A Puffin takes a nap while diligently holding your picture or card up for everyone to see. The puffin is hand sculpted from ceramic white clay, fired, hand painted, then fired again. A copper wire loop will hold your picture-card up.
Being that each one is hand made, the Puffin you receive may vary slightly from the one pictured - I call it personality. It will, however, be very very close in shape, size and, of course, cuteness.
The holder is approx. 4 inches high. The puffin itself is about 2 tall by 3 wide.
Items will be shipped Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and will be handled through USPS.

International customers are responsible for all fees associated with shipping to their respective countries.PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME TO LIE ON CUSTOMS FORMS.
Payment is expected immediately after commitment to purchase.
Returns & exchanges
In the case of items damaged during shipping, please contact me immediately (within 3 days of receiving order) because I would like to do what I can to make it right.
As always with handmade items there may be some variations as to color, size, and general appearance, in cases where a buyer is unhappy with the final product--I am happy to remake and make it right at no additional charge to the buyer. If a refund is preferred it will be issued as soon as the item in question is returned in the original shipping box (to ensure safety during shipping).
Custom orders and Made to orders are generally taking me at least 14 M-F days to complete. Ceramic pieces need to be thoroughly dried before the first firing (or they can explode), each firing cycle can take anywhere from 18-24 hours. Please allow time for item to be created when purchasing custom or made to order items. Any delays in communication may extend the 14 days to complete an item.
Please understand that I am the only member of my studio and am responsible for the designing, creating, and shipping of each piece. At times of high volumes of orders there may be slight delays due to volume of workload or damage during firings. If time is an issue please inquire to find out if I am running on schedule before ordering. I work in batches and different pieces may require different firing cycles which may cause conflicts and delays.
AT THIS TIME I DO NOT OFFER ANY WHOLESALE PRICING. I carefully price my items by the time it takes me to make them and the difficulty involved. I am not able to mass produce large quantities of the same item and sell at a reduced rate because the same work (if not more) is involved which each piece no matter how many pieces are in the order.
