    • Handmade Pottery for a Special Somebody
      Ceramics aren't just great gifts, they're mementos and daily tools too. Who's on your mind, and what might they want? It's exciting to think about!
    • Getting your Hands Dirty
      It's time to shape the clay! 
      Do it by hand for a soft and earthy look, or use a pottery wheel for an even outcome. You can make as many as you like, so keep trying!
    • Your Gift is Ready!
      Once you get the shape you like, pick the dye and it's ready to cook. It'll take around 3 weeks for it to be finished and shipped, so give yourself plenty of time!
