Artisan, unique, one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted pottery is what Off Center Clay is all about. And these are things we value here at WCS as well. Jim Sandefur is the artist behind the bowls and mugs of this company. He has been throwing pottery since the seventies, but he rediscovered his love in 2007 when he fired his first pot in years in an anagama - a wood-fire, tunnel-like kiln. You will quickly notice that his work has an emphasis on gesture and movement - hence "off center". The wood-fire process produces exceptional pottery because there are unending variables that effect the final result - where the pot is placed, how hot the fire gets, how the ash settles, which other pots sit around it, how long it is in the kiln. . . However, you are assured of a high-quality, hand-made vessel unlike anything else when you get Off Center Clay. Check out his unique shaving mugs. We look forward to carrying more of his work.
