General

What does Made to Order mean?

Made to order means that I start making your pottery after it is ordered and paid for. This usually takes 4-6 weeks for things like house numbers & utensil holders and 6-10 weeks for dinnerware, depending on the items and quantity you are ordering. Each product page lets you know the current production times. Contact me if you have any questions.

How long does shipping take?

Standard shipping for orders inside the contiguous U.S. will take 5-10 business days. International orders will usually take 3-5 weeks to arrive depending on the destination and customs processing. This is after the Made To Order production time.

Microwave, dishwasher, oven safe?

Yes! Except for our Raku products. Our pottery is microwave safe, oven safe* (to 400°) and dishwasher safe. It is all dishwasher safe as well.

Please take care to avoid exposing your the pottery to radical temperature changes, which can cause thermal shock and could make the piece crack or break. Example, avoid putting a cold dish into a hot pre-heated oven or a hot dish onto a cold surface or into the sink. We recommend setting hot plates on a rack or onto potholders or pads when it’s pulled from the oven.

  • The white clay we use with our other glaze colors does get a little warm in the microwave but meets federal regulations for safe use.
  • The dishes retain heat very well. Coffee stays hot in handmade mugs a lot longer than store bought mugs.

*Due to the risk of thermal shock, it is recommended to gradually heat and cool the pottery with oven use.

To prevent your baking dish from breaking during baking, cover at least two-thirds of the surface area with food. It is recommended to preheat in the oven before baking. However do not preheat an empty dish in the oven, because this may cause the piece to crack or break.

Do you take Custom Orders?

Yes. We make your dreams come true with what every you would like to see with our pottery. (fairy dust not included)

Can I put my piece in the on the stove top?

NO – the  stove top tend to heat up too dramatically for the pots and this could cause cracking in the clay from thermal shock.

Do you share information on customers or Twitch followers?

We do not share information of customers, Twitch followers, or Twitch Subscribers.

Does the clay water hurt Kiba?

After consultation with our Vet. Clay tablets are actually used to improve digestive problems for cats. The clay we use is not harmful to him and we use clean water at all times during the process.

Does streaming help you make things faster?

Pottery is my full time job. I would be producing the orders you see being made either way. However I get to share my craft with others and have someone besides the cat to talk to.
