Ordering is easy! Each piece is a one of a kind item so if you see something you like simply use the link for my email and tell me which item you want, give me your method of shipping (I use UPS, USPS, or Fed Ex on rare occasions) and your shipping address.
I can process credit cards over the phone, or you can pay with a personal check. If by check I require full payment before I send out your order. When your package is shipped all receipts will be included with your packing slip, in your package.
Christmas Orders: Must be submitted by Mid October if the item is not in stock or is a custom order. All other Christmas orders need to be in by Thanksgiving in order to be processed and shipped in time for Christmas delivery.
My current production schedule for items that are "sold out" is 4 to 6 weeks, and custom orders are 6+ weeks.
I hope you enjoy the site, and I look forward to hearing from you~
All sales are final. Exchanges are accepted if item ordered is of inferior quality to item pictured when it arrives. Item must be shipped back to me and a replacement item will be sent to the customer upon receipt and inspection of the original item, shipping of second item is negotiable. (No replacements are accepted after 30 days from original ship date.)
Glazing techniques and the hand built, &/or sculpted nature of each item causes all items to be of a "one of a kind" nature or look, making no two pieces exactly the same. Some items pictured are similar to what the item shipped will look like. Masks will be as pictured as I only make a few of them each year. If in doubt you are getting what is pictured, please ask at the time of inquiry. Larger, or more expensive items will be the item pictured. Broken or damaged items due to faulty shipping practices will be replaced (shipping at customers expense) if item is shipped back to me in original packaging.

Earthen Vessels Pottery 2006
Welcome to Earthen Vessels Pottery. I'm Michelle, the artist behind the "One of a Kind" sculpted botanical pottery featured in this website.
My pieces are all inspired by the natural wonder God created all around me in the quaint costal town of Brookings, Oregon where I live. This town is known as the "Banana Belt" of the Oregon Coast, making it ideal for the leaves and flowers I use in my work.
The pieces of art you see above were all made from various leaves and flowers pressed into midfire stoneware clay. I create most of my pieces individually from hand cut impressions, while others are partially or fully sculpted.
I use a special glazing technique I developed which utilizes the color theory behind how a water color painting is developed. Through water color theory I can achieve incredible depth, variety, and brilliance of color. However, by applying my glazes like this, I am not able to exactly replicate the glazed appearance of any two pieces of pottery, which makes each piece truly "one of a kind."
I strive to make pieces of art which are high in quality, very unique and yet affordable. I have always been attracted to gallery quality art when enjoying the work of other artists, and have driven myself to only present pottery which is comparable in quality, yet still affordable for the average person.
My artwork is only available at the few selected shows I attend each year, online, and at only a select few local outlets along the Southern Oregon and Northern California Coast. (Please see my show schedule below)
Thanks for visiting this web site, and I hope you enjoy my unique art!
