Announcement   I try to keep a broad selection of in stock pieces but Coastal Ceramics is primarily a custom shop. Be sure to check my "Large Custom Orders" section to see if I can make a custom set of ceramic coral reef tiles, or a wall of flower blooms or a wall of hand shaped bowls for you.

My hand shaped slab bowls provide a wall of familiar and comfortable shapes yet each is free flowing and abstract. My reef tiles and flower bloom murals contain many a favorite inhabitant of favorite bays, oceans and gardens around the world. I strive for the feel of swimming over shallow coral reefs with my ocean reef pieces and the feel of walking through a spring garden with blooms bursting everywhere with my ceramic flower blooms.

All pieces are OOAK and I use no molds, stamps, pottery wheels nor mass production techniques of any kind. All of my ocean and garden wall sculptures are hand made, unique and signed.
5% of my sales are donated each year to the Women's Center, Operation Straw pet rescue and other local and national charities.

Working with Al was a wonderful experience. We expected the pieces within just 2 weeks off ordering. The professionalism throughout the experience was just outstanding. The pieces are gorgeous, and we couldn't be happier with the end result!

About

My custom pieces consist of your favorite ocean organisms or your favorite flower blooms and will be sure bring warm memories.

I am Floyd Alton (Al) Heberer and live in South Georgia. My slab bowls, flower and ocean wall sculptures are all either once or twice kiln fired clay, a material that can last through the ages. I strive for my coral reef art to give the feel of swimming over shallow coral reefs and for my flower bloom wall sculptures to give the feel of walking through a bright spring garden with large blooms bursting everywhere. My free form slab bowls allow for familiar yet contemporary designs. Durable enough to grace a beach or garden side bath or kitchen, my ceramic pieces can compliment any room.

All of my pieces are OOAK and use use no molds, stamps, pottery wheels nor mass production techniques of any kind. This is time consuming but the only way to have truly unique pieces and no two are ever alike unless needed for the design. I use a variety of underglazes, glazes and specialty glazes to get desired look and feel.

5% of sales go to several national and local charities.

Welcome to CoastalCeramics, home to OOAK ocean and garden art tiles, wall art and sculptures. Kiln fired ceramic pieces are durable enough for a bay or garden side kitchen or bath and pretty enough to go on any wall or shelf. Each of my pieces are unique, hand made and signed.
