Hi everyone.

Does anyone know what happened with Shawn from above ceramic studio's? Since today the Etsy store can't be found, and the user neither.. :cry:

He is posting on his Facebook page (Shawn McGuire). If you want to reach him I’d try messaging him vía FB.

Maybe there was a blip in the system. I found his Etsy page available just now.

Shop is up for me too. It's on my favorites list and I check it regularly. It's been a while since I saw a new firing from him, but he has made enough of my favorite pieces to keep it on the list.

Hi Everyone,

I just got a message back (well somewhere last night, but I only came back home now:). Seems he switched some things around and accidentally wasn't being found on Etsy anymore, now its back. And my heart raced for no reason.

I was almost going to dedicate this topic to his work if he were gone for good. I'm also a big fan of Shawn's work, i have a bunch of it.

One of my favorite pieces is this shib. Shawn was using a crawling glaze d on this piece it looks to me as if it was painted on by a calligrapher. No point in not getting a beautiful cup from the same firing, so here are 2 views of this set. Like all of Shawn’s pieces the tea ware works. I use this set for genmaicha and the rim stays cool and the shib is easy to manage even with boiling water.

What a beautiful textural set @Janice. Also, your rattan mat is awesome.

When I was in Thailand visiting my son and traveling around we stopped in a village of basket weavers. I got to try my hand at weaving and then found these hot pads in the village shop. The round one makes a perfect cushion on the ceramic tray and hot pads take up very little room in luggage.

I had a similar but not quite so nice shino shibo from Shawn that met an early demise courtesy of a tile floor and cat. Your set is lovely.

I just ordered two bowls from his etsy a week ago and have received no shipping notification, and no reply to my messages to him. I guess he's been inactive for quite a while? I hope he gets back to me.....

I just received my order. I did get a notification that my order was going to be a little late. As consolation, Shawn kindly added a lovely cup to my order..even though the order really was not late at all. Talk about great customer service...and stunning work.

I really love his work. We always have 1 of his 'fair cups' in our rotation!

I would love to see pictures of the 'fair cups' and any other pieces by Shawn. I will try and get some pictures pf my cups and jar during my next tea session.

I just discovered Shawn's work..this was my first order. I was blown away by his pieces....they have a presence and structure that, despite excellent picturess on his site, really need to be seen and handled in person. My budget is pretty skimpy but I plan to get some more of his pottery soon. Speaking of budget, I think his work is way under priced for the quality.
