A wonderful teacher once told me on the first days of class…
“You can’t “CRAM” art!”
This was of course in reference to the idea that you cannot start a painting the night before the critique – unlike “cramming” for a textbook exam. He’s only partly right though, I mean, if you just want some paint slapped on the canvas – we can do that – BUT, the point is that beautiful, well crafted artisan work does not get produced overnight. You don’t want it to! The results are generally mediocre at best.
Happy Hollow’s Zero Waste process helps provide the largest SAVINGS & HIGHEST quality artist direct – Functional Fine Art! This is a unique shopping experience designed to minimize unnecessary material and studio costs.
All Happy Hollow Glass is handcrafted by Lotte`, then properly annealed to ensure only the highest quality work gets shipped – Creation of each piece is a multi-step process taking a minimum of 24 – 36 hours.
Ready to Ship items will leave Happy Hollow within 24 – 36 BUSINESS hours.
Made to order items will be created in the order they are received. Annealed, inspected, packaged and shipped within 3-5 BUSINESS days of purchase. (This time has recently been extended)
Rarely – based on the number of pieces ordered and torch schedule – it may between 5 and 7 BUSINESS days to fully process ANY order.
Priority mail is offered to provide insurance as well as slightly faster package delivery service. Made to order items will still take a minimum of 24 - 36 hours to be complete depending on torch schedule - this does NOT included shipping time.. All orders are 100% - individually handcrafted by Little Lotte` [hr]
The following is intended to provide further detail of the order and shipping process.
Due to a variety of sales avenues required to share this work with the ENTIRE world ~ there is a rare chance for a piece to have sold at a local venue, gallery, or event.
While technology makes it possible for me to keep an accurate inventory “virtually” real time – occasionally – items do sell simultaneously.
Tracking information and order NOTES from Lotte` will be added to your account.
Rest assured – You will receive a stunning handcrafted art glass piece by Lotte` – (Me) I am currently the sole creator of every piece of Happy Hollow Glass!
[highlight]Lucky You ~ Every piece is a unique one of a kind![/highlight]
Happy Hollow Glass is shipped via USPS: First Class, Priority, International First Class, and Priority International. Priority mail does offer some of its own perks including insurance and is available as an option on checkout.
Estimates and delivery dates are not created or guaranteed by Happy Hollow Glass.
You can expect packaging similar to that shown here or above depending on your choice; each will have the studio name “Happy Hollow Glass” in the return address section.
While my creations may include an occasional smoking pipe, the history of each unique item stems much deeper. These works are inspired by functional, historical and cultural vessels found in Greek and Egyptian times and are born from a Zero Waste Philosophy.
