100% Handmade

Each dish is created entirely by hand. Computers are not utilized, therefore, minor variations occur are part of the charm of hand-crafting. There is an area at the bottom of each glazed dish that is the natural matte clay finish. This prevents the dish from melting onto the kiln shelf during the firing process. 

 Creation Times
Every item description in our shop lists the "timing” for that specific design. This is the time it takes for your order to be crafted or prepared for shipment. Serving platters, trays, bowls and designs with custom text, may take up to three weeks to be handmade and kiln fired. This ensures that the products are made correctly. This is noted on the item page. “Crafting Time” does not include shipping to your location. All timing is in business days. Our studio is not open on holidays or on weekends.

Expedited Order
Sometimes we are able to offer Expedited Crafting on certain product designs. This option will appear in the drop-down menu of item options on the item page. Expedited Crafting means we will craft your order in 8-10 business days or less. Rush orders are not possible with kiln fired ceramic pottery.
