ARE ALL ITEMS MADE BY HAND?
Yes! All wares are made by me, Wyeth, in my home studio. Immense care is taken in the throwing, trimming, glazing, and packaging of each piece. You can learn more about my process here!
How long will it take for me to receive my pottery?
Because each item is thrown, trimmed, glazed, fired, and packed with immense care by one person, the time needed to make each piece can vary. Individual fabrication times can be found within each listing, and depend on order size, material availability, and studio firing schedule - a more specific time estimate can be provided upon request!
As a general rule of thumb, please allow anywhere from 2-5 weeks for your items to be fabricated and shipped.
If I were to order several of the same item, would they be identical?
While all pieces are as close to identical as possible, and made to specific dimensions and criteria, it is important to remember that they are handcrafted. Thus, they of course have slight variations in size, glazing (i.e. drips, speckles, color) etc.
All are imperfectly “perfect” and uniquely different. :)
Do you offer custom orders?
I do! please refer to my contact page for more information regarding custom orders.
Do you offer custom wholesale orders?
Typically no, however, all custom wholesale requests are assessed on a case by case basis. If you are a retailer and have a specific design in mind, contact me directly and I would be happy to take a look and discuss things further!
That being said, if your request has been approved, please be advised that custom wholesale orders require a significant amount of additional time. Therefore, there will be a small fee associated with these orders.
I'm a retailer looking to place an order... do you offer all of your products wholesale?
Thank you so much for your interest in Whimsy! Unfortunately at this time only a selection of my wares are available wholesale. That said, fortunately, few items are excluded from that list!
As a small business, owned and operated by one person, I try to make sure that I compensate myself fairly. At the present time it is not cost effective for me to offer all of my products at a significantly discounted price.
Hopefully in the near future more of my wares will become available wholesale.
DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS FOR BULK ORDERS (IE FOR WEDDINGS, BABY SHOWERS, ETC.?)
I do! Discounts for bulk orders vary depending on the desired item(s) and quantity. For a price quote email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or submit a message through my contact page.
IS THE GLAZE THAT YOU USE FREE OF LEAD AND OTHER TOXINS? Is it FOOD SAFE?
Most definitely. All of my glazes are food safe, and therefore free of harmful toxins.
I JUST PURCHASED ONE OF YOUR ITEMS, CAN I PUT It IN THE MICROWAVE?
Absolutely! All of my pottery is made from the highest quality stoneware clay, thus, it is both microwave and dishwasher safe! However that said, I do provide various tips and tricks to extend the life of your pottery in one of the Q's below.
How should i care for my new pottery?
Great question. While all tableware is food and dishwasher safe, they are handcrafted wares. That said, washing by hand is the safest option as it will prevent potential warping, and ultimately extend the life of your pottery.
