SPICE JAR IN STONE
These small spice jars bring a touch of playfulness to the kitchen shelf. Each piece is hand-thrown on the potter’s wheel with small traces of the maker’s hands still visible in the lid and accompanying porcelain spoon. Perfect for housing spices, herbs, sugar or honey.
Our ceramics collection is carefully chosen to blend seamlessly with your existing kitchenware. As a result, the pieces can be collected one by one, slowly, over time.
The beauty of handmade ceramics lies in the unique variation and individual character of each piece. Skilfully hand-thrown using stoneware clay, each spice jar is fired, glazed and re-fired in a process that takes several days to complete. The all natural, non-toxic matte stone-coloured glaze is enhanced by subtle nuances of blue and lilac. Mixed from scratch and custom formulated to create just the right colour and texture, this glaze looks organic and understated and yet is full of surface variation. As the result of an intentional glazing process, the glaze is applied quite thickly and begins to take on a variegated and textured appearance, ultimately bringing more depth and complexity to a single glaze.
Each piece starts from natural ivory clay and is hand-crafted in California in the Sheldon Ceramics studio, one by one, making no two pieces exactly alike. Peter Sheldon has honed his craft all over the world and uses unique processes, such as a 5th-century firing technique, to achieve the signature relaxed yet refined look of his pieces.
Size: 7cm (D) x 5.7 (H) though exact sizes may vary. We celebrate the variations inherent in handmade items, we hope you feel the same way.
