Is your showroom in Portland open to the public?
Yes, our showroom in Portland is open 10am to 5pm seven days a week by appointment. Just give us a call ahead to time to make sure we haven’t wandered off to the local coffee shop again. The Gardens of Lonesomeville are open May through October every year.
How long does it take to receive shipment?
Because we have examples of all our designs and glazes in our showroom, most orders generally ship within a week. If, by chance, the piece is not in stock, we will ship your order within three weeks.
Do your vases hold water?
Because our pottery his all high fire, it is stronger and less prone to surface chips than low-fire pottery more common in mass production pottery. The down side is that high fire is also more porous than low fire pieces and can "sweat". This being said, our pieces do hold water and we use them regularly here at Lonesomeville. We recommend, however, that water not be left standing in a piece without sitting it on a tile coaster or cloth runner as a protective layer between the vase and wooden furniture.
