EGGSHELL SPICE JAR
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 hand-thrown 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 jar is fired, glazed and re-fired in a process that takes several days to complete. The matte eggshell glaze is mixed from scratch and custom formulated to create just the right colour and surface texture. The unique colour is the result of a temperamental and delicate process that requires precision and expertise. This all-natural, completely non-toxic glaze represents the outcome of dozens of trials that ultimately resulted in a perfect, timeless colour. The matte eggshell glaze contains pigments that allow the colour to shift and blend in accordance with its surroundings. The eggshell glaze appears a deep rich cream in one moment but can change to an almost pure white when used with other white glazed dinnerware. Mixed from scratch and custom formulated to create just the right colour and texture, this glaze looks organic and understated.
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 built up his artisanal 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.
