please note, unless specified in the product listing, all pieces are handmade to order. Due to this, production time may take 2-4 weeks.



As a small-batch ceramic studio we produce on a smaller scale, in limited quantities. This way, we can reduce waste and take our time in crafting high quality, authentic pieces. We take care to create sustainable production cycles, working with nature instead of against nature.

Production Time:

Each piece is handcrafted by real hands, which takes time. If your order is currently not in stock, we will make it to order, meaning your piece will be made just for you. Production time can take between 2-5 weeks, and shipping time will vary depending on where you're located. Please view Shipping Guidelines for more details.

Please be aware that load shedding may cause extended production time.


Unless stated otherwise in the product listing, all pieces are made-to-order. Production time for your unique piece is approximately 2-4 weeks. Production time does not include delivery time, and may be affected by load shedding.

Shipping Times:

Please allow 1-3 business days for order fulfilment of in-stock items and another 2-4 business days for delivery.

As soon as your made-to-order items are ready, we'll dispatch it. Please allow 2-4 business days for delivery.

Shipping Costs:

We charge a flat rate of R70 for standard economy shipping throughout South Africa and R120 for next day delivery (once the order is ready for dispatch).

Priority Shipping:

Should you require in-stock items to be shipped immediately, please connect with us at to arrange same-day fulfilment. Please note this may come at an additional cost.

Shipping Partner:

All items are shipped with the Courier Guy. Once your order ships from our studio, you will receive an email with tracking information.

Alicasa Ceramics is not liable for lost or stolen packages and releases responsibility upon transfer of order to the shipping carrier. We will not be held responsible for additional shipping charges incurred if packages are returned to our studio due to customer absence, errors in shipping addresses or package refusal.

International Shipping:

Please get in touch should you wish to arrange international shipping.


Food Safe | Dishwasher Safe | Microwave Safe | Not Recommended for Oven Use | Stackable

All our ceramics are 100% stoneware and fired to very high temperatures. This makes them durable and perfect for everyday use. Each piece is dishwasher safe, although it's always best to wash by hand to help extend the life of the piece.

It is not recommended to use our pieces in the oven or over an open flame.



We will indicate on each product how many items are in-stock. If there is no stock count shown, please continue with your order and your pieces will be made-to-order. We will begin production on your items immediately, and communicate via email as to the status of your order.

If a product is out of stock, it means we are not currently producing that item and you are not able to proceed with the order.

Nomadic Homeware:

Our nomadic homeware pieces are sourced from around the continent, and we return from our sourcing trips with a set amount of stock. So once an item goes out of stock, it is gone for good.

Yes. All orders are packaged using recyclable/biodegradable paper, cardboard, and paper tape. We kindly ask customers to recycle, reuse and/or compost the packaging to eliminate landfill waste. In some cases we use post-consumer packaging, ie. re-used from other vendors. It may not be pretty, but it's better for our planet. We appreciate your understanding.


All our pieces are lovingly handcrafted and as such, each piece may vary slightly in size, shape and colour.

We try our best to ensure all products are accurately displayed online, especially regarding their colour, but actual colour may be slightly different from what you see on your screen.

Natural variations are part of the nature of ceramics and we appreciate your understanding. You can also view more photo's and video's on our instagram page, @alicasaceramics, to make a more informed decision.
