Care, shipping and packaging

Please just message me if you have any specific queries, I'll be adding some FAQs as I progress!

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

All handmade pottery should be handled with care, however as my pots are fired at over 1200ºC, so are dishwasher safe. Over time dishwashers can sometimes dull/scratch glazes, so to keep their fresh good looks it may be advisable to hand wash.

CUSTOM ORDERS

I'm very happy to discuss custom orders, given that every item is hand made and fired twice, the lead times on custom orders can be a few weeks.

PACKAGING

I carefully package all orders to be as robust as possible, and where possible I try and reuse packaging and bubblewrap, and reduce my use of fresh single use plastics.

UK SHIPPING

Standard Shipping is FREE to the UK.  

Your order will be posted within 2 or 3 working days after you've placed your order. A confirmation email will be sent once shipped. Everything is sent Royal Mail 2nd Class as standard which can take 2-3 working days, though in these COVID times I'm finding delivery times are a bit longer, unfortunately. Let me know if you'd like your order by 1st Class or Tracked Delivery and I can arrange that for you with an added fee.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

Sending ceramics overseas is a challenge, with packaging and weight constrictions.

International orders are sent via Royal Mail International which usually takes 7 working days but can be up to 14 days - and sadly it can be longer at the moment! Let me know if you'd like your order tracked as I can arrange that with an added fee. 

Unfortunately, at the moment with COVID and other factors timescales aren't guaranteed ... I wish they were!
