whats the difference between simple and complex designs?
simple: 1 glaze, 3 colors max, 1 detailed design element (may be sculptural, textural, or painterly) OR 3 simpler surface design elements
complex: unlimited flexibility with design elements and colors. recommended for clients interested in detailed painterly, sculptural, textural, or calligraphy elements
-why is your work so expensive?
commission prices include the cost of studio access, raw materials (clay, glaze, underglazes/engobes), tools, electricity, firing fee, shipping materials and most importantly my artistic and creative labor.i average 18-36 working hours on any given piece. all in all, after material and studio costs are covered, these prices amount to ~$3-6/hr. my prices are more than fair.
-commercial rights: the right to reproduce the object with a ceramics factory for a merch/goods line! all other uses are considered personal use. :) you are free to commission artists to recreate the design as a streaming asset, use it in commissioned art for prints/stickers, etc. if you're not sure, you can dm me bc id be more than happy to hear about how u want to incorporate my work into other parts of your life ;v;
Old Clay Bodies (All OX △6)
TERMS OF SERVICE
By commissioning me, you are stating that you agree to the following terms.
Please read before contacting.
✦✦ PLEASE NOTE ✦✦ Every custom piece is MADE TO ORDER and the current production time for most orders is a long ass time. Expect a turnaround time of 3-6mo at the minimum.
i do not accept deadlines and do not accept rush orders. good art takes time!
I have the right to refuse any commission request without needing to explain the reason.
Any bad behavior or breach of terms/use will result in the cancellation of your commission.
prices are non-negotiable. see: comm info if you're interested in how i price.
Payment is collected upfront. Option of paying half upfront and half after also available.
Shipping is not included. Generally, it costs 15USD to ship (w/o a tracking number) within the continental US.
I accept Paypal or Ko-Fi. other payment options may be discussed.
After payment is received, I will begin your commission.
design phase: consideration of the commissioner's vision in size, shape, color, handle, purpose, etc.
questions to ponder, as a commissioner: do i like thrown objects or handbuilt objects? how do i hold my mug? by the handle or by the body?; how many fingers do i hold a handle with? 1-2 or whole hand?; what shape is my favorite mug?; what purpose will this piece serve? a coffee mug? a cappuccino mug? a tea cup?; what color would i like the inside to be? white, so that i can see the color of the liquid i am drinking? dark, so i don't? or something cute that matches the aesthetic?; etc
Note that the final piece will not be a 1:1 recreation of the design. translating concepts to clay isn't picture-perfect due to the nature of crafting with a 3d material. it usually takes 3-4 iterations of the same form/design in order to master the techniques for a specific design. however i will only make one copy of your design unless paid for the others. therefore, it will not be perfectly representative of the 2d concept. No refunds will be issued for minor design discrepancies from initial concept.
preparation phase: edit to the design with client's feedback. once approved, the commission is no longer refundable after this point. i will do some decoration and glaze testing to see what is and isn't do-able, and prepare the necessary clay and decoration tools for your piece.
throwing phase: i will either handbuild or throw the piece on a wheel with 0.75-10lbs of wet clay.
trimming phase (thrown work only): after i have thrown the piece and left it to slowly and evenly dry for about a week, i will trim it and attach any parts (handles, knobs, sculptural elements)
decoration phase: at this stage I paint, carve, sliptrail, or add any extra sculptural elements. spans greenware (before first firing) or bisqueware (after first firing) or both stages of clay.
glazing phase: i will dip, spray, or paint your piece with glaze (silica and metals suspended in water that melts into colored glass and forms a very strong and easy-to-clean exterior).
(optional) additional firings: i apply gold or mother of pearl luster and fire it on top of the glaze. note: gold luster is not food-safe and not microwave-safe. mother of pearl luster is!
Edits and alterations of size, shape, form, and design can only be accepted and considered at the design and preparation phases due to the limitations of the material. Once a piece has been fired, it transforms from clay into ceramic, which is a permanent chemical reaction evaporating the molecular water. this makes it impossible to change the size/form/shape of.
however, changes to glaze color before glazing can be accommodated. you may also choose to add-on gold luster/mother of pearl at any point in the process. note, any overglaze work (lustres, china paints) entail an upcharge due to the additional firing required and the cost of the material.
By commissioning me, you are purchasing my artistic labor and the original produced work. I retain the rights to my work.
i retain all rights to my work - this includes reserving the right to public feature the commissioned work. this includes, but is not limited to, being able to: (1) post and promote the work on twitter, (2) use the work as commission examples (and include them in my portfolio/gallery), (3) livestream the process of the commission.
commercial rights: the right to reproduce the object with a ceramics factory for a merch/goods line! all other uses are considered personal use. :) you are free to commission artists to recreate the design as a streaming asset, use it in commissioned art for prints/stickers, etc. if you're not sure, you can dm me bc id be more than happy to hear about how u want to incorporate my work into other parts of your life ;v;
my work may not be reproduced commercially (as a prototype for reproduction by a pottery factory). if you would like commercial rights to reproduce it with a factory for a merch line, discuss it with me and we can work out a contract.
if the client wishes for their commission to be kept private (or private up until a certain time for debut, surprise, gift, etc. purposes), they must disclose that information.
reproductions (photos) of my work are not permitted for use as nfts (non-fungible tokens) or other cryptocurrency/blockchain-related applications.
VI. Refund/Cancellation Policy
refunds may be accommodated before i start designing.
Nonrefundable design fee of 1/3 or 1/4 commission total: Designs take creative labor, so after I begin, I will not refund the design fee. This fee is included in your piece, so this will only impact you if you decide to cancel your commission. for spoon/palette commissions, this will be a 30% fee. for larger pieces, it will be 25% total = design fee.
partial refunds can be accommodated for pieces with functional errors that are a result of poor making as opposed to issues resulting from shipping/breakage/accidents/events i am not responsible for.
I am not personally liable for pieces broken in shipping and cannot issue refunds after a piece has been shipped. I hope you can understand, as I am only a single artist creating and producing work.
Note that the final piece will not be a 1:1 recreation of the design. translating concepts to clay isn't picture-perfect due to the nature of crafting with a 3d material. When you commission me, you are stating that you understand and accept this. No refunds will be issued for design discrepancies from initial concept.
