clay with a view: I am now offering pottery experiences at my forest grove studio


How do you calculate shipping costs?

Shipping costs are dependent on the accumulative weight of your order.  If your shipping fees end up being inaccurate, I will refund you the extra fees.  If you live locally, you are more than welcome to pick up your order.

.1 lb–0.9lb        $6.00

1lb                   $10.00

1.1lb–2lb         $15.00

2.1lb–4lb         $20.00

4.1lb–6lb         $30.00


How do you ship your wares safely?

Pottery is a rather tricky thing to ship as it needs to be cushioned as if you were shipping off your firstborn child.  Double boxing often is needed, which results in large boxes that are relatively light.  My goal is to get you your packages quickly and safely.  There is a huge sigh of relief every time a package arrives at its new home in once piece.  Less than 3% of my orders have met an untimely demise, but if your package arrives in too many pieces (after a few tears), we will try to work out an exchange or refund, depending on stock available.

When will you make more of _________________?

As someone who is a little ADHD, one of my favorite things about pottery is the ability for me to hop around from task to task.  Tomorrow I might make mugs, bowls or that casserole dish I've been meaning to get around to.  If you have an item that you would love to see more of, let me know!

How did you get into pottery?

I have been wanting to take a pottery class for 5 years now but the local beginning pottery class was on Thursday, the day I drove my teens to ballroom class.  Covid cancelled their dance class but did not cancel pottery, which was a happy arrangement.  After wishing for more practice time, I found a cool situation at a friend's studio that allowed for me to play in the mud anytime of day (or night!).  I made the goal to get up bright and early while my kids still slept to practice, practice, practice.  The self care it provided was a bonus to all of the fun creations I was able to bring home.  Soon, I realized that I was going to need to make more friends to gift pottery to or I was going to need to open up a shop.
