Terms & conditions

Refunds and Returns

I do my best to depict and describe accurately the items in my shop. Please keep in mind that all items are made by hand, are unique and by nature of their making and firing have slight imperfections and variations.

If you are unsatisfied with your purchase or have just changed your mind please let me know immediately as I cannot accept unauthorised returns under any circumstances. I am happy to advise about repacking the work which must be returned is in its original condition (unused and unmarked) and sent to me within 14 days of receipt, in order for me to arrange a refund. Please ensure you get proof of postage as I cannot accept liability for loss of returns in the post. Please note I am unable to refund postage costs on returns.

I do not exchange merchandise that reaches you in good condition. If you wish to exchange , it is simpler to return it for a full refund and then make a new purchase.

In the unlikely event that the goods are damaged during postage to you, please let me know as soon as they arrive. Ideally, if the box looks damaged  take photographs as you unwrap the work, this will help with any insurance claim. If you do not report this immediately then I will not accept any responsibility for the damage and am not obliged to reimburse you.

Any refunds due will be made within 14 days of the work being returned to me.
