I love these mugs. They have quality and character, and they're also a great size. I am giving them away as an Xmas gift but I really want to keep them for myself. I will continue to revisit this shop to see the unique items that have been added to the inventory.

About

i think i'm most excited when i have a lump of clay sitting in front of me, and i look at it and know it will become this physical, tangible thing.

i am an object maker, living and working in omaha, nebraska. i create one of a kind ceramic vessels using wheel thrown, slip cast and hand built methods. i use found objects or handmade objects for my slip casting, and my boyfriend makes the plaster molds for me.

i fell in love with objects at a young age. i used to walk into my older sister's room and say, "is there anything you don't want? like, anything. i'll take anything." and i would go to her looking for whatever she would be willing to give me. so this love for 'stuff' has never left me.

i owe it all to yoshi ikeda, my professor at kansas state university. yoshi had a tough love approach to teaching, and he brought a lot of humor to my schooling. during my second semester of ceramics, he saw my first project and said, "hey, that's pretty good" and his assistant turned to me with wide eyes and said, "you better go change your major because he never says that!". i went to my advisor right after class to go change my major to ceramics.

yoshi retired the year after i graduated, and before he and his wife moved, he gave me his wheel that he had made pots on for more than 30 years, and a small kiln. he said, "emily, i would only give this to you. you worked hard."

nothing makes me happier than creating with my own hands. i think i'm most excited when i have a lump of clay sitting in front of me, and i look at it and know it will become this physical, tangible thing. an object that does something for someone else, and holds value to its owner. i hope my ceramics become important, heirloom-quality objects, items that hold significance and get handed down to other loved ones.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
no objects will be produced or shipped until full payment is received.
Shipping
most objects being shipped in the continental united states will be shipped via usps (parcel post) unless otherwise specified.

the current shipping fees at $8-$10 for one item may seem a little bit high, but i assure you, after the usps quoted price (determined by weight & destination) and a small fee for packaging materials the listed shipping price is reasonable.

need your item quick? shoot me a message and i'll be sure to rush the delivery for a small extra charge to cover shipping costs.

overseas shipping:
because of the fragile nature of my work, and the weight of the shipment shipping overseas can be expensive. USPS does not take responsibility for shipments sent overseas. FedEx and UPS provide coverage for their international shipments, but are usually twice as expensive as USPS. if you would like to pay the extra charges to have items shipped overseas, please contact me before purchasing the object and i will add on the additional shipping charges.

*if listed shipping addresses are incorrect and the package is returned to me, i will be in contact with you to find an alternate address, however, you will be charged an additional fee for shipping the package twice.

*if you have overpaid for shipping, i will refund you the difference via paypal.
Refunds and Exchanges
should any damage occur during shipping, please contact me within one week of receiving your object with photos documenting the damage. i will be happy to replace your object for free.

if you simply are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact me within one week of receiving your object and i'll be happy to work something out with you. i want happy customers.

shipping charges will not be refunded.
Additional policies and FAQs
i accept most custom orders, however there are requests that i cannot complete.

any object with gold, silver or copper leaf is NOT food safe. handle these items with care, they are delicate.

i work with wholesale and consignment buyers as well, feel free to contact me about larger orders. emily [!at] theobjectenthusiast.com
