These heart buttons are created by rolling a texture into my clay and then cutting the shape. Once they are leather hard, I make the button holes and clean up the edges. They are fired in a bisque kiln at cone 04 and then they are painted with several coats of celadon glaze on the top and the sides. I paint several coats of underglaze on the backs to make sure the backs are nice and smooth. The final step is the glaze firing at cone 6.
While handmade ceramic buttons are durable, I recommend hand washing all handmade items to make sure they are getting the best care for a long life.
These buttons measure 1 1/4" wide x 1 1/4" long.
I sell them as 1 button on a card.
Any form of payment offered through Etsy is fine.
I prefer to ship via USPS. If you prefer another carrier such as UPS or FedEx, email me and we can make arrangements. Remember, shipping ceramics can be expensive, but I do everything possible to make sure your item arrives safely.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Please contact me if something is damaged in shipping.
I enjoy creating custom orders. Contact me with your ideas, I will make sketches, scan them, and then email them to you for approval. All custom work must be paid for in advance before the sketching process begins. There will be rush fees on orders with a rush turn-around time.
