Stone House Pottery & Gallery’s Collection:
- Bronze sculpture. Sculpted from clay and cast in bronze, these one-of-a-kind sculptures embrace the human form. Highlighting the most graceful and divine figures; movement and balance become effortless.
- Clay tiles. All original tile designs are sculpted in wax on top of 1/2 inch plywood. A plaster mould is made of the original, then a casting plastic is cast into this first mould, allowed to set up and cure and removed from the mould. This gives us a plastic tile exactly like the original and it is used as the master pattern. All production moulds are then made from the master pattern. Clay is pressed into the production mould and left to dry. The plaster absorbs moisture from the tile and in so doing releases the clay from the plaster mould. Once dry the tile is glazed and fired to maturity.
