Q1. I have placed an order but have not received an email.
A. When you place an order, you will automatically receive an order confirmation email from firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, we usually ship items within 5 days (excluding Sundays) after placing an order. At the product shipping stage, we will send you an email containing the shipping company's tracking number. If you do not receive the e-mail, it may have been sorted into the spam folder, promotional mail, campaign mail, etc., so please check the folders. In addition, there are many emails from overseas such as mobile emails (au, docomo) and qq.com, 126.com, 163.com, but it seems that there are cases where the settings are set to not receive them. Please set it so that you can receive emails from our shop ( email@example.com) or let us know the address where you can contact us.
Q2. I would like to know the arrival information.
A. We will inform you of new arrival schedule information as soon as possible by e-mail magazine (irregular). Registration is at the bottom of the top page , so please register! Also, if you join LINE friend , we will send you a notification several hours before the sales start, so you can receive the information without leaking it. We also provide information on various SNS ( Instgram , FB , Twitter ), so please take advantage of it.
Q3. I would like to reserve an item.
A. Depending on the pottery situation of the artist, the price, design, color, etc. may change from the previous one. In addition, the page of the sold out item will display a button that says ''Notify me when it is back in stock''. If you set the notification, you will be notified by email when the product is in stock, so please take advantage of it. *Please note that we do not guarantee stock availability. In addition, because it is a handmade work, it may differ from the previous color and texture. If you think that the image is different on our side, we will replace the product photo, so we recommend checking before purchasing.
Q4. I want to cancel or exchange my order.
A. Please contact us by email or phone within 7 days after the product arrives. In case of cancellation due to customer's convenience (including wrong image and wrong order), the customer will be responsible for the shipping fee and each handling fee when returning the product. Please note that only the product price will be refunded, and the shipping fee at the time of delivery will not be refunded. Also, please note that we cannot accept exchanges or returns in the following cases.
Products that have passed 8 days or more from the date of arrival
Product used once
Items that have been soiled or damaged by the customer after arrival
When accessories such as product boxes, tags, and instructions are lost, defaced, or damaged
If you have not contacted us in advance to request a return or exchange
When it is determined that the product cannot be returned or exchanged due to our judgment
Q5. The product is different from the photo and I want to exchange it.
A. Most of the products we carry are handmade by artists and potters, and no two are the same. In addition to the inspection by the artist and pottery side, we sell products that have passed our inspection standards. Handmade products have different inspection standards from mass-produced products, and fluctuations and handmade individual differences are considered to be rich expressions and become good products. Please understand this before purchasing. If you have any concerns, please feel free to contact us as we can send you an image of the actual product by email before shipping. In addition, we will accept exchanges only once for unused items due to customer convenience (including differences in image) after arrival. The shipping fee is the responsibility of the customer, so please be sure to contact us in advance by email within 7 days after arrival. ** We do not accept exchanges due to individual differences or image differences for overseas shipments or orders for those who live overseas.
Q6. I would like to have multiple orders shipped together.
A. Orders placed outside business hours (18:00 to 09:59 on the next business day) will be shipped together. If you wish, please write your request in the remarks column when ordering, or if you contact us by 9:59 the next day, we will send it together. If you contact us by email, please contact our store (firstname.lastname@example.org). In that case, we will charge only one shipping fee and refund the difference. However, if you choose to pay later (Paidy), we will combine shipping, but refunds for postage adjustment will not be possible. Please note.
In addition, in the case of popular authors and products, we may not be able to bundle them together. We would appreciate your understanding in order to deliver the goods to everyone as soon as possible.
Q7. Mold has grown during use.
A. Compared to porcelain and semi-porcelain, pottery tends to contain more moisture, which can cause stains and mold if not dried properly. Also, wood products tend to retain moisture, so please dry them thoroughly after use. Please refer to the product page for recommended care instructions for each product. Also, if you don't mind, please refer to the page that describes in detail about "caring for the container". here
Q8. Can I use the microwave or dishwasher?
A. Most of pottery's porcelain and semi-porcelain can be used without problems. However, even porcelain and semi-porcelain works by individual artists are often delicate, so we do not recommend them. Also, compared to porcelain and semi-porcelain, if you use a microwave oven or dishwasher for a long time, the fabric will shrink and cause deterioration, so please refrain from using it. If you have to, we recommend using it warm. Items with gold color or delicate workmanship are not permitted regardless of whether they are pottery, porcelain, or semi-porcelain. Please refer to each product page for recommended care instructions for each product.
Q9.What kind of packaging does it come in?
A.At our shop, we believe that it is very important to safely deliver to our customers wonderful works created with the artist's passion. This is because I would like to enjoy the thrill of opening the package, and to avoid the momentary disappointment when something is damaged. Therefore, we pack as carefully as possible. Maybe a little too packed? Some people may think that, but I hope you can understand that it is to protect the works that the creators put a lot of time and effort into. In addition, we do not use the part that the work touches, but some recycled materials may be used for the parts that do not touch. Please note.
Q10.Where is the delivery company?
A.Basically, we use Yamato Transport. However, although there are few cases, depending on the delivery area, we may also send by Japan Post or Sagawa Express.
