Production Time

All Laura Zindel ceramic products are made to order in our Vermont studio. Our work is always made to order by hand. Because of the wide variety of our products we do not carry stock and orders typically take 1-3 weeks to ship. Your ship date is based on the quantity and type of items ordered. You will receive an email with an estimated ship date within 48 hours of placing your order.

We appreciate your patience and understanding of our process and the time that it takes to make your order.. just for you.

How do I know if my piece is Handmade or Dinnerware?

Handmade items have our logo stamped into the clay on the bottom of each piece. If you run your finger over the logo you will be able to feel the logo pressed into the clay surface.

Dinnerware items have our logo fired on the bottom of each piece in the same way that our designs are fired to the clay surface. If you run your finger over the logo on the bottom it will be smooth to the touch.
