I received my order today and it's everything I thought it would be! The little bowls and lids are just perfect and very well made. I love the color and the natural speckles throughout. The lids fit perfectly on the bowls. I had my eye on these bowls about a year ago and just when I decided to buy, the seller took a break. I've patiently watched for her shop to reopen and was thrilled to buy this set and wait for her to make the custom set for me. I received shipping notice May 14 and the bowls arrived today, May 24, from Italy to the USA. They were well packaged and arrived safe and sound. I would gladly buy from toscAnna again, her work is beautiful.

About

Traces of fire - wood-fired ceramics

toscAnna comes from Anna and the italian word for Tuscany - Toscana.

I moved to Tuscany in 1989 and since there I am creating ceramic pots. In 1991 my husband and I built our small wood-fired kiln.
Wood firing is the oldest firing method. Since humans first began to understand how fire hardened clay, we have been making ceramics, both in pits and in wood kilns. Now, with so many fuel options available to the potter, wood-fired kilns are more of a choice than a necessity. While wood firing isn’t easy and needs a lot of time and work, the results are incomparable. The work in wood kilns reveals the story of the firing, with pieces showing ash deposits and the path of the flame through the kiln. We choose the wood-firing specialy using the unglazed parts of the pots as a unique decorative style.
The clay used for the ceramics comes from England; although you can find a lot of clay in Italy, but there is none for high temperature - stoneware - and in particular for wood-firing.

Everything in my shop is totally handmade. I don't use molds or something else. The pots are thrown on the wheel. The food safe glazes are made in the workshop; all pots are done with love and care.

My ceramics are characterized by functionality; I love to cook using my wonderful ceramics and cleaning them in the dishwasher daily. They do their job and at the same time they look beautiful.

Some years ago I created my first necklace with my handmade ceramic beads .....and loved it.

I am just creating ceramics that I love...... and want to share this love with you :))

QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR ORDER?
Please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

Since each item is handmade, there will be slight variations in form and finish, these are meant to be enjoyed!

Items are very carefully wrapped and packed, and damage during shipment is rare. If you receive a broken item, please contact immediately with a PICTURE of the damaged item for a replacement.

Please note: the jewelry and dishes are robust but it can break if dropped on a hard surface.
I recommend to keep the jewelry in the separate box when not worn.

Etsy and Paypal keep your payment information secure. I don't receive your credit card information.

PLEASE note, if the shipping costs exceed the actual shipping costs (by more than 0.50€), you will be refunded the overage; this especially for multiple items.

PROCESSING TIME:
I will do the shipping within 3-5 working days by the Italian Post using the "International Postamail" (Posta Italiana Internazionale).
This type of shipping, which is the cheapest, can take up to 10-21 BUSINESS days for delivery - depends on where are you and does NOT include a tracking code.
If you purchase a piece of my jewelry which costes over 100€ there is still provided registered mail.

If you want a traceable shipping or faster shipping or any shipping upgrade please contact me BEFORE you make the purchase!

Upgrade shipping to registered or insured mail costs more, but provides a tracking number and requires signature confirmation.
Additional costs for registered or upgrade shipping has to pay the customer.

In case of damage that may occur during transit due to external services (postal and / or courier), send me a photo documentation and we solve the problem together!
Additional policies and FAQs
Remind that my items are handmade and no two are alike!
All pieces are done by hand, fired at very high temperature. The stoneware pieces fired in a wood-fired kiln, no two pieces are identical. That’s the beauty of the product, makes it lively and they are considered as an object of art.

It would be a pleasure to do reserves and I am thrilled to design an object for you using my stoneware and porcelain clay and workshop technique.

I will only use your shipping and billing address, and contact information
- To communicate with you about your order
- To fulfill your order
- For legal reasons (like paying taxes)
