What makes an item a Second?

Seconds are imperfect. They haven’t passed our quality assurance for a number of reasons ranging from imperfections on the glaze surfaces, unexpected color results, cracks, fractures, warping, odd shapes, or missing/incorrectly placed stamps or makers marks. 

In ceramics, “seconds” are celebrated and lovingly integrated into our homes and hearts. Some of our most cherished pieces and glazes have come from a “firing gone wrong”. One example is our Frost glaze, which was inspired by a misfiring of our seasonal Winterberry glaze.

Here are some examples of what you can expect from a second. Please note that these depicted flaws and items do not represent the items available this year. Your seconds will be selected at random, are non-refundable, and cannot be exchanged. Our team is hard at work narrowing down this year's selection so there are minimal imperfections that do not hinder the functionality of the piece. 


We hope you find something you love! Please note that your items in your cart are not secured until you have completed the checkout process. You can streamline this process by creating or signing into your account on our website and saving your mailing and/or billing address along with your preferred payment option.

The sale includes vases, drinking vessels, embossed art tiles as well as a selection of architectural field tiles while supplies last. We have sorted through all of our seconds stock and picked the best pieces to include in this online sale. Items will be listed by object and glaze color. Most of the field tile is sold in 3 square foot increments or in full lots. Items in the sale will be priced up to 50% off. Member discounts do not apply to seconds sale items.
