Each one of these unique pieces is wheel thrown (made on the pottery wheel) with each crystal individually hand cut and placed. Every piece is stamped and signed by the artist.

If you'd like an ombre effect (your choice of two colors gradating one to the other) 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

"What is 'Lead Time'?"

"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 don’t live in the US and am concerned about a fragile ceramic piece shipping a great distance. Would my order arrive safely?"

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.

"Can I actually use the Crystal Mug/Tumbler to drink out of or is it solely decorative?"

My Crystal Mug/Tumbler is fully functional. I include detailed care instructions with every piece. They are not microwave safe and I recommend hand washing.

"Can you make the crystals smaller or do a different design than what you currently offer?"

I was inspired by large crystals and my sweeping formation has now become signature to Essarai Ceramics. I do offer the "Crystal Lite" mug which features smaller crystal clusters. 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’m afraid of an injury using one of your pieces; should I be concerned?"

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.

"Your work is very expensive. Do you have sales?"

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.

Are the crystals real?

They are not; I individually hand carve each crystal out of porcelain. The benefit of this is that you have an entirely ceramic piece fired as one making it 100% stable versus something where an epoxy was used.

I love this mug so much! The sapphire turned out so beautiful with the opal. It’s sturdy, arrived promptly, and is a great size. Can’t wait to purchase more!

My mug is absolutely gorgeous. The photos are beautiful but seeing this mug in person just makes me so happy. I was going to only use it for special occasions but this is going to be the only mug I ever use. It makes tea and coffee taste way better too. 😜

Sapphire/Aquamarine obre with matte black base and platinum handle. Really liked this mug and so did the person I gifted it to. I spent so much time trying to decide on colour combinations and wish I had chosen some other colours just because I think the crystal ombre I chose was too subtle for my taste. I do wish there was more of a log of images from other orders made to be able to see how the ombre, crystal, mug and handle comes together. I spent so much time in the image reviews looking for it. If there is an image gallery somewhere such as social media or a website with images from each piece this artist creates that would have been so helpful. Will definitely order from here again.

My bestie loves it!! It looks so amazing and it got to her faster than I thought it would! Definitely going to look at this shop for gifts in the future!

Very beautiful and unique, thank you!
