commissions will be open again in OCTOBER.
How long does it take to make a vase?
typically 8 weeks. Occasionally there are unforeseen/rare circumstances (the vase breaking during firing) that can effect the lead-time. Please expect to have a bit of patience during this process!
How big are the vases?
approx 11 inches tall
Can I order more than one vase?
absolutely- just specify in the form that you are ordering separate vases & not multiple faces on one vase. (no need to submit multiple forms- it loads into my email in a confusing way)
Can I rush order my vase?
no! with ceramics a lot of the timing is out of my control, the clay needs to dry out completely and there are multiple firings involved. I'm happy to send you WIP pics at any point of the process though!
Can I order a vase of an animal besides dog/cat?
probably yes! email me and we will discuss :)
How do I pay for my vase?
There is a private webpage connected to my site that I will send you over email once we have confirmed the project! if you are ordering multiple vases that are all shipping to different locations I will send you an invoice over paypal!
Should I email katie to order a vase when commission requests are closed?
please don't :) even if you just mean to send it to me to start when I am taking on commissions- chances are I will forget about it when the time comes.
Whats the process?
I sculpt the portrait of your pet onto a vase based on the photos you send me, wait for it to completely dry out & put it into the kiln for a bisque fire. once the piece is bisque I use low fire glazes to put your pets coloring onto the vase & fire again! If your pet has a complicated coloring sometimes It will take multiple firings to get the coloring just right :)
Can I commission a piece that is not a vase?
Possibly- open to discussing. all I'll say is sometimes I get emails asking me to recreate/copy something they saw in the wild or to make something from sketches they've done and those aren't really projects that I am interested in taking on. If you like my artwork & know that the finished piece is going to look like I made it (lol) then I'd love to hear from you.
