We are a small-batch ceramics business that forges handmade and wheel-thrown goods with a focus on minimalism and functionality. Established in California, Stone + Sparrow combines traditional wheel-thrown and handmade methods with modern and Scandinavian design aesthetics. Each piece goes through an iterative design process where it is stripped down to its essential elements. The final designs are crafted and detailed into pieces intended to ware well over time.


I'm Kate, the heart of our little business. I started throwing on a kick-wheel in the Santa Cruz Mountains when I was 9 years old and I fell in love. After studying ceramics in college, I began a project management career in corporate America. ​ I was looking for something to shake up the everyday so I signed up for a membership at a local studio. I hit the wheel hard and renewed my love for making things by hand. It didn't take long for my old passion to become my new side-hustle. Working with my husband and design partner, Matt, Stone + Sparrow was formed.


We're now growing Stone + Sparrow full-time here in Pittsburgh, PA.

So beautiful, my 21 year old son has stopped using any other bowls and always comments how gorgeous everything looks when in them. Packaged well. Arrived quickly. We couldn’t be happier

Love this candle! It's so cute that I definitely plan on reusing the container once the candle is all burned out. I just wish the larger size would come back in stock now!

I absolutely love this! The container is such a cool shape and beautifully made. The candle smells great too. It’s a gift and came quickly and very nicely wrapped and ready for giving. Thank you so much!
