*These pottery buttons are sold separately. You will receive *ONE* button. Multiple quantities may be selected as you add items to your cart*
I textured the clay with a length of rope when I created these buttons. They are glazed with a white glaze that interacted with the speckles in the stoneware clay. Very rustic.
Handmade pottery buttons are the perfect finishing touch for that special knitting or sewing project. Use them as fasteners, in the traditional sense, or use them as focal points on a finished project. They are durable as well as beautiful.
This round button measure 50 mm in diameter
My hand formed clay buttons are created in my studio using stoneware or porcelain clay. Each button is handled many times as they are made, to ensure that the surface and holes are smooth so as not to mar your beautiful handiwork. They are fired in my kiln twice, the second time to almost 2300 degrees to create the glassy and durable glazed surface that you see here. My buttons are glazed on front and back.
*I recommend that you hand wash any item that has a ceramic button on it, but with care they may be washed in the washing machine on the gentle cycle. Wrap the button in aluminum foil to protect it, then turn the article inside out to further guard against damage. Hang or lay flat to dry.
Small items ship ship via USPS First class mail. An upgrade to Priority Mail and insurance is available; please convo me BEFORE payment so that I can revise your invoice. Functional pottery mostly ships via Flat Rate Priority within the US. International packages ship first class.
International Customers: I will NOT mark your package "Gift" on the customs form, so please do not ask. I generally do my international shipping once a week.
PLEASE be sure to verify your shipping information before you place your order. There is no way for me to know whether or not you have an alternative shipping address; we as sellers are only provided with one shipping address. I ship to the address on the Etsy Order (for credit card payments) or the Paypal verified shipping address, for orders paid by PayPal. I cannot provide refunds on orders for which I have printed shipping labels to an outdated address on your account.
I prefer Paypal, but I also accept credit card via Etsy. I ship once payment is received. Please note that if you pay for an item via e-check (through Paypal), I won't ship till the payment has cleared, which generally takes 3-5 days. As soon as I get the OK from Paypal, your goodies will be on their way. Items paid via Paypal will be shipped to the address on the Paypal account--please make sure that address is current. By only shipping to the Paypal address you, as the buyer, are protected as am I as the seller.
5.5% sales tax will be added to all orders shipped to Maine.
If you need to cancel an item, just convo me. As long as it hasn't shipped, it's no problem for me.
Returns & exchanges
Please contact me within 5 days of receiving your package if you are not satisfied with your products. You can either exchange your piece for another of equal value, or you can request a refund. Refunds will be issued when I receive the product back; refunds will NOT be issued for shipping costs (unless I shipped the wrong item), only for the cost of the items. Refunds will also not be issued if I ship a package to an address that the customer has provided that turns out to be outdated: please verify your shipping address before completing your order.
Due to the uncertainties of the firing process I am no longer doing custom orders. You may make requests or suggestions and I can add it to my to-do list, but please understand that I will not guarantee a finish date, as the clay, the glaze, the kiln....all are finicky.
