Announcement   In a world where we are sometimes drowning in unwanted "stuff", I believe in intentional consumerism, when objects bringing joy are chosen with care and used in everyday life.
I make (very) small batch ceramics and enjoy every bit of it. Clay awakened my soul and made me realize how beautiful life is. So, thank YOU for visiting!

Absolutely beautiful!! Started using it the day we took it out of the box! Very well packaged too, it shipped across the country and through customs and not even a tiny tent on the box.

About

Art in daily life

Clay crossed my path in 2013 and I fell in love.
It changed my life and made me see the beauty around me. I used to live in survival mode, at the point of a gun (figuratively), until I couldn't do it anymore. Art brings joy to my life. It made me slow down.
Every time I worked with clay, I got centered. Pottery gave me the mental space where I could hear my heart and my soul. When my hands were shaping clay, I was in fact shaping my new life as a ceramic artist.

Pottery is the perfect outlet for my overflowing creativity, and it has functionality, which to me, is really important.

I like the idea of using art in daily life, of the life of a pot. The pot is a servant, it brings food and beverages, it showcases flowers or fruits. The pot is a vessel – and I feel this way about my body too. Transient in time, bringing beauty, but bound to break and die. The error would be to not use the vessel. Using the vessel is the only way to make sense of its temporary existence.

Chosen objects don’t clutter your world. Unloved objects do. Chosen objects can bring joy and a sense of connection to the earth. The trick is to remain unattached to objects. To respect the transient aspect of all things material.

I believe deeply in art and creativity as tools to maintain a healthy brain. It changes brainwaves from beta (stress, vigilance) to alpha (calmness and access to your inner world and subconscious). We are all creative. Some think that they are unworthy of their creativity, and some decide to completely shut this aspect of their humanity because they judge their art negatively. Living creatively is freeing and highly spiritual.

People who buy my pottery are often makers themselves, dreamers, creative, nostalgic, empowered, poetry and nature lovers, and a little special (!)... They appreciate handmade functional objects. They see value in “perfect imperfection”, in the connection between the maker and the user, and they enjoy the life of the object. They feel that buying handmade creates a sense of community and humanity that would be subtly lost otherwise.

I now fully embrace the handmade process and its traces. It means that mugs are sometimes not perfectly round, that my pots have a rustic look, a handmade feel, and that I am not a robot.

Thanks for visiting and God bless!

*** I WILL REFUND YOU SHIPPING OVERAGES >3.00$CAD.***

*** INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING (outside North America) does NOT provide a tracking number. If you would like a tracking number, please contact me for a shipping upgrade (usually it's double the baseline shipping price)*** Please be patient - shipping to Europe is 2-6 weeks. Shipping to Australia is a "good" 6 weeks! Once the parcel has left my hands, I or Canada Post cannot track it down. Thank you for your patience on your order!

If you live relatively close to Alberta, usually shipping is much less. Please convo be if you think shipping is way overestimated or if you have questions.

I will pack your purchase very well, usually I double box your order so it reaches you all safe and sound. So far, so good... knock wood!

In the unlikely event of damage from shipping, please notify me within 3 days (14 days by law for the EU residents) of receiving your item to discuss replacing the item or for refund. Please note that shipping costs are non-refundable and are the buyer's responsibilities. Packages have up to 100$CAD insurance coverage.

I am not responsible for delays caused by customs or postal services. Shipping to the USA is usually much shorter (7-10 days or less).

Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unhappy with your item (s), please notify me within 3 days of reception (14 days for EU countries). Please do not send item(s) back without messaging me first.
We can discuss refund, or replacement.

Please note that shipping costs are non-refundable and are the buyer's responsibilities, except for EU countries, where the initial shipping costs will be refunded once the item is returned in good condition.
If your item arrives in pieces (broke during shipping), contact me within 3 days of reception. For a refund or a store credit, I need pictures of the item as it arrived IN THE ORIGINAL SHIPPING BOX.
