Founded and run by ceramicist Peter Sheldon, Sheldon Ceramics is a ceramics studio in downtown Los Angeles just off the LA River. We look toward our environs of dilapidated industry, appearing in an ongoing state of transformation by the forces of weather and age, as a site of inspiration not unlike the geological forces that, over millions of years, developed the raw materials we use in our pottery. In this industrial chaos, we find moments of stillness to articulate form. Pottery is a process by which various types of earth come under fire to create objects of beauty. Each day we choose to render our pieces by hand on a wheel, animating clay as we draw out our shapes in space.
