I have regularly scheduled online & in-person events that you can see on the Calendar page (link). I can also do custom requests (link to custom order page).. Or you can buy directly from my feed! When I unload the kiln, I post it on Instagram/facebook (@rhoneypots). If you see something you like, contact me via those services or email. If the piece is not already a commission, I may happily sell it to you. Saves me packing it up and hauling it to a show! Please email me if you have any questions: RHoneyPots@gmail.com.
If you have a specific deadline, please tell me and I will try to make it. It generally takes me about 6 weeks to fill and fire the kiln, unless I happen to have your item on hand. I generally start packing online orders as soon as they come in and ship them out priority or UPS within days. You will receive an email with tracking information

My pots are high-fired porcelain-stoneware (cone 5 or 2118 degrees) and are microwave, oven, and dishwasher safe. You can bake in them & then clean them in the dishwasher. They are strong! They are even frost hardy and thus can be used outside. As you would treat glass dishware, avoid shocking them by, for example, adding boiling water to a pot that has been refrigerated as it will likely crack. All my glazes are nontoxic. Being ceramic, they may develop cracks at some point, but they can still be used until they start leaking.
We ship insured Priority Mail or UPS Ground, domestic and internationally. The pot you purchase will be enshrouded in an artistically collected and formed recycled shield made of egg cartons, Styrofoam and other (clean) debris collected from our friends, family, and freecycle/craigslist re-users..
I don’t do them.
1. I invest a lot of time and thought into making a quality product. If you haven’t purchased it in person, where you have the opportunity to examine it thoroughly before purchase, then I will provide several images from
different angles for you to study. Each piece is unique, so there is no 1:1 exchange.
2. Pottery breaks. After it leaves my hands, I don’t know what knocks or beatings your pot may have taken. Inspect your piece carefully when it arrives. A hairline crack can creep into something larger over time. If a crack occurred during shipping, contact me immediately and I will initiate the insurance process and replace it. That said, I will put my cracked mugs in the dishwasher and use them daily.
If, gasp, something breaks on its way to you, photograph it INSIDE the box. Take as many pictures as you can capturing damage to the box, packing materials, and the broken item. Email these to me and I will pursue the insurance claim and send you a replacement.
“I use your mugs daily. I love the designs and wrapping my cold hands around the mug with hot tea in it is during in the morning a daily ritual for me :). I’ve bought a number of your mugs from you over the years. My house has 4 of them and I’ve also gifted a number of them to family. My kids love them too - they make big servings of hot chocolate in them before heading off to school.
You were at a arts and crafts fair at Fort Mason ~11 years ago, that is how I was introduced to you. I’m so glad you are still creating pieces.”
“Thanks for reaching out to me to let me know of your last sale. You had a great unique selection and it was fun to look at all of the work you offered.
On arrival to my home, it came in perfect condition. The packaging was conscientious and very well protected.
I am truly blown away by the apple tree serving bowl. It suits me perfectly. I love it.”
“Hello Liz - wanted to let you know that both orders arrived in good shape. The plates and plague doctors are so much more awesome in real life! And OMG what an amazing packing job and use of egg cartons. From the shape of the box I thought someone sent me a blanket. I hope you have elves to help, 'cause that clearly took some time and engineering. Will keep an eye on your website in case something comes out of the kiln that I can't live without (poison oak and snakes are hard to resist)”
“I recently ordered the apple tree bee hive wall plaque and one of your plague doctor mugs via the Kings Mountain Art Fair. I wanted to tell you how much I love them--they are even more beautiful in person--and thank you for your quick shipping, I ordered on Labor Day, and the package arrived in time for our anniversary (which was Friday) so I could give my husband the plaque, (The mug is a little gift to myself.)”
“Hi Liz. Stuck at home, but our honey pots mugs make us happy! My daughter and her husband have come to live with us from Boston through all of this craziness. I use the otter and octopus mugs. My husband has claimed the bear, and my kids use the new heron and gecko. They make us smile!
Thank you for bringing some cheeriness to our lives. Hope you are healthy and well and continue to be inspired during our quarantine. Blessings, ”
“The workmanship is even more impressive than I imagined, from the throwing to the "woodcut" work to the handle size, shape, and attachment... I feel like I'm holding the story of the whole process in my hands. Thank you again for such a well-executed piece of uniquely creative artistry!”
“I received the carafe today and absolutely love it! I'm enjoying my first cup of tea from it now. This is really going to brighten my days in the office-- thank you again!”
“I risk the life of my octopus mug by taking it to get coffee drinks to go in. EVERY time I take it out people want to know where to get them. I tell them. Thanks for bringing some creative joy into our lives.”
“Just wanted to let you know that I love the bunny butter bell!! It's beautiful and so much more functional than my old one. You did a great job with the design. Thank you again for making this special request. Hope all is going well for you and look forward to seeing you at another show.”
“I just received my Crow mug. Thank you!!!!!!! It is more beautiful than I could have imagined. It is a gift for my sister-in-law who owns & operates "Part Crow Jewellry" in London, Ontario Canada. She is going to adore it and is , of course, a huge supporter of independent artists so it's a total win/win! Thank you again!”
“Just got the mugs and plate in the mail today and they are absolutely stunning!!! My girlfriend will love the melon-headed whale plate and mug. Your work is truly unique and I thank you once again for takin on the challenge of incorporating a poorly known animal into your art.
I love my anglerfish mug too...especially love the little male attached to the bottom of the female!
Thanks again for everything!!!”
“Her booth always looks great and raises the bar on quality. Her prices are wide in range, so most everyone who wants to can take a piece home. Besides, her stuff is just plain FUN!!”
“Extremely high quality, artful, sturdy pottery, and nice people, too”
