FAQ

 

How do I pay and is it safe?

 

Payment is easy.

Klomp Ceramics accepts credit card, EFT or regular account payments in ZAR, all through secure Payfast.  Although, if you do have an account, you may use it. We also accept bank deposits.

INTERNATIONAL shoppers can shop at the Klomp Ceramics Etsy store.

 

When and how will my order ship?

All orders ship from Cape Town, South Africa and will be processed within 3 to 5 working days of purchase.

Orders are delivered via courier to your door within 1-5 working days depending on your location at an added flat rate fee of R 60.00 ZAR. Free delivery for orders over R 600.00 ZAR. Parcels are tracked.

You are more than welcome to collect from the Klomp studio in Cape Town CBD at no extra cost to you. Should you select this option we will email you back to set up an appointment.

All Klomp items are wrapped beautifully in paper ready to gift, then packaged with extra care in recycled packaging. To date I haven't had a breakage and have shipped worldwide.

 

Can I return items once purchased?

If you find there is a problem with your order please contact me within three days of receiving your order. A full refund or exchange can be given upon the safe return of the item, unused and in its original packaging. Return items must be properly packaged, so there are no breakages. Please note that shipping costs are non-refundable.
We accept returns only via door-to-door courier.
 

 

May I place a special order, order wholesale, or visit your studio?

Yes to all! Please contact me. 

 

Is each collection different?

Yes, each collection is different depending on what inspires me at the time. I am however willing to make certain pieces from past collections. You can have a look at my catalogues here.

 

What can I expect from my Klomp Ceramics purchase?

All Klomp Ceramics items are unique, hand-built porcelain or stoneware pieces. Each piece is made and glazed by my hand adding to its individual organic quality and character. 

All pieces when glazed are done so using lead free, food-safe glazes unless otherwise stated. 

I love and am proud of each and every one of my pieces, as I hope you will be when they pass over to you. 

 

How do I care for and clean my Klomp Ceramics purchase?

I recommend washing your functional Klomp Ceramics pieces by hand by wiping them with warm soapy water, avoid soaking, and ensure any unglazed areas are dried well. Textured areas can be gently bristle brushed clean. It is however possible to put most pieces, unless otherwise stated, into the dishwasher.

I don't recommend using any Klomp Ceramics pieces in the microwave. 

Unglazed surfaces are water and stain resistant but not stain proof so please be sure to clean food (especially oily or red sauces) from these surfaces immediately after use. Warm water mixed with baking soda applied with a bristle brush is gentle and works well.

I fire my porcelain and stoneware clays to a very high temperature which makes the pieces pretty resistant and very durable.

Thank you for shopping at Klomp Ceramics!
