Repeat customer! This trinket dish is completely adorable with the delicate bird perched on a small leaf branch. The color is vivid -- a blue turquoise. It is of an excellent size for holding jewelry. Thanks.

I'm always happy to do custom text on a dish. Hope this modern family loves their new dish!
I'm always happy to do custom requests for clients. This couple is getting married in New Orleans so we changed the heart to a fleur de lis.
Hope these gals love their new trinket dishes! I hand form each dish and flower making them one of a kind.

About

My Dream Came True!

Recently I found a notebook from college. I was starting a MFA in Education and was miserable. In the notebook I found sketches & notes, but on the very last page I found "all I want in life is to be married with children and have my own ceramics studio"...the chills ran down my back- I have all of that! wow!

    I'm a mom, wife, artist, cook, housekeeper, gardener, handy woman and much much more. I have a BFA in ceramics from Mass College of Art. My lovely studio is in my home so I'm able to work at home and be close to my kiddos. I AM SO VERY LUCKY!

Hello! Thanks for browsing my Etsy shop- I hope you found something you can't live without!

So a little about me....my name is Tanya and I wear many hats - wife, mom, artist, gardener, oh and maid. My ceramic studio is in my home so I'm able to be with my little guy and gal as much as possible and do some laundry while I make some dishes. I love what I do and I think that shows in my artwork. I'm very lucky to have had my long time dream come true of having a family and a ceramics studio! (I wrote it in a journal in 1998 and found it recently- shivers went down my back when I read it!)

A few random things about me.....I love antiques, zinnia flowers, beach glass, crystal clear blue ocean water, starfish, coconut almond bar ice cream, crossing things off my "to do" lists. I hate hairs on a bar of soap, whistling, ironing, drivers who don't use their turn signals, bean sprouts, white rice, not getting enough sleep.

I have been getting my hands dirty in clay since 1996! Wow how time flies when you are having fun. I have a BFA in ceramics and a wonderful studio where I personally hand build all of my ceramics. I take great pride in all of my pieces and will not sell anything that doesn't meet my high standards. I worked in customer service for years so I know how important it is for a business so I hope I can meet and exceed your expectations.

Payment
I accept Etsy direct checkout, Etsy gift cards, PayPal, but remember you do not need a PayPal account to use PayPal. If you make a purchase by mistake let me know and I will correct it. I ask that you order a "reserved" listing that I create just for you within 24hrs of getting the link.
Shipping
Shipping is via USPS-priority and first class mail domestic and international via regular first class mail. If you need something quicker let me know and I will try make arrangements to meet your needs.

The shipping times listed are taken from USPS.com and I do not guarantee these shipping times. I ship to the ship to address provided in Etsy "ship to" in checkout. Unfortunately I cannot be responsible for lost or misdirected packages. If you'd like insurance on your package please let me know and I will get you a price.

International packages cannot be tracked. Also some countries have delays going through customs. The USPS.com says international regular 1st class mail is 14+ days. Also international packages may incur taxes- these are your responsibility. International shipments might be held at your local post office for you to pickup.

Obviously my pieces are ceramic and somewhat fragile, so breakage during shipping will be dealt with it on case by case basis.

ALSO NOTE I DO NOT SHIP TO: CHINA, TAIWAN, VIETNAM, INDONESIA, THAILAND, PHILIPPINES, MALAYSIA (sorry)
Refunds and Exchanges
One happy customer will make many more happy customers so if you aren't 100% satisfied with your purchase let me know within 3 days of receiving your order and I will do my best to make it right!

My work is hand made so there will be variations in shape, color, design placement/layout- each piece is ONE OF A KIND! Also please remember monitors may alter colors slightly. Clay is a natural material so there are slight variations in the composition of the clay meaning the clay could be a little creamier or whiter from batch to batch.

Custom orders are final sale, but please contact me within 3 days of receipt of your order if you aren't happy with it so we can discuss what your options are. I'm not responsible for incorrect information selected at checkout or provided for customization (i.e. mis-spellings, color or design choice).

If you place a custom order and need to cancel it please contact me within 24hrs of ordering. I recommend visiting the front page of my shop or contacting me via "convo" to see what my current ship date is before placing your custom order.
Additional policies and FAQs
I personally hand make each custom item so this takes time. There is a process the pieces go thru and depending on my firing schedule your item may ship in as little as 2 weeks or as many as 5+ weeks. As noted in all custom listings - view my shop announcement on my shop's front page or send me a convo or email to see what my current/accurate shipping schedule is for custom work before placing your order.

I am absolutely open to custom orders...see a design, but want a different color let me know. Want a dish with your name or a date on it? There will be fees for customization as that means I need to make a whole new dish to meet your needs. I only add color to the front of the dish. If you ask for something on the back it will be scribed into the clay- the same way I sign each piece. Also I'm always open to new ideas so don't hold back! I look forward to making your custom piece!
