Just send me a couple of clear images your pet with a good close up of the face, and I will sculpt his/her image and include it into the yarn
bowl of your choice.
Yarn Bowl Sizes
Your custom yarn bowl can be created in one of three sizes: regular, large or extra large.
- A regular size yarn bowl holds 50 grams / 1.76 oz skeins of yarn. The regular yarn bowl is best for knitters of small items such as socks, gloves, scarves, and

adult sweaters and lap blankets.

And you decide if you want a left handed (aka Continental) yarn bowl or a right handed one. Whichever side you place your yarn is the handedness to select.

add the second with your order.
About Your Yarn Bowl
These yarn bowls are made deliberately heavy to help prevent tipping and movement if the yarn is tugged.
Each custom handcrafted yarn bowl is made by first throwing/turning on the wheel, then altered with a sculpture of your pet when the clay is leather hard. The
personalized yarn bowl is slipped (color clay added), underglazed, glazed, and twice fired, the last time to 2232ºF.
S&H in the USA = $Free.
All other countries, please inquire.
Custom work Guarantee:
Thank you for your consideration in trusting this artist. I've shown some of my work on this page so that you can see the style in which I sculpt. The work I make of your pet will be in the same style as my previous work shows.
You will have several opportunities to approve my work to your standards. Any refunds requested will be made as follows:
1. Image is sculpted. Your approval is needed.
About 1-2 weeks after placing your order, you will be sent an email photo of your sculpted pet portrait (sculpted but not yet on the bowl, nor decorated with color).
You will have 48 hours to approve the work once you receive the image. I apologize, but I cannot offer a longer time because the clay dries over time and becomes unworkable. If I haven't heard from you by the third reminder, I will automatically cancel your order and refund you 50% of the amount paid. The remaining 50% will be applied toward paying my time for design work, sculpting and materials restocking.
I really wish you to be happy with my work, though, and will work hard to please you. When you get the email with your pet's sculpted image, you are welcome to ask questions or make changes if you see something you want changed. I am always happy to make small alterations that are related to that pet's image at no extra charge. If, after the changes, you are unhappy with the artwork at this point for any reason, you can cancel your order and get a refund of the amount paid minus 50% for design work, sculpting, materials restocking, wheel thrown bowl, etc., and I will waive the remaining balance due.
Once you are happy with what you see, you will give your approval via email and I will work toward completing your order in its entirety.
2. The custom order is finished. Your second and final payment is needed.
Once your custom pet portrait on a yarn bowl has gone through the second kiln firing and is finished, I will have done the work to your specifications. When your custom pet portrait yarn bowl has been completed, you will be emailed a link to a personalized listing on this website to complete payment. At that time you will have the ability to view the custom yarn bowl online and approve the finished work. Your approval happens by making the last half payment of your order. If you chose to not complete the 2nd payment after 60 days, your non-payment action affirms your agreement that the yarn bowl is considered legally abandoned.
3. You'll Love It Guarantee:
Once your custom yarn bowl is in your hands, if you don't love it, you are welcome to request a return for a full refund, minus return shipping.
Guarantee about Shipping Damages: I’ve shipped hundreds of yarn bowls safely. I double box and cushion yarn bowls well. However, should there be an issue with the shipping, please know that I will do my best to correct any issue to your satisfaction.
Your custom yarn bowl will ship within two business days of your final payment.
