Arrington Design, along with Gerald Arrington Stoneware Ceramics, started up their unique stoneware crafting business after the founder, Gerald Arrington, spent 25 years in Idaho crafting his skills in the arts.
After meeting his wife, Karen, the two moved to Sonoma County in California to beginning creating his awesome stoneware creations for a living. For more than 16 years, Gerald has been honing his craft to create one-of-a-kind stoneware ceramics, made, of course, by hand.
Gerald describes his process for crafting his creations like this:
It’s a process that begins by throwing a closed form on the wheel. While the piece is still on the wheel, colored slips are added to create the stratification. After a period of drying, he begins the altering process by paddling the form until it takes on the shape and characteristics of a river stone. The resulting pieces are reminiscent of stratified sedimentary stones worn and smoothed by water. After creating several stones in a variety of shapes and sizes, he further refines his art into sculpture for the table, home, and garden.
This process leads to the creation of stoneware that’s truly beautiful, and unlike anything you’ve seen before. And because of the handcrafting process that Gerald uses each piece is also unlike any other piece.
