What a magical discovery, this mocha diffusion.

We're just beginning to experiment with the technique for some of our plates and air plant holders. So do stay tuned. And if you're in the Chapel Hill, Pittsboro, Siler City area, come on down to the Arts Incubator in Siler City to see what's new.

We'll also be at the Bynum Bridge Fest in April 21 with lots of new designs.


Rainbow trout butter dishes, mugs and tumblers March 10, 2016 09:55

The rainbow trout are everywhere on the website!

We have new covered butter dishes, trout leaping off our coffee mugs and on our new drink tumblers. If you have friends or family who love flyfishing, these make great gifts they won't find anywhere else.

Give us a couple of weeks to create a set for you - we keep a few of each design in the studio.

So spread the word and enjoy.


Better Butter Dishes November 08, 2015 16:31

We've added two new butter dish designs to the website.

One that we previewed at the "Autumn with Topsail" show at the coast last month features a handmade rosewood butter knife comfortably resting in the melting butter slice on top.

The other that also drew a lot of attention at "Topsail" is our "Breaching Dolphin" butter dish. Both are on the website for immediate shipping now.


Our new custom tiles and dinner plates May 05, 2015 17:49

Now here's a whole new direction for Sierra Terra Cotta. We have created relationships with some of the finest ceramic decal manufacturers to allow you to have custom ceramic products with your own images.

Custom ceramic tile boxes

Here, for example, is one of our new designs created from our digital images from our garden last summer. The image is sent to our decal creator and we then apply the decal to our ceramic tiles, fire to about 1450 degrees and attach it to these beautiful, handmade rosewood boxes and frames. A real treasured and personal gift.

Custom Plates

And here, we created a custom plate for a friend with his digital image of a childhood memory.

So - if this gets you thinking about what you might do with those special family images, get in touch and we'll give you all the details...

Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to share this with friends.
