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

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 ABOVE each of the photos!

COVID-19 NOTE:
Of course, all of this depends on USPS and UPS
staying open and considered “essential” services.

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.
