Each with a different sunny little face this set of six coasters is made from a coarse groggie stoneware clay rich brownish red in color. The Shino glaze reacts differently on each piece making each sun totally unique. Shino glazes, Japanese in origin, have been around for literally hundred of years. I liken this particular glaze to that of a braised creme brulee with the raised surface a textural rusty reddish brown, and the recessed areas a creamy golden off-white, and very lovely.

• each coaster measures about 3 1/2" wide and 5/16" thick.
• 6 soft rubbery feet on each coaster.
• studio stamp on the bottom of each coaster.
• dishwasher safe

These coasters are created using a plaster press mold of my own creation. Below is a little but about my process:

It all starts with a perfect set of originals... I make a bunch by hand and picked the best ones - a lot of suns were created, but only six made the cut to be immortalized in plaster. When the mold is dry it's ready to use, and I start by rolling out a thick slab of clay from which I cut out plugs with a hexagon shaped cookie cutter. I press the plugs into the mold, tamp off the excess clay and finish it with my Ranch studio stamp. When the plaster has absorbed the moisture from the surface of the clay the coasters to shrink just enough to slip out perfectly when the mold is flipped over. I dry them very slowly over the next week sandwiching them between two sheets of drywall with weight on top to ensure they stay flat through to the final glaze firing.
