Responsible Manufacturing by The Handprintlady!

If you care about how your purchases impact the community and the world, you can feel good about each purchase from The Handprintlady. 
We use certified non toxic and lead free clay and glazes.  They are also sourced locally and manufactured in the USA.  The money I use to purchase my materials goes back into the local economy and also supports several family owned companies here in the USA. 
I hire local talent to help, again helping the local economy.  Your money does not go overseas, or displace someone's job here.  It does not go anywhere to abuse women or children or take advantage of migrant workers. 
I reuse and recycle and mostly upcycle 99% of my products, as do most potters.  I do use an electric kiln, wish I could use a natural gas kiln, but the laws of my city where I work do not allow this yet.  I do fire only full kilns to save resources, especially during summer. 
Your purchase from the Handprintlady may take quite a while, and have unique characteristics.  In this day and age of Amazon and Photoshop, it is a refreshing way of supporting handmade craftsmanship, which is always worth the wait and extra effort. 
I support handmade and local artisans and crafters always with my purchasing dollars.  There is lots of good Karma when you purchase from The Handprintlady.  Thank you for your support.

This was for a customer whose mother passed away shortly after.  She is placing it on her desk, she says so she can hold her mother's hand every once in a while.

I made the garden stepping stone for this soldier, who died before she was born.  Mr. Postman drop kicked it and broke the first one in three pieces, so I remade it for her.  Custom glaze to match the gravestone without detracting from it.

Did you order this Red Envelope Frame? I can do AWESOME prints for it!

I have gotten so many requests for this I thought I should share:  this red envelope frame for baby's hand and footprint and picture is a very popular gift.
Many of my customers have received it, but the clay they give you to make a print is horrible, and usually they are unable to get a usable print.  Guess what?  I can do it for you!  I can make either an inprint or outprint to fit the frame beautifully.  Call for a quick print appointment and you can get a professional print to put inside your gift!
