I am originally from Brazil and moved to the US in 1981 to attend College. I have lived in many different states mostly on the East coast and have finally settled down in Acworth Georgia. I am married to Joe Cassavaugh from PuzzlesbyJoe.com and have two wonderful grown kids Raul and Amanda. Joe has a son and daughter-in-law Daniel and Frances.
I am a full time Aeronautical Engineer by day and a Studio Potter by night. I have a passion for design and creating beautiful objects with clay. I’m always exploring new techniques with glazing, surface decorating and clay altering. I’ve always been very creative and love making and creating things with my own hands. While in College I’ve taken many Art related classes as Electives. I’ve done Stained Glass, Silver Jewelry Making, Porcelain dolls, to name a few. But what I really love is Pottery making.
Keep in mind that all my pieces are handmade and one-of-a-kind and sometimes small glaze variations/imperfections are expected. I do not sell any items with defects that would cause them to be unsafe to use. I am a perfectionist and I inspect and test my pieces before deciding to sell. I only use food, microwave and dishwasher safe glazes on all my functional ware.
The shipping cost includes insurance and I use priority mail which usually takes 2-3 days within the US. I do combine orders and will refund you the shipping overage charges. If for any reason you are not happy with your purchase, just notify me ASAP and return it for a full refund minus the shipping cost.
Feel free to ask me any questions about my pieces.
