sheppardhandmade's Shop Announcement


All items are made by me in my home studio.

Buttons are made from a rolled slab of clay, carefully shaped, textured and painted by hand. Any other clay work may be either hand-built or wheel-thrown. Extra care is taken to ensure that all edges are rounded and smooth. They are glaze fired at cone 6, or about 1100 degrees celcius, making a very strong clay product. All glazes are food safe.

Clay buttons are quite strong. However, since they are ceramic, some care should be taken. They may go through the washer and dryer with the garment turned inside out to reduce the bumping and friction on the buttons. Water and gentle detergent will not damage them. They are perfectly suited for hand-knits, and would look great on a hand sewn bag!
