[Overseas buyers note that there may be an initial shipping overcharge if purchasing several items at once. The overspend will be refunded to you immediately after postage]

Listing is for this gorgeous handmade centre-piece featuring a simple patchwork squares design on its inner surface, in lime green and pale blue.

The underside shows my potter's mark and is fully glazed.

The surface of this piece is richly patterned, each square has flowers, stitchy lines and dots to add interest and texture.

The wording around the border is from W.B.Yeats : "Had I the Heavens' embroidered cloths, enwrought with golden and silver light"

This is part of my series of decorative 'quilt-block' patterned bowls. This one measures approximately 21 diameter and 3cm deep. A unique gift for quilters, but also for anyone who loves colour and pattern.

I make the bowls 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 functional items. They are handmade and as such may have the odd quirk or mark here and there - which all adds to their charm.

Wipe clean only please.

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.
