Each piece at Sheldon Ceramics is made by skilled hands. This process invariably creates pieces outside of our threshold for standard retail sales. These slightly less-than-perfect pieces come with a blemish or two, which adds to their unique personality. Each second is completely unique, with imperfections that range from uneven glazing to glaze pinholes to the piece being slightly off-round, or slumped. We assure you the pottery is still completely functional.

Handmade stoneware bud vases in our new, custom matte glazes are the perfect accent to any room. They're a gorgeous addition to dining tables, entryways, mantels and more!
Our bud vases are perfect for housing your favorite fresh cut flowers, but can also stand on it's own as a gorgeous home accent. The various sizes offer something for every room and occasion. They're also lovely when placed together as a decorative collection. As with all of our pieces, we strive to offer unique, one-of-a-kind ceramics that are both functional and decorative in design.
These bud vases are hand thrown and trimmed on the wheel using a stoneware clay body. We then glaze and re-fire the piece using our custom, Slate matte glazes. All of our glazes are made from scratch in our studio, and use all natural, non-toxic and lead-free materials.
Each piece is fired twice. The final firing is to cone 10, approximately 2,300 degrees. A cone 10 firing differs from low firing techniques often used, and ensures each piece to be highly durable.
The final firing takes 15 hrs to reach the high temperatures necessary, and three days to cool.
We prefer this firing technique with all of our ceramics, to ensure our pieces can endure wear and tear, daily use, and avoid chipping. Our pottery is meant to be used and enjoyed daily. It's made to last you a lifetime!
***All of our glazes are formulated and mixed from scratch in our studio, and contain non-toxic, all natural, food safe materials.
