Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play
My Online Pottery Store

For years I have only sold my pottery through art fairs, home shows & studio sales… and an occasional Facebook pop-up sale. But with everything in the world changing so quickly, I have found that I need to change along with it. So I’m adding this online shopping option here on my blog.

HOW TO PURCHASE SOME POTTERY
I will continue to update & add more pieces to this page. If you see something you would like to purchase, just send me a quick e-mail to gary@firewhenreadypottery.com – and I will mark it “SOLD” here on the blog… and delete the image & description once confirmed. Once I get your email, I will follow-up with more purchasing specifics… but it’s easy… you can pay in so many ways, and I ship it to you! Done. I’m trying to keep this very simple & easy for all of us!

Therefore, prices posted include packing & shipping within the contiguous US. If you live elsewhere, we would need to figure out the additional shipping fees. If you purchase multiple items, or live in Chicago, we may be able to work out a discount on the shipping costs as well.

PLEASE NOTE: The identifying descriptions & piece numbers
are all shown ABOVE each of the photos!

MUGS ————————————————————–
Always my favorite thing to make. I love how every mug has its own personality & style. Making mugs requires a lot of steps in the process, but it’s a labor of love. All of my mugs are food-safe, dishwasher-safe, microwave-safe. And they come with a “guarantee” that they’ll make your morning coffee taste even better!

Many of the soda-fired mugs have dramatic flashing effects from the firing process, so I will show both sides of most mugs for comparison… with the “back-side” being shown in the inset box in the corner. And remember, prices posted include packing & shipping within the contiguous US.

SPOON RESTS ————————————————————–
One of the MOST “functional” pieces I make… everyone who uses one LOVES it! The perfect place to set down that goopey spoon or spatula while you’re cooking. And then once it gets all messy… you just pop it in the dishwasher!!! So much better than a piece or paper towel or tin foil… or getting the countertop all messy!

All of the spoon rests are approximately 5″ in diameter. I’ve used the same “standard teaspoon” in each photo to help demonstrate size… and to make the “purpose” of the spoon rest itself very obvious!!! Each spoon rest is $35 which includes packing & shipping within the contiguous US.
