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.

Our hand-thrown Silverlake tumblers are perfect for wine, spirits, or your beverage of choice. The Silverlake Collection combines both a modern and rustic feel, drawing from our time growing up in Vermont, surrounded by rural beauty and a life that demands functionality.
Our stoneware tumblers are inspired by the farm to table manner of home, with a comfortable slice of urban and industrial flair that makes the collection a must for today. The blond stoneware clay and raw rim is complemented by our custom glaze surface, carefully formulated entirely in house. When applied to a stoneware clay body, the iron in the clay produces a speckled effect throughout the celadon and stoneware white glazes during the process of high firing. Each tumbler is hand thrown and trimmed on the wheel. The combination of stoneware clay and our custom, speckled glaze gives each piece a contemporary, rustic feel, and enhances the truly one-of-a-kind quality of each piece.
We are sure you will agree, our Silverlake Collection is a beautiful addition to any table setting.
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!
