A California-based ceramic studio, Match Stoneware makes one-of-a-kind dishware and decorative vessels inspired by the ocean, forests and earth that make up the state's uniquely diverse landscape. From the Martian terrains of Joshua Tree, to the moss covered Muir Woods and giant sequoias, each piece tells a story through its handcrafted design and distinct glazing. Starting with clay that is sourced directly from the earth, they use various ancient techniques to produce one-of-a-kind ceramics made without the use of molds or dyes—every piece is hand thrown on the wheel.
While Match Stoneware honors the long history of this humble craft, they also strive to push the boundaries of the art form, experimenting with different bodies of clay and combining old traditions with modern techniques. They are dedicated to creating beautiful and meaningful pieces that reflect the rich history of ceramic making and the rich beauty on their doorstep.
