Terms and Conditions
Purchasing & Shipping
I want you to be happy with your new ceramics. If you have any questions please contact me in advance at email@example.com
Every care has been taken to show my ceramics as accurately as possible with regard to size and colour. The image you see online may show a difference due to slight variation between browsers, devices and screen settings. Any variation between the image represented and the actual artwork is not deemed a fault and slight inconsistencies will not be a valid reason for return.
Every pot that I make is unique and is therefore subject to variations within groups of pots. This is partly due to natural variations in the materials that I use to make the pot – clays, rocks and wood ashes – and partly due to the firing itself. Small differences in temperature and atmosphere in the kiln can create a range of qualities in clays and glazes, which I actively encourage. I make and fire my work with great care and check every piece thoroughly before posting.
