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.

I love, love, LOVE my zombie mugs! I had bought some earlier, which I used all the time, and I wanted to add some smaller ones to my collection. I reached out through Etsy, and Cris was happy to make them for me. They are just the size I was hoping for, and they are awesome! I really like all the products from this vendor, and the custom order process is really easy and personal, too.
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 (www.instagram.com/skeletaldropkick) and all around the world.
Cris spent 4 semesters learning the basics of ceramics at a local college then went on to spend the next 6 years growing and developing with the help of her loyal, amazing and generally awesome customers.
Marshall spends most of his time playing and sleeping. Sometimes both at the same time. He keeps Cris company while she throws and builds.

She may look terrible, but she is actually quite beautiful....
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
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 :)
I use USPS unless a different carrier is requested. I have found them to be just fine and also the least expensive. I ship Priority mail, so all pieces under $50 are insured and I insure any purchase over $50 for no extra fee.
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
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.
Additional policies and FAQs
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.
