Please note that the shop will be on vactaion from July 11 through August 10 2016.
During that time we will not be able to process any orders.

Saxon Designs is a small private studio located in Carlisle MA. I specialize in
handmade stoneware ceramics and hand-forged bronze and copper jewelry.
I sell most of my work at galleries and juried craft fairs in the Boston area. All pieces are original handmade work by me. Visit our website at saxondesigns.com for more info.

I designs and create the bronze beads and focal pieces by hand using traditional metalworking techniques and precious metal clay. I do not use mass produced metal beads or focal pieces. These pieces are not just assembled components from mass-produced metal items, they are uniquely designed and crafted by hand.

I create each stoneware piece by hand, from design to finish. This is a single-artist operation and I don't have a staff of potters throwing for me nor do I use mass production pottery techniques (such as casting, etc). The stoneware process can be lengthy, requiring several kiln firings to produce a single piece. The final firing is the glaze firing which requires 12 hours of time to produce the proper glaze melt.
Kiln firing requires that several (up to 30 or so pieces in my kiln) are fired together at once, so I have to plan 30 pieces concurrently when working on a group of pottery. This makes custom work difficult to do since it requires a full kiln to fire, and it may require multiple firings to complete.

This lovely pottery candle holder is everything that I hoped it would be and more. It is actually larger than I thought it would be and so very well made that I wish everyone could have one. Thank you for sharing your pottery skills. This is one amazing piece!
