Announcement    The Squids are Baack! New designs for 2022 include seahorses, mermaids and other new surprises. The new kiln arrived on Earth Day, April 22, so May will bring lots of new pieces- the shelves are already full. Thank you for your past purchases and kind words. Enjoy!

I am happy to answer questions or send additional photos, and I really appreciate your Etsy review on purchases. I use recycled materials like shredded junk mail and previously used packaging for shipping to be as eco-friendly as possible.

NOTE: I can only do holds or reserves on items for 24 hours, due to limited availability and high demand. Sorry, due to new and complex 2022 rules,
I CAN NO LONGER SHIP to Germany.

SHIPPING: If you are out of the U.S.A. and don't find a SHIPPING OPTION listed, please send me a convo message and I'll give you a shipping cost. Keep in mind that pottery is heavy- one mug with packaging generally weighs at least 1.5 to 2 lbs. Larger or multiple pieces are more. There is a 4 lb. limit for USPS regular mail before the costs jumps a lot. For a shipping option OTHER than Priority Mail, check the choices and you should be able to choose a different one, or MESSAGE me BEFORE buying for options.

About Skybirdarts

Sales 390
On Etsy since 2008

Art is my religion, (my gift, my safety net, and my joy.)

Someone told me about Etsy. First I became a member, just to buy great hand-made items and find inspiration.

I took an 8-year break from pottery until 2022- not so much by choice, but because of a major move. I am so happy to get back to creating with clay again! It all started back in 2007 when I made a couple of specialty squid/octopus mugs for my daughter and her friend, and decided to post a few on Etsy. I suddenly had more and more requests and the shop was off and running. I have expanded the offerings to include many more themes and inventive designs.

I have a studio in my home, and there's always something new in the works! When I look back at how many pieces I've sold on Etsy, I'm actually quite stunned. People always like to ask, "How long did this piece take to make?" My answer, "About 45 years," which is true!

I have enjoyed connecting with other artists here, and appreciate the many talented and creative people who are finding markets for their work on ETSY. The world is truly our marketplace here- I have sent pieces to many countries since the shop opened in 2008.

    Nature-lover, Tree-Hugger, still have a sense of wonder at the diversity and beauty of life on this dear planet. I hope my art inspires, comforts and adds a touch of joy- like a warm mug that feels good in your hand. Be well, be kind.

Shop policies

Last updated on May 9, 2022
SKYBIRDARTS: Offers original art, whimsical jewelry, and some vintage. PRICES reflect the amount of time to create a piece, plus materials, plus size, design and complexity. Everything here is designed and made by me, the artist. My work represents years of practice, education and experimentation, all done with joy in the creative spirit. Some works are visionary, some are whimsical or humorous, and all are meant to inspire or be beautiful. If you have questions about anything, please ask. I hope you find as much joy in looking as I did in creating!

All art work is copyrighted to the artist and may not be reproduced by ANY means without the express written permission of the artist. Thank you.

Returns and exchange details
Communication is everything, so please do so. I will respond promptly. Most of my items are one-of-a-kind, so keep this in mind. If you want to return an item, it must be properly packaged (note the way it was packaged when you got it,) and shipped back within 7 days, in the same condition as when I sent it. I am exceedingly careful with packaging. The post office requires evidence in the form of photos of the broken item and damaged packaging. If something is broken in shipping to you, please notify me immediately. I will either issue you a credit or refund, or partial refund should you decide to keep the item, depending on the circumstances.
Payment
PAY PAL and ETSY DIRECT CHECKOUT
I accept credit card payments through Etsy.
For Pay Pal- you do NOT have to have an account with Paypal, just click the Paypal button when you go through the checkout and look for the link to pay with your credit card!

Once payment is received your purchase will be shipped in the next couple of business days.

If you have any questions concerning an item, a policy, or anything else about my shop please feel free to convo me.
Shipping
Prices listed for shipping are for U.S.P.S. Priority Mail. If you prefer regular 1st class (snail) mail, send me a convo message before purchase, and I will adjust the shipping amount down. For overseas (and small items,) I prefer to use snail mail, since the cost is much less. Larger, heavier items can be shipped using the carrier of your choice. I generally ship the next business day after purchase.

Because stoneware is quite heavy and there is a 4 lb. limit per box before the price goes up considerably, I will sometimes ship in more than one box if you order several items. I will do refunds if your shipping is considerably less than what you paid. I also insure using ShipSaver through Etsy.

Most international parcels take about 2 weeks using regular 1st class mail, but I have had packages make it to New Zealand in under a week.

NOTE- If you are out of the U.S.A. and don't find a SHIPPING OPTION listed, please send me a convo message and I'll give you a shipping cost.
I sometimes reuse boxes for shipping, so let me know if you prefer a new box. I can also gift-wrap at your request. Thank You!
Additional policies and FAQs
I do accept custom orders with the caveat that there may be a waiting period due to the fact that I have other responsibilities, As always, ASK!
Namaste.
