Handmade Ceramic Patchwork Platter

$35.73

[Non-UK buyers .... Purchase of several items together may result in an initial shipping overcharge, which is always refunded once the order is posted]

Beautiful handmade centre-piece featuring rows of trees and houses with a pretty patchwork border in pale blue and pink. The underside shows my potter's mark.

This one measures approximately 20cm square and 4.5cm high at its highest point. A unique gift for quilters, but also for anyone who loves colour and pattern. I make them in a range of different patterns, (see other listings).

I make the pieces from earthenware clay, imprinting the surface pattern by hand, to give a very textured finish. They are left to dry out for three or four days and then bisque-fired in my kiln to a temperature of 1000 degrees for 24 hours including cooling time. I then apply the colourful glazes and fire a second time to 1040 degrees.

These pieces are purely decorative, artistic pieces, not really functional items. They will look fabulous on a coffee table or standing upright on a plate-stand on a kitchen shelf. They are handmade and as such may have the odd quirk or mark here and there - making them perfectly imperfect!

Payments

I accept payment via PayPal and direct credit card. Most major credit cards can be used on PayPal and you do not need to have a PayPal account to do so. I ship overseas to some places. Message me if you need a shipping quote. Any overcharge on shipping costs will be refunded, if it is more than £1.50.

Shipping from United Kingdom

Sometimes my items are shipped by Royal Mail and sometimes by courier, depending on what is most appropriate for the individual parcel, and I do try to re-use boxes and packaging to cut down on waste.

In-stock items will usually be sent off within 2 days.
If they are not in-stock I'll gladly make them to order for you - please see individual shipping times or contact me for further advice. If you order more than one item and part of your order is made to order, I will ship all items together when ready.

I currently ship in UK and some smaller items overseas. For a shipment of a larger item outside the UK, please ask me for a shipping quote. Any orders sent outside the UK may be liable for import duties, taxes and handling charges, which you as a buyer, would be liable for. Any overcharge on shipping costs will be refunded to you, if it is over £1.50.

Refunds

I want you to love your pottery, so if you are unhappy with your purchases for any reason, I will give a refund if required, (minus your shipping fees), once the item has been returned to me, unused and in saleable condition. Return postage will be paid by you. Returns must be made within 7 days of receipt of goods after contact has been made with me.
Very rarely, an item may break in transit - obviously a full refund or replacement will be arranged in that case.
On receipt of your order, if you have any problems, please contact me.

Additional

I gift wrap all orders in coloured tissue paper, string, gift tags, ceramic gift tags, etc. Larger orders sometimes include a few freebies (beads, buttons, etc) if I have a surplus.
