Announcement    Saxon Designs is a small private studio located in Igo CA (formerly located in New England) . I specialize in
handmade stoneware ceramics and hand-forged bronze and silver jewelry. All work is designed and created by me.
I have sold my work in 4 galleries in the New England Area, as well as in juried craft fairs in the New England area.

We recently have relocated our studio to the beautiful town of Igo CA. Our jewelry making studio is up and running. The pottery studio shoud resume production in March.

All jewelry pieces are original handmade work by me. I design and create each piece individually. With a very few small exceptions, all the metal work is done by me by hand. I design and forge each piece of jewelry by hand (I do not just assembled mass produced components). Visit our website at saxondesigns.com for more info. Many of the bronze pieces can be made in silver for an additional charge. Please contact me for more information.
Please note we are refilling the on-line jewelry inventory, so look for new items arriving regularly.


I create each stoneware (pottery) 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.
