Another year has passed and the ceramics world saw big changes.... from shutdowns of talc mines and closing of not only small hobby shops but even larger supply businesses to numerous cost increases across the board. Keeping this art form accessible has become a challenge. We have had to make some major adjustments in how we do business. Restructuring our supply chains, discontinuing some perks, and yes a few internal price increases will enable us to move forward into 2022 and allow us to continue to supply our growing customer base with their ceramic needs.
Our biggest change will be that we can no longer offer flat fee shipping. Packing materials and shipping costs had several price increases this past year. We can no longer absorb the difference in shipping costs. By charging straight carrier based shipping charges we will be able to absorb some of the costs of materials to make our ceramics and keep piece prices down
