FAQ

JAW Pottery fully supports the Black Lives Matter Movement. As a small business owner I know how the power of money can make all the difference. 

Here is a website I was happy to come across that lists many many Black owned business in Canada, from skincare to clothing, please take some time and consider supporting one of them as well.

COVID 19 

Cases here in Halifax have subsided, with very low to no cases being announced daily. Who knows how long this will last, as the Atlantic Bubble has been opened and more folks travelling around because of summer, I will be keeping a close eye on it and acting accordingly. 

I am respecting the social distancing request unless absolutely necessary.

About Handmade

All products are wedged, wheel thrown, trimmed, handles and glazed my one person and while I strive for uniformity each are unique in their own way. My glazes are hand mixed in small batches, they may vary slightly from order to order. I hope you appreciate these small differences as much as I do!

Care

All work is dishwasher safe but hand washing is highly recommended. Avoid drastic changes in temperatures if possible.  I cannot be responsible for broken pieces months down the line. My pieces are made to be durable, but please use with care.

Made to Order Pieces

Some items are always available for purchase and are marked “made to order” on the listing in the web shop. These generally take between 1-3 weeks to produce. 

Shipping & Local Pick Up 

For the last few weeks I have been making weekly trips to the post office, so shipping has been kept on schedule.

If you live in the Halifax area and you select 'local pick up' upon check out, I will get in touch with you via email or text to organize a time that is convenient with you, I will pack things up and leave them on my porch for a small window of time for you to pick up.

*There is no rush for you to pick up, any pieces you purchase will be yours no matter when you can come get it. I am just one person running this operation and I completely understand what ever situation you may find yourself in. 

Please contact me if you have questions.
