week, I pick one day on which I pack all my orders and drop the packages

Do you ship


Do you ship internationally?

Yes I do ship internationally. Prices will vary according to which country/part of the world I’m shipping to. Customs may also slow down your order.


Is it possible to pick up my order at the studio? 

Yes, that’s possible. Whether you’re in Leeuwarden or in the
neighbourhood, you can always make an appointment and pick up your
order at my studio.

What do I do if a product has been damaged during shipping?

Of course, I do my best to prevent this from happening, but it’s always
possible that something happens while your order is being shipped to you.
I always put orange tape with the word ‘fragile’ on the package, but it’s
out of my hands how the delivery partner handles it. Please send me a
message if something is damaged upon arrival. We’ll see if there’s any
way we can fix the issue, with a voucher or a refund, for example.

What if my order has been delayed or hasn’t been delivered?

Please contact me if your order has been delayed, hasn’t been delivered or
has been lost. I’ll contact the delivery partner if this is the case. Often,
they will know why the order has been delayed or what went wrong. If it’s
just a delay, you might have to be patient and wait a little longer, as the
problem will be solved automatically. If that’s not the case, my delivery
partner will look into it further.
If it looks like your order has been lost, I need to receive a confirmation
from Post NL that the order has been ‘officially lost’. This means I will wait 1
month before I’ll resend the products. As Lydia Elisabeth Pottery is a small
operation, I can’t give the same shipping conditions as a large business.
It’s out of my control when something goes wrong during shipping.
At the moment, I use Post NL as my delivery partner. I researched other
possible delivery services, but they are kind of similar – in the sense that
they all mess up an order from time to time, which I can’t do much about
myself. Still, I’m very satisfied with Post NL, even if the delivery takes a bit
longer than planned.




Are the items dishwasher and oven safe?

Yes, they are. All my ceramics are made of so-called stoneware clay. That
means that it’s been baked at 1240 °C in a ceramic oven (it will be
mentioned on the product page if that’s not the case). The item is
resistant to liquids and will be able to withstand large shifts of
temperature, due to the intense heat of the ceramic oven.
Personally, I prefer to wash my ceramics by hand, so I can be sure it’s
washed with care.

Do you use sustainable packaging material?

I try to pack the order as sustainable as possible. For example, I can’t walk
into a supermarket without checking if they have any unused boxes.
All products will be wrapped in scrunched up paper or newspapers and
packaged in a cardboard box. I do still use bubble wrap, but I’m on the
look-out for something to replace that with. I put a cardboard wrap around
the bubble wrap to make it even more sturdy and secure.
I often recycle bubble wrap and cardboard boxes from products I received

Is it possible to visit your Atelier?

It’s always possible to visit my atelier, but only by appointment.

Do you also take on large orders, for businesses or restaurants?

Yes, I do. If you’re interested in placing a large order, I would like to discuss
the possibilities beforehand. Do keep in mind that a large order will take
more time, as even a simple cup can take 1 month to make. At the
moment, I don’t have a large stock of my products, unfortunately.

Besides ceramics, do you make and sell any other things?

Besides ceramics, I do work with other materials, such as steel, textiles
and plants. Check the inventory of my shop for the best picture of what
I’m currently selling besides my ceramics.

How many people work at Lydia Elisabeth Pottery?

Lydia Elisabeth Pottery is operated by one person (me, Lydia).
This means it all works a bit differently than with larger corporations. I do
everything myself: designing and making the products, the accounting, the
media, the website, cleaning the studio, packing your order
and anything
else. Sometimes it’s a race against time.
Still, I really enjoy being my own boss.
