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.

Collin was so helpful and the mortar and pestle is beautiful! He is so talented and kind. Could not be happier with this purchase and can’t wait to use it! You will be too!

Matched the description. Good quality stuff. The wife was happy...Thanks!

The aura prism mortar and pestle is gorgeous. My partner takes this out to show our chef friends (aka his actual colleagues who love cooking from scratch) on his zoom meetings!! I thought he would be leaving this one more for me but nope - it's too gorgeous and functional. It looks so delicate in photos yet so well made, sturdy, and gorgeous and I have no fear that we would damage it which is such a cool feeling for a beautiful artistic functional kitchen piece! It is gorgeous enough to simply be a show piece - like sound healing bowl or the likes! So grateful our goodies get to be mashed up with this treasure!

This piece is more amazing than I ever could have envisioned. i asked for a witchy mortar and pestle set and my goodness did this artist deliver!! Not only is his craftsmanship and attention to detail flawless, his unique and creative eye for art makes his pieces truly unique and one of a kind! I will absolutely be ordering from this artist again! Highly recommend, you will not be disappointed!

This was a gift and everything made by this seller is beautiful! He communicated about shipping which I appreciated. Will be buying from again!
