Samples & Seconds

Samples & Seconds


December discount 50%-60% Off

What are seconds and samples?    

There are so many working parts in making ceramics, that having everything go according to plan doesn't always happen. When this happens the piece gets set aside and labeled as "second".

Reasons for an item to become “second” may include slight warping, small glaze pinholes, small glaze inconstancies, hairline crack on the foot of trinket dishes, etc. Most of the pieces are close to being “firsts” sometimes it could be a few pinholes in a place that is not that noticeable.

In order to save time/labor some of the pictures shown are of my normal stock.  

Samples are one-off pieces that I might have done for a commission, testing out a process, etc.


All seconds and samples sales are final.

No exchanges or refunds.
