Mena Dragonfly is the work of Melanie Mena, I hand throw every piece on my potter’s wheel in my studio in Prince Edward County, Ontario.
As well, my husband Mark and I own & run
Mark has also been known to spend some time in the studio and recently we began collaborating on our new line of pottery inspired by The Black Licorice Tree. Mark hand draws his signature Black Licorice Tree design on hand thrown vases, mini vases and mugs.
You can read more about our studio & B&B in the Fall 2013 issue of the One Of A Kind ezine.
WHY WE'RE ONE OF A KIND
We believe using hand made products enlightens the overall experience of every day life. Though each piece is hand crafted it’s meant for daily use.
Mugs you wrap your hands around, the vase you always think of when you see orange gerberas, that set of mini bowls you love to use on sushi night.
Clay, glaze, love & fun.
I ship everything with Canada Post from Southern Ontario, Canada. I use the Regular Parcel option, which includes insurance of up to $100 for items sent within Canada.
Once you place your order I’ll let you know when it’s been shipped and the estimated arrival date. Shipping within Canada usually takes about a week or so. Packages shipped to the US or outside North America usually arrive in 3-4 weeks.
If you’d like to have your package arrive faster, or purchase extra insurance do let me know and I will get back to you with updated rates.
Broken pottery is not a lovely package to receive, is it?
If your pots have arrived damaged or broken please let me know within two days of receiving the package. I will gladly send you replacement items or you can opt for a full refund (less the shipping costs). It would also be very helpful if you could take a photo of the box for me.
Please note, that if you opt for a replacement it may take a few weeks for the replacement item to be made before it’s shipped.
The environment is important to me and I have done a lot of research to find packaging materials that are environmentally friendly and suitable for shipping pottery.
The boxes are sturdy corrugated cardboard and are made with recycled content. I use packing peanuts that are made from corn and are biodegradable (they actually dissolve in water, try it out). I also wrap the pottery with bubble wrap (which you can re-use) and tissue paper (which is recyclable).
I’m trying to minimize the impact I have on the environment and I’m open to your suggestions. Please do get in touch if you know of better packaging options.
