It is very important to us that you are completely satisfied with your purchase. If your pottery has any flaws, please let us know and we are happy to replace flawed pottery. The ceramic process is not perfect and flaws sometimes happen. We really appreciate knowing if you discover that you pottery has a flaw and will replace your order at no charge. Please understand that qualities like rough edges, finger marks and strange colors or textures are not flaws- they are intentionally put into each piece of artwork. However, please let us know if you are unhappy for any reason. I make pottery because I want the pieces to be appreciated by the user, with the ability to be used everyday.

If you are not happy with your pottery for any reason please e-mail us. We really apprecaite all feedback, both positive and negative. Our contact email: contact@cherricopottery.com

Flawed Pottery and Micro-cracks

Sometimes handmade artwork has flaws. We have discovered that about one in every 1,000 pieces of pottery might leak. Micro-cracks sometimes form in clay. They are invisible and impossible to predict, but they can result in a coffee mug having a leak that allows liquid to pass through one, tiny spot on the mug and slowly leak out onto a table or surface. If you suspect that your pottery is leaking, please email is right away: contact@cherricopottery.com and we will replace your pottery immediately or refund your order 100%. We are not able to cover damages that a leaky mug might cause.
