Sheldon Ceramics latest 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, and the urban life of Silverlake, CA.
Our stoneware dinner set is 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 is complemented by our Classic White glaze surface, carefully formulated entirely in house.
Hand thrown on the wheel, the contrast of the raw stoneware exterior and Classic White glaze interior gives each piece a contemporary, rustic feel. Unlike a traditional dinner plate, this collection has a flat plating surface and subtle, curved rim. The elegant and light form allows for ample plating surface, showcasing your special meal.
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!
