- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Each month I am going to attempt at creating a limited edition/numbered print from my home studio. I will make at least 11, as 11 is my personal power number. Each print is made on 100% rag, acid-free semi-smooth, vellum surface with a substantial feel. 90 lb (245 gsm) white paper.
For March Ive split my offering for prints into two. This listing show cases one of them: Mushroom buddy is purple topped just like me; its my birthday month. Hang this cutie in your favorite space.
Each is signed, numbered and dated.
I accept payments via credit card, debit card and Etsy gift cards through the Etsy website. All CA orders are subject to CA tax.
I used to accept PayPal but because I offer pipes from time to time, PayPal has decided to revoke themselves as a form of payment. Lame.
Custom orders must be paid in full up front. Once payment is received, custom orders take 6 weeks; 8-10 weeks during high volume or holidays.
I use USPS Flat Rate Priority Shipping for all orders. For jewelry, I offer First Class and Priority. I always try to reuse packing materials (bubble wrap, air bubble packets, newspaper, tissue paper) when I can. I ensure I wrap my items very well! I also include a receipt, business card, thank you note, and perhaps a little something extra ^_^
All orders, please allow 3-5 days after an item has been purchased to ship it (1-2 weeks during high volume) unless that item is a custom order, or I am on Etsy vacation. All U.S. orders are sent using USPS 3-day Priority Mail with delivery confirmation, as well as $100 insurance on your items.
For International Shipping), I offer First Class and Priority. Prices for International shipping are FIRST CLASS prices.
If you are a LOCAL! Use code LOCALLOVE at checkout to skip the shipping charges. If you live in Arcata/Mckinleyvillle/Trinidad/Eureka, I would be happy to meet you at the Fire Arts Center in Arcata to pick up an order to save shipping costs!
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL WHEN ORDERING!
Pots are like people: no pottery is perfect, and neither are we. Sometimes the ceramic world can be unforgiving, or have a “mind of its own” due to unforeseeable factors. Things happen, glazes run, shit cracks and stuff explodes, especially in a shared community space. However, we all have interesting characteristics that make us special; so too with pottery. When you do not seek perfection in pottery or people, and enjoy them for what they are, you will find your life greatly enriched.
When you make the decision to place an order through my shop on a ready to ship item, make sure you have thoroughly decided. There are no refunds. I include multiple photographs from different angles. In many cases I provide measurements, however, if they are not provided, I am always open and responsive to questions regarding a listing. I write a description of each item to help you with your decision making. Take your time! *All purchases are final.*If there is a problem with your order, please contact me. If for some reason you have to *cancel* before shipment has occurred, there is a $10 fee for cancellation starting April 2018.
As for pre-orders, once payment is accepted, work will be begin. If for some reason valid reason, you have to "cancel*, you agree to forfeit 50% of the total sale (excluding shipment). If an anomaly occurs, I will decide upon shipment discounts I may apply. Generally I may mark the item down to a price I would have listed it should it have been a ready-to-ship. This mark down will reflect in a reimbursement to the buyer on a case by case basis.
I have a FAQs section should you have any other questions.
Subscribe to my site! I send a reminder email the day of an update! Every month I update the shop once or twice. These items become available for purchase at a specific date and time which is announced via Instagram and Etsy with ample time for folks to be ready. Most mugs tend to sell out within the hour. It is best to be on the website a few minutes prior to the update release time.
Designs that are in high demand but limited will often be auctioned on Instagram. These auctions are not announced and happen randomly. I list the item with guidelines and timeframe on a post through Instagram. Buyer must have a PayPal account and Instagram account to participate.
Rarely. Because of fairness. I only take reserves under special circumstances. You at least have to be a returning customer, and have left a review in the past when you did order. Each circumstance varies, and it is up to me to say yes or no.
Rarely. This year I’m accepting a *limited* number of custom requests during the first weeks of April and October. Folks can contact me via Etsy during these months with their idea or an image of a design I’ve already created, and if selected, pricing and listing discussions will begin via email.
Because it takes weeks to complete a mug. Because I work mainly in high quality porcelain. Because my work is highly detailed. All hand-carved. Because I’m a one-woman show. Because I value and love myself. Because I’m worth it. If you think my prices are too high, my work is not for you.
