Alternatively, please feel free to order from the shop. Please note that commissions over $400 require a 50% deposit upfront with the balance due on completion.

How long does it take to make each piece?

First the clay is wedged and then thrown on the wheel. Once shaped, it's left to dry. Then the piece is trimmed and left to dry completely before being bisque fired. The piece is sanded to remove any rough edges, then glazed, then fired again.

Who makes your pieces?

Commons is run by me, Sacha Mary-Raine Taylor, out of my home studio in Brisbane, QLD.

What makes something a 'Seconds' item?

Seconds are simply one-offs or old stock. 

I'm after a set of something, are your pieces identical?
