TazChessie Artwork

I am recently retired from the Army. After years working in the medical field as an Audiologist (both civilian and Active Duty Army) I've decided to take a serious hobby and make it a business.

This decision was pushed to the front by the military deciding I was too sick to continue to serve (that I can no longer perform my military duties). I decided that at this stage in my life I need to do something that makes ME happy, something that I enjoy. Even a bad day shooting photos or working glass/clay is a way better day than a good day at the office.

I first opened a photography shop on Etsy and in the Columbus, GA area where I mainly do landscapes and fine art photography. I do some portrait photography as well. I decided I needed a way to sell some of the items I was making that did not fall under photography so I opened TazChessie Artwork.

My glass and pottery pieces are fired at my home studio as well as Britt David Studio which is part of Columbus, GA Parks Dept and is open to the public. I make, design, decorate, paint/glaze, etc all my own pieces.

I hope you enjoy my images/items as much as I enjoyed bringing them to you.

"International customers are responsible for all fees associated with shipping to their respective countries.

The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; I have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond my original delivery estimates. All international orders will have full value declared on customs forms - no exceptions."

Due to the large number of packages being sent during the holiday season delivery can take 3 weeks or longer. If you need your package faster than this please convo me so we can work out the best way to get to you in time.
