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.

Sleek and elegant forms are complemented by Peter's custom Satin Black glaze on our handmade plates. The combination of stoneware clay and high fired black glaze creates warm effect on the surface, giving each plate a rustic look and enhances the truly one-of-a-kind quality of each piece.
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.
