Giant Mushroom Reborn

Auugh, so, my biggest mushroom house had misfortune happen to its cap while traveling around this fall. It was absolutely not repairable, yet highlighted a good reason I make my big pieces in separate parts: I can just re-make a new top. Amaco recently released their absolutely gorgeous new Cosmos glazes, and I knew I wanted one of these shimmery, iridescent glazes to be the new mushroom cap. Thus, I re-release to you The Mushroom Farmer’s House! I’m so in love with its new cap: photos really have a hard time capturing how much movement is in this glaze. It changes no matter the position you’re standing in, no matter how the light strikes it. I hope you enjoy!

Holidaze Are Coming

Yippee! It’s that time of year, when I release holiday ornaments and trees into the world! Check out the Holiday section of my site and stock up. This is probably also a great time to mention that for the first time ever, my cauldron mugs will be only $20 on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday ONLY! Once this style is gone, they’re GONE.

Shipping is Horrible

The BANE of my online shop existence is shipping. It’s NOT intuitive, and shipping calculators don’t really account for “a bunch of extra padding that makes this item an inch bigger and an ounce heavier”. That being said, it was brought to my attention that my shop was charging outrageous shipping prices. I had no idea. I try to keep up with it, but stuff gets by me. It’s given me a HUGE pause, wondering how many people put something in their cart, only to be immediately put off by a $60 charge for mailing three zines. The absolute horror.

I HOPE that my day of tinkering, measuring, weighing, and categorizing has fixed this issue. If you’ve ever come across exorbitant shipping charges in my shop, please know that while I cannot afford to offer free shipping, I do my best to keep things reasonable, even if betrayed by the computer! As always, local pickup is free, and don’t hesitate to let me know if you think a shipping charge is way too high, even for pottery. 🙂
