EXTRA!! This is just how the USPS works, sorry about that.
Just convo me and I will find you a shipping quote.
Refunds and Exchanges
If an item is damaged in transit, please send me a picture of the damage and I will make you a replacement as close to the original as I can get.
Right now I do not offer an exchange or return policy, but if you are unhappy for any reason please let me know, I am sure we can work something out.
Orders over $50 get insured at no cost to you, but I will need any broken pieces to be mailed back before I make new ones or give you store credit.
Additional policies and FAQs
I accept wholesale requests, but they can require up to 3 months to fulfill.

Bulk purchases will receive a discount or an extra little goody thrown in the box...
Please feel free to convo me if you have any questions at all.
