If you'd like an ombre effect on your crystals, select OMBRE for the Crystal Color drop-down and enter “(base crystal color/tip crystal color)” in the notes during check out.
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
"Lead Time" is the time is takes me to create your order from start to finish. Quoted lead time does not include delivery time as I have no control over mail systems.
I have safely shipped over 1,000 pieces internationally for over two years now. I ship pieces using double-corrugated cardboard boxes, biodegradable packing peanuts and sturdy bubble wrap. I package pieces to withstand a 5 foot throw as recommended by USPS. I have spent a great deal of time and energy making your piece and you have patiently waited for your purchase- I am as invested in your piece arriving safely as you are.
My Crystal Mug/Tumbler is fully functional. I include detailed care instructions with every piece and also have the care instructions on my website (essaraiceramics.com) in case they are misplaced. They are not microwave safe and I recommend hand washing.
I was inspired by large crystals and my sweeping formation has now become signature to Essarai Ceramics. As an artist, I believe it’s important to stand apart and offer a different perspective on a genre which is occupied by several other artists.
I offer multiple perspectives of my work on Instagram as I’ve received comments that may imply ones eyes could be injured utilizing my work. These perspectives serve to show that the crystals are strategically positioned to angle away from the face and are not vertical. This was something that I was aware of when I designed my collection and have never experienced an issue with someone injuring themselves using one of my pieces.
From the start of my business, my goal has always been to share my art as fairly as possible; I have to make a living and pay bills (student loans!). I’ve spent many nights going back-and-forth with my pricing structure, looking at what other artists sell their work for and ultimately feel that I am offering the best price for my work. I offer an array of different pieces that span a large price range; I believe that everyone deserves to be surrounded by inspiration and beauty. As a small batch artist, I do not offer sales as the supply costs and energy that goes into every piece remains the same. I do however offer a discount coupon for individuals who take the time to leave a written review on my Etsy.

I have been obsessing over this gorgeous creation since it arrived in the mail today. It is stunning and so beautiful, and it sits so nicely among my crystals. I had requested a triple ombre effect and Collin worked his magic to create a seamless color draining blend. As always it was packed with care and arrived safe and sound with no problems. My only teeny tiny complaint is that I placed this order on May 22 and received my order August 15. It took much longer to ship than expected, even greater than 11 weeks. But that being said, Collin was very responsive and helpful and I always kept in mind that good things take time, this being no exception. I would love to have every single piece in the shop and I highly recommend Essarai Ceramics to anyone looking for a unique ceramic piece. Thank you so much Collin!

Is this not the most spectacular paperweight? After a few conversations with Collin, this carnelian/amethyst belage creation came to life. I LOVE it!!! I especially like the crystal effect at the base. Carefully packaged for a safe delivery.
