It is a beautiful way to make sure my cat stays with us in our home. I loved the gold stamp option and even more that it was on sale at the time of purchase. It was made exactly as I wanted, and the seller even messaged me beforehand noting that one of the options I chose (a darker infill color) may not look so the best so she helped me choose another color. That was very appreciated since this will be in our home on display for many years. In terms of sizing, I ordered the small and while our cat was only 6-7 lbs, we used Aquamation for her (which results in more ashes) and it is a tight squeeze in there. For a normal cremation a small size would have had plenty of room. Very satisfied with the craftmanship and care put into these urns.

About

vitrifiedstudio, handmade modern pottery by Shelley Martin. From my hands to yours.

vitrifiedstudio is a small ceramics studio located in Portland Oregon. I have recently also opened a storefront gallery at 5001 NE 30th Ave at Alberta Street in Portland Oregon. All of the work is all low production, artist made, studio ceramics. It is an alternative to the production work you find in other studios, workshops, and factories. Each piece found in the etsy shop is unique, considered, and made only using my hands, a few simple tools and the pottery wheel.

My designs for vitrifiedstudio evolve naturally, and I hope to constantly be growing as a maker and sharing this process online for everyone to see. I share photos and videos of this process of creating ceramics and running a small home based business on instagram, username @vitrifiedstudio. I also announce sales, giveways and coupon codes on social media for fans and followers only.

This etsy shop holds only my custom urns, vases and bottles. For the complete collection, including dish sets, corked containers, mugs, etc. visit my website. www.vitrifiedstudio.com

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I have many custom listings shown in my etsy shop. feel free to contact me before you order if you have an idea for a custom item that is similar to what is shown, but different. I love trying new modifications on my listings. I have a listing within my shop where you can add special request additions, and you can see the pricing for each of these additions. https://www.etsy.com/listing/286676961/special-request-additions-and-upgrades

Sizing details

All sizes are shown in the item details page of each listing. Please take a look there if you have questions about what size to order, or what the dimensions of a size are. All of the pieces are handmade without a form or mold, so my sizes do tend to vary slightly beyond what is listed. My clays all have different shrinkage rates and shrink in different ways so I have a hard time being exact with my dimensions.

Care instructions

All of the pieces are microwave and dishwasher safe, but as they are handmade ceramics made in very limited quantities I highly recommend that you take care when using and cleaning your pieces. The microwave is tough on all ceramics, and overtime microwaving you piece will make it (and all handmade ceramics) more brittle. Also the heating element in your dishwasher can get very hot, so I recommend placing the pieces away from the heating element to avoid thermal shock.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Generally all items are shipped in a cardboard box, usually filled with composting starch peanuts, and sometimes bubble wrap if needed. I do not include receipts or packing slips with the order, please access yours online if you need it.
I offer gift wrapping and custom gift notes as an add on item found in my special request additions listing located in my shop. if you are sending the item as a gift, i suggest adding a custom note to it so the recipient will know who the gift is from.

Wholesale availability

vitrifiedstudio ceramics are available wholesale, please contact me directly for information at vitrifiedstudio@gmail.com. The custom pieces are not available as wholesale items, I have a special line sheet of wholesale items.

returns or issues with custom made items

If you have an issue with your custom order, please contact me directly. the custom orders all are made for you and do take time (sometimes more time than shown in the listing if there is an issue with the process). I am happy to give refunds as needed if there is an issue with your piece, but please contact me directly to discuss. Generally I dont want the piece sent back to me, but I will work with you to remake the piece or offer a refund as needed. Please contact me directly via a convo if you have any questions

Imperfections and Delays

As all of the pieces in my shop are handmade, and most listings are custom listings where I make the piece from the start specifically for the customer, there can be imperfections and delays. These are one of a kind, custom, made to order pieces that are all made from a one person studio. Pieces might have small imperfections on them, and sometimes there will be delays. Sometimes I need to remake a piece due to unexpected events that happen in the drying or firing process, and there will be a delay on your order. Other times there will be an imperfection like a small surface blemish on the underside from the drying process, or a small fleck of color falling on the piece from the atmosphere in the kiln.
