Horse Hair Pottery Mini Vase
These stunning horse hair pottery mini vase designs are approximately 3&3/4" tall. The horse hair is burnt into the pottery during the design process, meaning the hair will always appear dark brownish/black (as shown). These are a limited edition item and only available while supplies last. All vases start off-white, and additional coloring is from the hair additive.
The vase shown was created with approximately 20 strands of horse hair, each around 4" long. We can use more or less hair depending on what you have available. No two will ever be the same as each strand burns into the pottery in a unique way. If attaching a tassel as well, I recommend a bundle 1/2" in diameter, at least 3" long.
**Please note, if no vase shape is selected, vase shape A will be used automatically.
What to expect if you order:
Each product listing contains an estimate of how much hair will be needed for the design you have chosen. You can select to send in horse hair or, if you prefer, you may select to have your keepsakes created with my horse hair in your choice color(s). If you send in your own horse hair, any unused hair will be returned with your finished order.
After completing your order please mail your horse hair to:
P.O. Box 912
Monongahela, PA 15063
***Please note that you will be invoiced for a $25 fee if your horse hair arrives to me before your order is placed as this causes confusion and delays in the order process.
You do not need to wash the hair before mailing. I will do that once it arrives. I ask that you avoid braiding it if possible. If it is already braided please do not worry, I can still work with it! The only thing you need to do it contain the cut end of the hair so that it stays together during transit. (A rubber band is preferred over anything else, if possible.) If the hair is too short to band I simply ask that you place it in a zipper sealed baggy inside the bubble mailer.
Please mail in a bubble mailer with tracking via USPS (United States Postal Service). The tracking will allow you to verify when the package arrives. Additionally, please ensure that the name listed at checkout is the name listed on the return address section of the package, as this will ensure that I know the horse hair is yours upon arrival.
(Please do NOT ship wet horse hair as it will mildew in transit and likely be permanently ruined.)
My current estimated production times can be seen on my "FAQ" page. Rush orders are available if needed, more information on those rates can be seen as you progress through checkout. Once your order is finished you will receive an email containing tracking for your order. All orders are shipped with tracking via USPS. Orders over $250 will require a signature upon delivery.
