Packaging and delivery costs
The exact cost of packaging/postage is very order specific as it is possible to safely pack some pots inside each other and this can lead to a significant reduction in price.
Packaging and postage is charged at 'cost' price and we make every effort to keep these to a minimum.
Timescales and sizes
Most pots are kept in stock and we will dispatch these as soon as payment has been made. Pots made to complete an order are started as soon as you confirm you wish to proceed with an order and take 3 to 5 weeks to complete (3 weeks to make, dry and fire the smaller pots 5 weeks for bigger pots as they have to be dried slower).
The sizes detailed in the catalogue section of this web page are the external dimensions. We endeavour to make the pots to the listed sizes but differences in the clay and the fact that all our pots are hand made may result in minor differences in size, shape and tone of colour.
Money Back Guarantee
If you are dissatisfied with your purchase, we will refund your money provided the pots are returned to us undamaged within 21 days of delivery. The customer is responsible for the cost of the returns.
