Our Story 
Slate Short Exterior

Slate Short Exterior


Introducing Slate, the most alluring glaze to join the We Ponder Collection. With Slate, we're delving into the realm of deep, moody aesthetics, catering to those who want to embrace raw, natural materials and a darker, more atmospheric ambiance to their space. Taking cues from the designs of Saxon Hall, a distinguished Tasmanian architect renowned for his adept integration of local timbers and captivating darker facades, Slate encapsulates the very essence of his architectural vision. We aimed to craft a glaze that seamlessly complements Tasmania's rugged landscape and the remarkable architecture it inspires. Slate Exterior is the perfect cohesive element for a moodier facade. Slate itself is a captivating dark charcoal nearly black hue, with intriguing variations of mottled copper and chocolate tones, unique to each batch and firing position within the kiln. When bathed in direct sunlight, Slate takes on a subtle shimmer, almost reminiscent of a metallic finish. A custom designed electrical back plate ensures a snug fit against your wall. To maintain uniformity while preserving the unmistakable handmade charm, Slate is slip-cast. Slate Exterior has a closed ceramic top, and is suitable for exterior installation.
