All white pots are the same clay.
Difference in color is due to my "expert photography skills!" The terra cotta pots are all different
colors due to the inconsistancies coming from the clay producers and their supply source. Since all the pots look the
same size in these photos, keep in mind that a dollar bill is 6" long, so look at the measurements of the piece (located
at the bottom of the picture) and that will give you a good reference for the size. Some of you have asked how dog hair
would do so I did one, it does work, just not as strong a dark line as the coarse horse tail hairs. Cat hair
also works, Leona the cat is shown on page two.
Well, you do live and learn. I always reply to your email inquiries. I don't
usually save your email info until you order. I have learned that even when it says the email reply was "successfully
sent" that my reply doesn't always arrive--must be out there in cyber space somewhere. So, from now on, I
will save your email address and if I don't hear back from you in a couple of days, I will send you another email as a courtsey
to make sure it got to you.
HOW TO ORDER A POT
a pot from my three pages. Make sure it does not say SOLD or ON HOLD. Check the neck of the pot if you want some
hair added around the pot after the horsehair firing. Some of my older pots do not have an indented lip enough to hold
the hair in place. I try and pick glass beads that fit the name of the horse or a color you want (if it's in my box
of beads). There is no extra charge for adding the hair, beads or color on the pot. I just want to do your horse
proud! I get a tremendous amount of pleasure from sharing your love of your horse. You horse people are just plain
2. Send the hair to my address.
Include the name of your horse, or other animal and any dates you want engraved on the bottom of the pot. Be sure and
write clearly. I always email you as soon as I receive your horse hair or payment, so if you don't hear back from me
on either of those occasions within a 10 day period, please email me to see if they got to me ok. Not had a problem
except for one time.
3. I try and do the pot within
two days of receiving your hair. I email you a photo of the finished piece and the shipping costs. I ship by United
States Postal Service, parcel post. I get a tracking no. and insurance. The cost averages from $12 to $16 for
a 12" x 12" box. Most fall in the $12.50 range. You pay me when you receive the pot intact and
you like it. After all this time, I've only had one person not pay.
