The BDDW ceramics are individually hand crafted and drawn in Tyler Hays’ Frankford Philadelphia ceramics studio.
While excavating near the studio to install geothermal heating, Tyler and his crew discovered a vein of high quality stoneware. They named it the Frankford Clay Pit. After digging out about 20 bathtubs of clay, they backfilled the hole, permanently sealing up the clay pit. The early BDDW ceramics pieces are created from this limited-quantity, as-local-as-it-gets clay.
