How we do it

These terracotta pieces with sculptural additions are made to be both admired AND used. The critters are firmly attached, and when used like any other fine work, will stay secure. Each piece is hand painted and glazed; and has been fired once to bisque (harden) it, and a second time after paint and glaze has been applied.


Care/ Cleaning

All work is foodsafe; we recommend hand washing only. Food can be warmed in it, but we do not recommend cooking in it.


Shipping policy

We have been shipping Cape Breton Clay all over North America (and sometimes Europe) for eight years. The cost of shipping, which is paid by the buyer, depends on the size and quantity of pottery ordered, and the destination. We have had excellent results and each piece is packed very carefully. In the unlikely event something should happen during shipping, the work can be returned within 30 days for exchange. If we have the bowl or platter you want, it should not take more than a week to get it moving to you in the mail. If the work needs to be made, we would estimate how long it would take.


Although it is unlikely the work will be damaged in transit, if the worst should happen, you could contact us as soon as possible (within 30 days) to arrange a replacement. Please note that this work is hand made, and that there may be some small variation between work shown here and what you receive. It is impossible for the work to match these images exactly given the colour limits of photography and computer monitors.



We accept VISA, MASTERCARD, money orders, travellers' cheques and certified cheques.
