How to Order

RETAIL ORDERS:   Our retail production time typically runs 6-8 weeks, or longer during busier periods. Contact the office for our current production time.

Call, email, or fax us to place your order. Please have the following information ready prior to placing your order:

1) Full name, address and phone number

2) Shipping and billing information. Shipping charges will be determined by UPS rates for the weight of your items and your location. When placing an order by email PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR CITY AND ZIP so that we can give you an accurate total for your purchase.

3) Item number and name of the piece you want, the color (cobalt blue or hunter green) and personalization, if any

4) Method of payment.  We accept all major credit cards, personal checks, or money orders.  PA residents must be charged 6% sales tax. Shipping is determined by the weight and box size of the piece, and the shipping location.

For your safety, please do not include credit card information in your email – we may take it over the phone. All custom orders that ship out must be prepaid in full prior to the start of production. Orders that are to be picked up in store must have a deposit of 50% or greater.

WHOLESALE ORDER:    Are you interested in featuring Westerwald Pottery in your gift shop? We are happy to offer wholesale pricing to shops and organizations who meet our criteria. To find out if you qualify, and for current terms and pricing, please call or email the office.

Please keep in mind, variances in size, shape and glaze are to be expected. We use several potters with varying styles, and our products are affected by the moisture of the clay we use, as well as several other factors. While we are happy to be able to offer a level of consistency, our products will never be identical.

Due to a number of factors, we do not offer every piece shown for wholesale production. Orders are typically processed in 8-10 weeks, with the production time being longer during busier times. Some pieces take longer than others. Our goal is to get the majority of your order to you in a timely fashion. In order to achieve this goal, it is often necessary for us to ship partial orders, and back order the remainder of your pieces. We appreciate your patience in awaiting your handmade, personalized stoneware, and thank you for being a Westerwwald customer!

All sales are final.  However, in the case of defective merchandise Westerwald may authorize a return.  Please call within 10 days of receipt to explain defect.  Please retain the product and the box it shipped in until you have contacted us. A replacement or credit may be authorized.

IMPORTANT: Our famous pottery is wheel-thrown, imprinted, brush decorated, and fired to 2300 degrees Fahrenheit.  Because every piece is handmadeno two products are exactly alike. Variance in size and shape occur. Your pieces may also vary from those shown. Our glazes are lead-free, microwave, and dishwasher safe. We recommend hand-wash only for pottery with decals on it. All pieces are stamped with a potter’s mark, signed and dated. Westerwald prides itself in making unique items. The prices on this website are for our standard pieces, personalized with up to two lines of text, and decorated to our artist’s discretion. If  you are interested in something more specific, please call or email the office.
