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.

We do not accept returns or exchanges on sales of seconds.
Elegant, light, forms are complemented by a clean and classic white glaze on our handmade Farmhouse Plates. The combination of stoneware clay and Peter's custom white glaze creates a smooth white surface, giving each plate a cool, elegant look and enhances the truly one-of-a-kind quality of each piece.
Each plate is fired twice. The final firing is in a cone 10, reduction atmosphere.
The final firing takes 15 hrs to reach the high temperature, requiring precision and monitoring to ensure the kiln is heated evenly, and two days to cool. This high-firing also ensures the piece to be highly durable.
We prefer this firing technique with all of our ceramics to ensure our pieces can endure wear and tear, daily use, and avoid chipping. We want you to use and enjoy your pottery daily, and last you a lifetime!
**All of our glazes are hand mixed and formulated from scratch in our studio and contain non-toxic, lead-free, all natural, food safe materials.
