Shop of Skulls

Shop for hand made ceramic skulls including Day of the Dead sugar skulls and black skull accessories, soap or lotion pump dispensers, spoon rests and more. My ceramics are created one piece at a time in my studio located in the Texas Hill Country. I use a variety of clay bodies from liquid slip to slab clay to create my pieces. I do not use outside help to create or make my ceramics, each and every piece I sell is made by me in my shop. All ceramic pieces are fired in my kiln.



Shop of Skulls is located in the beautiful Hill Country west of Austin in the small community of Spicewood. All ceramics are made in my shop, I do not use imported bisque and pass it off as my own, all pieces are slip cast in my studio using plaster casting molds, many molds I use are vintage pieces and no longer available. My clay and glazes are from the USA. The glazes used on all my pieces are non-toxic, lead free and food safe and most of all people and pet friendly.
