“I love when people come to my booth at art, design and craft shows and tell me that they have a few of my pots in their home and want another one. They tell where the pots are in their house and how much they still enjoy looking at them even after so many years.”

—Lynne Meade


Ordering steps

Complete the order form as fully as possible. To order more than one item, please include name of piece, quantity and price in special instructions. Include dimensions and/ or color for custom orders. To commission a different shape or pattern, share what you have in mind.

2. Confirm

Once she receives your order, Lynne will confirm your order details, request additional information when necessary and quote lead time of shipping from Oakland, CA. She will include rush charges and custom design and/ or custom color fees, when applicable.


3. Approve

Approve the order, lead time, shipping cost and other charges, so that Lynne can start production of your piece. Payment in full is due upon acceptance of the order. For custom orders, 50% deposit is required. The balance is due upon completion. All ceramics are made-to-order.

4. Lead Time

Lynne wants you to enjoy your piece as soon as possible. Lead time is generally 1 to 3 weeks. Since each piece is handmade by Lynne, sometimes making may take a little bit longer. Lead time for custom sizes is 5 to 6 weeks. Rush orders will incur a rush charge quoted on a case-by-case basis.


5. Make

For standard pieces, your piece will be made in the order accepted. For custom orders and commissions, Lynne will keep you abreast of the progress of producing your piece. The process may involve approvals of design drawings, color swatches and mock-ups.

6. Ship

When your order is ready, Lynne will pack and ship it to the address provided in the order form. Shipping options include FedEx, USPS, UPS, DHL or a freight carrier of your choice. If a phone number is required for shipping, Lynne will request one prior to shipping. You’ll receive a confirmation of shipping with a shipper tracking number, so that you can follow the package in transit.

Please note that all duties and VAT are the responsibility of the recipient, and vary by country, depending on size, shipping cost, and other factors. We reserve the right to adjust the final cost of shipping and handling based on extra costs incurred.

In the event that your piece is damaged in shipping, Lynne will handle the claim and re-make your order on a priority basis. Send her photos of the damaged piece(s), the outer packaging and any damages to the box and packaging.
