I make each piece to order, please allow me four to five weeks to make and ship your purchase to you. If you are looking for an item to ship right away, visit my etsy shop, or visit a local retailer listed in the "where to buy" section.
Every piece in my collection is handmade with care, starting with the mixing of the porcelain slip. The porcelain is my own formula which I have tinkered with over the years. It is a high fire slip, which means that the pieces are extremely durable while remaining thin and light.
Because I finish each edge by hand, every piece develops a unique personality as it moves through the firings. Bowls that come out of the same mold will shift slightly in the high fire to create unique, one of a kind shapes. They stack inside one another, but not perfectly.
I also mix my own glazes, each is non-toxic and food safe. I reclaim all my materials, to avoid clay particles contaminating our drinking water.
The images are applied after the glaze firing, and the pieces are fired one more time. The image melts into the glaze, creating a food-safe surface. My pieces are dishwasher safe, but I don't recommend using porcelain in the microwave.
As a graphic designer, typography is my specialty, and applying letterforms to my ceramics brings me immense joy. Type and ceramics just belong together, don't you think? I love working with clients to create a unique wedding, baby, holiday or birthday gift. Please email me if you would like to discuss a personalized piece. For a few examples, please click here.
I ship with UPS in U.S. only, and each package is insured for the purchase value. I pack each piece safely, double boxing larger items. If you are unhappy with your purchase, we can discuss an exchange or refund, and how to return the item the safest way possible. You will be responsible for return shipping charges.
