Work is shipped securely using corrugated cardboard boxes and recycled fills such as bubble wrap, foam and air pillows.
If you do not wish for your order invoice to be included in the shipment (eg. gifts) please let us know in the comments at checkout or by email.
DELIVERY AND INSURANCE

If your package has arrived damaged, please contact us as soon as possible with your name and order information. We will do our utmost to ensure your satisfaction which may include a store credit or replacement in situations where a similar piece can be recreated.
General Condition of Sale
Every attempt is made to accurately photograph work. Due to differences in computer monitors there may be some variation of colour between the picture you view on your screen and the actual piece. If exact colour rendition is important to you please send us an email and we will do our best to describe the pot or send additional high resolution digital photos.
All measurements are taken on the widest and tallest points on the exterior of the pot. The measurements provided describe approximate overall exterior size and height. Some descriptions may include internal measurements where indicated. Please note that measurements may not be exact since all pieces are artisanal and handmade therefore they can be subject to unique imperfections.

As a professional business, we are required to charge sales tax on orders within Canada. The rule of thumb is that, if applicable, we must charge the GST and/or HST of the province where the shipment is being delivered. If you have questions about sales tax, please contact us.
