This listing is for a PAINTED 

Custom Pet Portrait Ornament or Magnet with ONE pet!

Purchasing this listing orders ONE portrait of ONE pet on a handmade pottery ornament or magnet. 


My painted designs are a more cartoon-like portrait of your pet, while the carved style will be more detailed. 


My pottery magnets and ornaments are made from flat clay slabs, cut and polished before each portrait is painted onto the clay to match your pet's coloring. The pet portrait is painted on top of a bright white clay slip and coated with a clear finish, so the drawing will not fade away or wear off. 

You will enjoy this precious keepsake for years and years!


Thanks for checking out my handmade pet portrait pottery!




New orders are on a WAITLIST!  Try to order at least 3 months ahead of your need-by date.  (For more specific turnaround time, email


**After you complete the purchase and email your photos, I will contact you with more information regarding your waitlist position. Be patient- it may take me a few weeks to respond and send an update on your order. 

You must email pet photos directly to Have them ready before purchasing this item. Check the email you are sending photos from. You will receive a reply from me on that email account. (iphones love to send photos from iCloud emails and no one checks them.)



**The best photos show the pet front-facing, looking at the camera, and sitting. While taking a photo, squat down lower so your pet doesn't look up to the camera. (This distorts the perspective and makes the nose too big.)

You can send multiple photos to show the face, body, and tail. 


**Most important is a face looking at the camera**

If the photos are good quality and follow my requests, the portrait drawing will be much better! (Look at the product photos for examples of how I draw the pet sitting.) 


**Fill out the product options and input necessary information for your pottery order. Reference the product photos inspiration. 


**If you have specific characteristics you would like me to highlight (one ear up, coloring, tongue out, etc), please note that in the space provided. (Add-on items are available such as a colored bandana, santa hat, dog toy, halo, etc for extra cost. Check the shop page for the "Add-on item" listing and add it to your cart along with your pet portrait item. These additions really add personality to your pet)


**Write your pet's name carefully to check spelling. Include the pet's breed if you know. This helps if I need to look up photos for reference. 


**When your waitlist time arrives, I will email a sketch drawing of the pet for your approval. 


** Does your pet have an instagram? I love to tag accounts in the work in progress (unless it is a surprise!) Let me know the @ in the notes!
